Atlanta, GA – August 15, 2012- Clyde Bergemann Power Group Americas (CBAM), part of global Clyde Bergemann Power Group (CBPG), announced that it has recently been awarded a $180M contract for air pollution control equipment from a major U.S. Utility.
CBAM will engineer, supply and commission a total of twelve (12) Pulse Jet Fabric Filters for particulate control, twelve (12) Powder Activated Carbon Injection systems for mercury mitigation and six (6) Dry Sorbent Injection systems for sulfuric acid mist mitigation for twelve (12) coal fired boilers with a combined 5,000 MW of generating capacity.
This order makes CBAM the leading supplier of fabric filters and dry sorbent injection systems to U.S power plants for compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) new Mercury and Air Toxics Standards (MATS). The MATS rule will require existing power plants to meet reduced emissions of toxic air pollutants such as mercury, particulate matter, and acid gases.
“We are very pleased with receiving this important order” said Hans Schwade, CBAM President and CEO. "CBAM’s comprehensive offerings of emissions control solutions and our highly talented team allowed us to meet all of this important project’s requirements. We look forward to a continued, mutually beneficial project together with our customer.”
Engineering work for the project has already begun with material delivery scheduled to start in spring of 2013. Fabrication will take place in Clyde Bergemann’s new 165,000 square foot plant in Jesup, GA where the company will generate some 70 new jobs. More detailed information about this new facility will be forthcoming in a separate press release.
Franz Bartels, CBPG President and CEO congratulated the CBAM team and said “This is a major success for the entire Clyde Bergemann Power Group. The order confirms our strategy to invest heavily into innovative air pollution control technologies and people in the US market as well as expand domestic manufacturing."
