EMCOR Group, Inc. Subsidiary Awarded Contract For New York Water Treatment Plant Electrical Systems

NORWALK, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--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, announced that its Welsbach Electric subsidiary has been awarded a contract to perform the installation of the electrical systems at the Newtown Creek Water Treatment Plant in Brooklyn, New York.

Welsbach Electric is responsible for the demolition and complete electrical installation, including power, lighting and sub systems, associated with re-construction of the South Battery Grit, Aeration and Settlement tanks at the Newtown Creek Water Treatment Plant, which is currently in the midst of a 10 year, $2.5 billion dollar, capital upgrade. One of the largest portions of the contract includes electrical installation at a large control building---the South Control Building---and at three free standing electrical support buildings located adjacent to the tanks.

The largest structure at the Treatment Plant, the South Control Building, is a three-story, 45,000 square foot concrete structure. The building houses all of the major power distribution, control and instrumentation equipment for the Treatment Plant and is where Welsbach Electric will ultimately install all of the power, lighting and sub systems required for the South Control Building.

"The major scopes of electrical work to be performed at the Newtown Creek Water Treatment Plant---from large equipment installation to major conduit installations---are all areas in which Welsbach Electric excels. We look forward to being involved in the final phases of one of the largest infrastructure upgrade projects in New York City," said Keith Carney, President and CEO of Welsbach Electric.
