$30.2M In Electricity for US Fermi National Accelerator Lab
Peoples Energy Services Corp. in Chicago, IL won a maximum $30.2 million firm fixed price contract for electricity for the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. Work will be performed in Chicago and Batavia, IL. The date of performance completion is December 2007. There were 49 proposals solicited by the Defense Energy Support Center in Fort Belvoir, VA, and 5 responded (SP0600-06-D-8003).
FermiLab works with high energy physics, undertaking projects ranging from linear colliders to cancer treatment research to the search for extra dimensions. With the support of the Department of Energy and in collaboration with commercial suppliers, Fermilab has instituted energy conservation projects, including the development and use of superconducting magnets. Recent improvements will save the laboratory several hundred thousand dollars every year.
