Phigenics and Argo Systems Win Contract

Will provide water management services to seven U.S. naval bases

Phigenics LLC, a water services company, has won the water management services contract for seven U.S. Naval Bases. Phigenics announced that it won the contract along with Argo Systems, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business with expertise in program management, engineering, construction and information technology. Phigenics and Argo Systems will provide water management services for Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Washington. The bases included in the contract are the U.S. Naval Academy, Washington, D.C. Navy Yard, Naval Support Activity Bethesda, Joint Base Anacostia Bolling and Naval Support Facilities Bethesda, Carderock, Dahlgren and Indian Head.

The contract calls for the evaluation of water, chemical, energy and service efficiency in all steam boilers, high-temperature hot water boilers, chilled water plants and cooling water systems. It also includes assisting NAVFAC Washington in the implementation of efficiency and cost-saving measures in water use and management.

"NAVFAC Washington is focused on ensuring that all energy and water systems under their command are operating at optimal efficiency," says Mike Doyle, Capt., CEC, USN (ret.), and vice president of Operations for Phigenics. "Working in collaboration with NAVFAC personnel, Phigenics identified over $300,000 in savings last year. As we expand the program this year, we expect to achieve even greater savings while ensuring that all water systems are safe."
