Clyde Bergemann inaugurates new plant in Georgia

Clyde Bergemann Power Group Americas (CBAM) inaugurated its new plant location in Jesup, Ga. and celebrated its 25th anniversary of entering the U.S. market at a recent ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Around 100 guests attended the event, including many CBAM customers as well as state and local government leaders, members of the business sector and vendors. Global Power Group Chief Operating Officer Hans Schwade told the audience the “tremendous support of the community” was a deciding factor in building a plant in Jesup.

The new plant, which is Clyde Bergemann’s second in Georgia, provides additional fabrication capacity for air pollution control and materials handling solutions needed by coal-fired power plants as a result of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s new Mercury and Air Toxic Standards. The 165,000-square-foot plant, which already has more than 100 employees, will produce components for the company’s pulse jet fabric filters, sorbent injection systems and bottom ash conveyers.

The decision to establish the new facility follows a recent $180 million order from LG&E/KU to supply fabric filters and sorbent injection systems for their 5,000 MW coal-fired fleet in Kentucky.
