MONTREAL, March 9, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSXV: SDW), a leading manufacturer of environmentally efficient industrial water heaters and cost effective heat recovery systems for traditional boilers, is pleased to announce that LONG Building Technologies in Denver, Colorado, has received an order for a Sofame Technologies Percotherm® stack heat recovery system from Colorado College in Colorado Springs. Delivery is scheduled for this summer.
According to Jim Cain, Technical Services Manager at Colorado College, "This project will substantially contribute towards meeting our President's Climate Initiative Program by 2020". The Sofame direct contact heat exchange system will provide Colorado College the ability to achieve significant carbon reduction savings with an attractive return on investment.
Cliff Littlejohn, Director of Business Development at LONG added, "LONG's Building Technologies has enjoyed steady growth in recent years with a major focus on products and system control which result in lower energy consumption and a reduced carbon footprint. Sofame's expertise in boilers and heat recovery was a key factor in engineering this solution for Colorado College".
Ted Schendt, of Schendt Engineering in Colorado Springs was retained to perform a study to determine the annual cost savings along with a simple payback associated with the heat recovery system. The results of this study were presented in a report to Colorado College showing an efficiency improvement of approximately 13 percent and a simple payback of approximately 6 years. Colorado College was excited about the environmental and energy efficiency improvements and retained Schendt Engineering to incorporate the design into the Central Plant mechanical systems. According to Mr. Schendt, "We took advantage of a great opportunity to improve the efficiency of their Central Plant and reduce their carbon footprint in a sustainable and cost effective manner."
