MONTREAL, Nov. 19, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSXV: SDW) (OTC.PK: SFMGF), a leading manufacturer of industrial environmentally efficient condensing water heaters and cost effective heat recovery systems for traditional boilers, has recently delivered its Percotherm® system to MMC Contractors National Inc. of Kansas City, Missouri, which was awarded the design/assist plumbing, medical gas and HVAC services contract, along with a local partner, Johnson & Jordan Mechanical Contractors.  Start-up and calibration of the system will now proceed.  The hospital is scheduled to open in the spring of 2014 (

Sofame's ultra-efficient water heating equipment is used in hospitals across Canada, and has been awarded numerous prizes, most recently from ASHRAE in 2011.  MaineGeneral is the second hospital in the Unites States to adopt Sofame's ultra-efficient water heating and boiler efficiency solutions.  The first was Capital Health's Regional Medical Center in Trenton, New Jersey, which operates a Sofame Steam Pump®.  Customer interest in Sofame's solutions has been growing in the United States since 2007 when marketing formally began.  Sofame systems have been installed and are operating in major American universities, international pharmaceutical manufacturers including Astra Zeneca, which has received an EPA Energy Star award for energy efficiency at its plant in Newark, Delaware, and at international food processors in Hershey, Pennsylvania and Battle Creek Michigan.

According to Mr. John Gocek, Sofame's President, "Sofame's products reduce energy costs significantly, and help to curb emissions of CO2 and NOx. Systems now running in the United States are what new customers needed to see.  These objectives have been achieved during the severe recession, and without any bank financing.  Our investors have been patient, and we expect the company's performance to continue improving."
