1st in Maine. 2nd in the Nation. Mechanical Services Turns TAMC On To Compressed Natural Gas

Presque Isle, Maine (May 11, 2013) — When The Aroostook Medical Center (TAMC) searched for a solution to resuscitate the facility’s energy bill, they called Mechanical Services for a consult.

Mechanical Services President Chris Green introduced TAMC to compressed natural gas (CNG) because of several sound reasons: the ease of upgrading the existing boiler system; the reduction of TAMC’s carbon footprint; and the high rate of return on investment.

Startup costs for the CNG conversion pegging a return on investment in less than one year. A prescription for success.

“This not only makes sound economic sense and helps us advance our mission, but allows us to greatly reduce our carbon footprint and makes our organization a much better steward of the environment,” Sylvia Getman, TAMC President and CEO.

At the official Valve Turning Ceremony held May 13, Mechanical Services and participating partners joined TAMC officials to applaud the historic occasion.
