Littleton, CO, Mar. 13, 2006 — ADA-ES, Inc. announced that it has been awarded a new contract to supply commercial mercury control systems for two existing, 350 gross MW rated, coal-fired power plants in the Eastern U.S.
The total value of contracts for the activated carbon injection equipment is in excess of $1.7 million. It is expected that the equipment will be designed, fabricated, and delivered during late summer of 2006.
Plans call for the first unit to be in operation by early fall 2006 and the second unit in early 2007. The mercury control systems will be installed on existing electrostatic precipitators for the control of mercury emissions.
ADA-ES has demonstrated activated carbon-based mercury control technology at over 20 power plants across the country and this technology has become an option for control of mercury emissions.
Mike Durham, president of ADA-ES, stated, “These contracts reinforce the important role that carbon injection technology is playing in the control of mercury from coal-fired power plants. Combined with the six contracts we announced in the past six months, we now have contracts for eight commercial mercury control systems.”
