Environmental Elements lands Tampa contract


November 19, 1997

Environmental Elements Corp. said yesterday that it won a multimillion-dollar job to install pollution-control equipment at a Tampa, Fla., municipal solid-waste plant.

The Baltimore-based company said the "retrofit project" includes a spray dryer and fabric filter to remove acid gases from the plant.

The contract from Ogden Martin Systems of Hillsborough Inc. is one of the largest this year for Environmental Elements. The deal brings bookings in the first seven months of the company's fiscal year to $34 million. The company wouldn't disclose the Tampa project amount. E. H. Verdery, chairman and chief executive of Environmental, said the job was worth more than $10 million.

As with similar projects for Savannah Energy Systems Company and Bay County, Fla., the Tampa project is intended to ensure compliance with the 1990 Clean Air Act amendments.

"We have been anticipating this order for several weeks and expect it to be followed by several more as the [municipal solid waste] industry schedules their compliance with the requirement to add acid gas removal systems to certain large capacity plants," Verdery said.
