Sofame to Develop Thermal Energy Efficiency Pilot Project with Chinese Utility (CGNPC)

MONTREAL, June 23, 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 Sofame and CGN Energy Service Co., Ltd (CGNESCO) have met to discuss future cooperation. Sofame's Chairman, Robert Presser, led the first face to face meeting with technical and commercial representatives of CGNESCO in Shenzhen at CGNPC headquarters on June 18th.  CGNESCO had expressed interest in utilizing Sofame's condensing technology in the Chinese market.

CGNESCO is a subsidiary of CGNPC, China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group, which is the largest Chinese nuclear power utility.  CGNESCO serves industrial and institutional clients by offering engineering and consulting in industrial energy efficiency, green power and power plant retrofits. This move is part of the Chinese government's initiative to reduce the intensity of industrial energy use including fossil fuels, and to improve China's environmental performance.  Sofame is undertaking the translation of its technical literature into Mandarin to allow CGNESCO to begin the qualification process of a pilot project.  Sofame will provide consulting services and develop the plans and specifications for the systems which would be built under license in China. Sofame has developed over 300 industrial energy efficiency systems in North America and France since 1984.

According to John Gocek, Sofame's President & CEO, "Providing consulting services to a state-owned utility such as CGNESCO is anopportunity for Sofame to leverage its main asset which is engineering know-how.  Outsourcing of equipment manufacturing in North America and even overseas is in keeping with Sofame's new lean business model."
