TSX - NRG
OTCQX - ANRGF
CALGARY, Nov. 8, 2013 /CNW/ - Alter NRG Corp. ("Alter NRG" or the "Company")
is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with Air Products and
Chemicals Inc. ("Air Products") to provide a Westinghouse Plasma Gasification
Solution for $USD21 million. Air Products confirmed its intention to proceed
with a second plasma gasification facility (the "Project") during its recent
fourth quarter earnings call held on October 29, 2013 and its location would
be adjacent to Air Products first project, the Tees Valley 1 Renewable Energy
Facility in Northeast England.
The Company began its relationship with Air Products in January 2009 when it
signed a Joint Development Agreement that provided to Air Products five site
licenses and access to the Westinghouse Plasma Technology. Subsequently, Air
Products developed the Tees Valley Renewable Energy Facility in Northeast
England that is expected to process 950 tonnes per day of household waste and
convert it into 50 MegaWatts of renewable electricity. Alter NRG received
the purchase order for the first project in December 2011 and has now
delivered all of the plasma gasification equipment. The first Tees Valley
project is in late stages of construction, and Air Products has begun the
procurement phase on the second Tees Valley Project which is approximately the
same size and configuration. Based on information released by Air Products,
the total spending on the two combined projects is over $800 million.
Alter NRG and its wholly owned subsidiary Westinghouse Plasma Corp. will
provide gasifier equipment, related control, instrumentation, and engineering
services for a fixed price of approximately USD$21 million. Alter NRG
expects to realize the majority of the revenue within fifteen months. As part
of the agreement, Alter NRG expects to receive a down payment within 15 days
and further milestone payments will be received as fabrication progresses.
Walter Howard, Chief Executive Officer of Alter NRG states that "having an
industry-leading company like Air Products commencing construction of a second
facility utilizing our Model G65 gasifier solution is a significant commercial
milestone. This illustrates Air Products' confidence with and commitment to
the Westinghouse Plasma Technology and is encouraging to our other customers
worldwide. We look forward to supporting Air Products as they continue to
expand their plasma gasification energy from waste business."
