TAMPA, Florida, February 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
LIRR Recovery Team Used MagneGas2® for its Metal Cutting Fuel During Incident Recovery Efforts
MagneGas Corporation ("MagneGas®" or the "Company") (Ticker Symbol: MNGA ) a leading technology company in the renewable resources and environmental solutions industries, announced today that it was informed that MagneGas2® was the fuel of choice for metal cutting and repairs on the Long Island Railroad ("LIRR")'s January 2017 refurbishment project in Brooklyn, New York.
The LIRR experienced an accident in January of 2017 on a section of rail road in Brooklyn, New York. The accident impaired much of the structural steel and railway surrounding the accident site. Soon thereafter, the LIRR recovery team was deployed to repair the rail and surrounding structure, remove the train and restore service. There was significant steel repair required that was time sensitive and had to be performed indoors, in tight quarters.
The Company believes that MagneGas2® was selected over other fuels for this project due to its faster cutting speed and ease of use. The fuel was sourced from MagneGas's New York distributor, AWISCO.
In 2016, MagneGas® and AWISCO partnered in a marketing effort to expand the use of MagneGas2® in the New York and New Jersey markets. As part of its marketing plan MagneGas® personnel demonstrated the fuels' superior metal cutting benefits throughout the region with assistance from the AWISCO sales team. In January of 2017, the LIRR maintenance and safety teams incorporated MagneGas2® as an alternative to acetylene for various repair projects as part of its refurbishment project.
"Although this was a tragic accident, we are honored that MagneGas2® was selected for such an important project. The contractors on the project had the opportunity to choose from a variety of metal working fuels available today. The fact that they selected MagneGas2® solidifies our belief about the superior qualities of the fuel. Being the only fuel in our industry known to us that is created from a renewable source, testing has shown that it cuts 38% faster than acetylene - the primary market alternative to MagneGas2® - making it a more efficient fuel choice. We are pleased the refurbishment project was successful and that we were able to play a role in restoring service to the LIRR," stated Ermanno Santilli, CEO of MagneGas.
