ThermoEnergy completes expansion of Massachusetts facility

ThermoEnergy Corp has announced the completion of a 28,000 square foot expansion of the manufacturing facility at its Worcester, Massachusetts corporate headquarters.

The expansion will more than double the manufacturing space available to ThermoEnergy, a diversified technologies company engaged in the development and sale of municipal and industrial wastewater recovery and clean power generation technologies.

"The expansion allows us to complete the manufacturing stage of our $27 million contract with the City of New York to deploy an ammonia recovery system at the 26th Ward wastewater treatment plant by Jamaica Bay," said Cary Bullock, ThermoEnergy Corporation's chairman and CEO. 

"The manufacturing stage of the contract is valued at $13.7 million and we expect much of that to be earned in 2012. We estimate that we now have manufacturing space capacity to support at least $25 million dollars of sales revenue, and have begun preliminary steps to prepare for additional capacity expansion when needed."

ThermoEnergy announced the completion of the engineering design phase of the NYC project in August and has now moved on to procurement, fabrication and construction of the system components.

Once in full operation, the company's ammonia recovery process (ARP) will have the potential to prevent as much as 2.4 million pounds of ammonia from entering Jamaica Bay each year, helping the City to achieve its goal of improving the health of Jamaica Bay as outlined under Mayor Bloomberg's Jamaica Bay Watershed Protection Plan.
