WASHINGTON, Oct. 10 (UPI) -- Siemens Government Technologies Inc. and its industry team have won contracts in all four areas of the U.S. Army's energy-saving program.

The initial indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity awards, in the areas of geothermal, solar, wind and biomass technologies, were given by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Engineering and Support Center, working with the Army Energy Initiatives Task Force.

"As the only company to be awarded all four renewable technologies on this landmark MATOC (Multiple Award Task Order Contracts), Siemens has assembled a core team of trusted and reliable partners who bring more than 100 years of combined industry experience in the energy market," said Judy Marks, president and CEO, Siemens Government Technologies, Inc.

"Together, with best-in-class subcontractors Bechtel and AECOM, we will deliver mission success by responding to task orders with efficiency, innovation and effectiveness to accomplish the Army's goals of increasing their use of renewable energy, enhancing infrastructure resilience and energy security, while decreasing energy costs."

The Army is using MATOC to procure reliable, locally generated, renewable and alternative energy for Department of Defense installations through power purchase agreements. The contracts feature a three-year base with seven one-year options.

The Siemens Government Technologies team is the only one so far to win spots in all four technology areas.
