WATERLOO, Ont.: TurboSonic Technologies Inc. has won a US$4 million contract for its clean air technology from an unidentified US customer for a green energy facility.

The Waterloo, Ont. supplier of air pollution control technologies said the contract, destined for a facility that will generate 100 megawatts of power, is for its proprietary SonicKleen Wet Electrostatic Precipitator (WESP), which removes submicron particulate, acid mists, heavy metals, dioxins, furans and fumes from process gas streams.

The contract will wait on a notice to proceed expected in June 2011 with delivery schedule for April 2012.

TurboSonic CEO Edward Spink said the company was selected as a result of an international competitive bidding process.

“We believe that the many patented advanced features of the SonicKleen WESP and our extensive design and application experience weighed heavily on our success,” he said. “Given the current emphasis on energy efficiency, waste-to-energy, and alternate fuel sources, this is a significant step in TurboSonic’s penetration of this new market.”
