OTCQX - ANRGF
CALGARY, April 28 /CNW/ - (TSX: NRG) (OTCQX: ANRGF) Alter NRG Corp.
("Alter NRG" or the "Company") announces that it has signed a contract
to deliver three of its Marc 11 Westinghouse Plasma torch systems for
approximately USD$1.9 million. The torches are expected to begin
assembly in the second quarter with final delivery in the fourth
quarter of 2011. The same customer ordered three torches in 2010, and
is now ordering additional torches for their industrial application.
Westinghouse Plasma Corporation ("Westinghouse Plasma"), a wholly owned
subsidiary of Alter NRG, has sold plasma torch systems for more than 20
years as a clean and efficient source of intense heat. With rising
metallurgical coal and oil prices as well as more stringent carbon
policies, companies are looking for ways to reduce costs and reduce
their carbon footprint with alternatives like the plasma torches.
Westinghouse Plasma torches produce intense heat that can be greater
than 5000 degrees Celsius and have very low carbon emissions.
Westinghouse Plasma has sold torches since the 1980's for metals
recycling, testing programs, mining and smelting, waste destruction and
other industrial applications.
Mark Montemurro, CEO of Alter NRG believes that "the plasma torch market
is a promising opportunity for our Company as customers look to reduce
their cost structure and carbon footprint. The plasma torch sales have
a much shorter sales cycle without the regulatory hurdles of a full
energy facility, as well as being a mature product offering with
significant commercial history. We are currently in discussions with
several large metallurgical recyclers, steel producers and other
industrial companies regarding plasma torch systems effectiveness for
their industrial application."
