“This order represents another example of our sales focus on customers with multiple needs that can be met with Thermal Energy’s proven solutions," CEO of Thermal Energy. “We first sold GEM steam traps to this customer in January of 2015. Not only did that GEM conversion exceed the customer’s expectations and generate savings faster than the project’s proposed payback period, it opened the door for this latest order. Our heat recovery technology is expected to generate even more savings for this customer and provide a project payback of under two years."
The FLU-ACE heat recovery system and GEM steam traps at this site are expected to generate combined savings of approximately $671 thousand annually, resulting in a combined project payback of just 1.6 years.
In addition to the significant energy savings, the two technologies are expected to reduce the site’s annual greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 2,621 tonnes. That is equivalent to the annual emissions from 552 automobiles or the carbon sequestered by 2,148 acres of forest.
