ENER-G Rudox, the US subsidiary of UK-based combined heat and power (CHP) specialist ENER-G Cogen International (ECI), announced it has invested $8 million in a new headquarters and facility in New Jersey.
The company has purchased a new facility in East Rutherford, New Jersey, to expand its production capacity and showcase its products.
The new headquarters will contain ENER-G Rudox’s manufacturing operations, test bays, and rental equipment fleet. It will also house the company’s parts and service departments and equipment remote monitoring operations.
The facility is expected to be fully operational by mid-2016.
ENER-G Rudox has been focusing on CHP production, generator sets, generator rentals and service since 1949.
In the past three years, ENER-G Rudox has increased the size of its workforce by 25 percent.
Ryan Goodman, president of Cogeneration at ENER-G Rudox, said: “Engineering and manufacturing firms such as ours make a rich contribution to the New Jersey economy. Continued government support for sustainable energy is critical to building the new low carbon economy in which we operate.”
Alan Barlow, CEO of ENER-G Rudox, said ENER-G Rudox’s technologies typically provide a 15-20 percent reduction in a firm’s carbon footprint and assist customers in attaining carbon abatement designed to meet the stricter national standards now in place.
ECI has more installed CHP systems across the UK and Western Europe than any other supplier. ECI operates more than 1500 CHP sites worldwide, with 500 MWe+ of operational cogeneration systems in 11 countries.
