RJM awarded pollution control project to upgrade six gas fired generators

Norwalk, Conn., March 19, 2002 — RJM Corp. a global provider of emission control technologies, announced a contract for multiple Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emission control technologies from Austin Energy. The NOx reduction technologies to be provided will be applied across all six of Austin Energy’s gas-fired boilers.

Making the announcement, John J Halloran, Vice President of RJM’s Combustion and Environmental division, commented, “We are extremely pleased by our ongoing ability to further penetrate the NOx reduction market as our differentiated technologies continue to gain recognition as a cost effective and efficient method for lowering emissions. Many utilities have begun to comply with the 2004 SIP call regulation, and we are pleased to increasingly be selected as their partner of choice.”

RJM will provide engineering and selectively apply burner upgrades, CFD modeling, NOx Tempering and the turnkey installation for four tangentially fired and two wall fired units for Austin Energy. The RJM modifications to be installed on the units were selected based upon the most cost-effective results across the units on a systemwide basis. Within the last year, Austin Energy installed RJM’s proprietary technology at its Holly #3 power plant and has since reduced the unit’s overall level of NOx emissions by over 50% from the initial baseline emission level of 0.24 lbs./mmBtu.

“As evident from this contract award, we are experiencing increased worldwide demand for the full range of our emission control technologies in spite of the easing of Clean Air Act regulations and lower power production,” stated Richard J. Monro, President and CEO, RJM Corporation.

Oscar Backus, Division Manager, Environmental and Plant Support Services, Austin Energy, said his firm selected RJM for this project because of its willingness and flexibility to address and support Austin’s business objectives and overall NOx compliance strategy. “We chose RJM because of its innovative emission control technology and its recognition in the power generation community for excellent cost-effective performance and high-quality client service. We could not be more pleased to work with RJM once again to support our NOx emission compliance requirements.”
