ThermoEnergy Corporation Signs $1.1 Million Contract to Provide Ammonia Recovery System at Indonesia's Largest Power Plant System Selected by Paiton Energy as the Most Cost-Effective and Energy-Efficient Solution
WORCESTER Mass., Oct. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ThermoEnergy Corp. (OTCBB: TMEN), a diversified technologies company engaged in the development and sales of wastewater recovery and power generation technologies, has announced that it has signed a $1.1 million contract to provide an ARP (Ammonia Recovery Process) system at Paiton Energy's new Paiton 3 power station located on Java Island. Paiton 3 is the first super-critical coal unit in Indonesia and the largest and most efficient coal-fired generating unit on the Java-Bali grid.
The ThermoEnergy ARP system will separate ammonia from the power plants' condensate polishing system regeneration wastewater allowing the plant to recycle the water for steam generation and recover aqueous ammonia for use in the plant's pollution control systems.
After a comprehensive evaluation by Paiton Energy and consulting engineering firm, Burns and Roe, ThermoEnergy's ARP system was selected as a significantly more cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative to traditional air stripping technology. In addition, the ARP system offers a fraction of the footprint that would have been required to handle the same capacity with air stripping towers.
Manufacturing on the ThermoEnergy ARP system will begin in early Q4 2012, with onsite installation planned for Q2 2013. The Company was also successful in obtaining project financing for the order.
"ThermoEnergy wastewater recovery technologies continue to find new applications in the energy sector," said ThermoEnergy Chairman and CEO, Cary Bullock. "We are making significant inroads into oil & gas hydrofracking and biogas production, and we are extremely excited by this first foray into a potentially huge power generation market."
As part of its marketing strategy in Asia, ThermoEnergy recently signed an agreement with KBK (Kyokuto Boeki Kaisha, Ltd.) (8093.T) to represent the company in Japan and in other countries in the region.
