The expansion enables the company to complete the manufacturing stage of its $27m contract with the City of New York to deploy an ammonia recovery system at the 26th Ward wastewater treatment plant by Jamaica Bay.

ThermoEnergy chairman and CEO Cary Bullock said the company now has manufacturing space capacity to support at least $25m of sales revenue, and has begun preliminary steps to prepare for additional capacity expansion when needed.

ThermoEnergy is expected to complete the engineering design phase of the project in August and has now moved to procurement, fabrication and construction of the system components.

Upon operation, the company’s ammonia recovery process will have the potential to prevent as much as 2.4 million pounds of ammonia from entering Jamaica Bay every year.

Furthermore, it will help the city achieve its goal of improving the health of Jamaica Bay.

ThermoEnergy is a diversified technologies company engaged in development and sales of municipal and industrial waste water recovery and clean power generation technologies.
