NORWALK, CONNECTICUT, April 2, 2009 - EMCOR Group, Inc. (NYSE: EME), a Fortune 500® leader in mechanical and electrical construction, energy infrastructure and facilities services for a diverse range of businesses, reported that as previously noted on its 2/26/09 Fourth Quarter Earnings Call, its Trautman and Shreve subsidiary has been awarded a contract to install the mechanical and plumbing systems for the Vestas Wind Turbine Tower Manufacturing Campus in Pueblo, Colorado.
Trautman and Shreve will be responsible for all of the mechanical and plumbing systems involved in Vestas' new 600,000 square foot manufacturing facility, the largest of its kind in the world. In connection with the project, Trautman and Shreve will install 2.4 million pounds of ductwork, including 8 miles of spiral and 2 miles of vacuum duct systems and over 20 miles of industrial gas, mechanical and plumbing piping.
Trautman and Shreve will additionally install twenty air-handling units on the roof of the facility, which will total over 850,000 cubic feet per minute (CFM). Compressed air piping will be installed in order to help power Vestas' manufacturing equipment; Trautman and Shreve will also line the walls in the Surface Treatment building with a custom filtration system in order to contain the paint spray, and install a high-tech advance automation system to control paint inhalants.
Once complete (scheduled for late 2009), the new manufacturing campus will be Vestas' largest and most advanced facility, representing one of the largest single investments in Vestas' history. When fully operational, the new plant will produce over 1000 towers a year.
"We are extremely excited to work on this project and look forward to providing Vestas with the type of precise, high-quality work it requires in order to ensure that the project is completed on its challenging timing and to its exacting standards and rigid specifications, as well as in an environmentally-friendly and safe manner," said Jim Durant, President and CEO of Trautman and Shreve.
