MONTREAL, Sept. 26, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSXV:
SDW), a leading manufacturer of environmentally efficient industrial
hot water systems and cost effective heat recovery equipment, is
pleased to announce that Olymel L.P., a leader in processing and
distribution of pork and poultry throughout Canada, has ordered a
Sofame Hybrid Percomtherm® unit for one of its plants in Quebec. The
equipment, which operates at 96% efficiency, combines condensing
recovery of waste heat from existing boilers with a new direct contact
condensing burner to heat water. The turn-key project was engineered by
a team comprising members from Sofame, Enviroair Industries - Sofame's
Representatives in Quebec, the local gas utility, and R. Nantel &
Associates, a Montreal-based mechanical contractor specializing in
boilers and heating systems.
"At Olymel, energy efficiency projects pay for themselves directly by
reducing annual fuel costs," stated William Laing, Director of
Engineering Services at Olymel L.P. He added, "The decision to
purchase the Sofame unit was based on its heat recovery characteristics
and its ability to produce hot water more efficiently than the
conventional boilers in use. Sofame systems are already operating in
six other Olymel plants across Canada, and their reliable performance
has led to this decision to make a new investment."
According to John Gocek, Sofame's President & CEO, "Sofame is pleased to
continue working with Olymel and our partners in Quebec. This offering,
which includes equipment, installation, and a financial incentive from
the natural gas utility, gave the customer everything needed to assess
project costs and benefits. We are delighted to immediately proceed
with this new contract."
