Sofame Receives Seventh Order from Leading Meat Processor

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."
