Bloomfield, NJ-January 3. 2018: D&B Engineering supplied two (2) Tecopower CHP units to Merck & Co., the seventh largest pharmaceutical company in the world. Their New Jersey facility’s existing fuel cell equipment is being upgraded to super-efficient, low-emission Tecopower advanced natural gas-engine technology. Following an extensive engineering and economic evaluation, the Merck team consensus was that Tecogen’s cogeneration units would be the ideal replacement.
In addition to Tecogen’s advanced reliability, the level 3, ultra low-emissions system actually operates with reduced emissions below that of the existing fuel cell unit. CHP can also save facilities considerable money on their energy bills due to its electrical and thermal efficiency and its ability to provide a hedge against electricity cost increases. Nitin Pathakji of Smith Engineering stated, "the project went from concept to reality exceptionally smoothly and in record time due to the strong teamwork between Merck & Co., Smith Engineering/IPS, Tecogen and the local manufacturer’s representative, D&B Engineering."
"It was an enjoyable and outstanding accomplishment to be a part of this talented team and complete the design, procurement and shipment of the two (2) Tecogen CM-75 Cogen Systems at the close of 2017. The Pharmaceutical industry promises to be a key market for Tecogen CHP in 2018 and D&B Engineering is here to support this need," remarked John Taguer of D&B Engineering.Type your paragraph here.
Dear Valued Customer:
With the current economic situation facing the metals industry, it’s likely that you’ve become aware of pending price increases from suppliers. In fact, recently announced tariffs are affecting costs in many industries.
Daikin Applied and several of our other suppliers have recently announced price increases for all equipment that has not been released to production prior to June 15, 2018. Even if you have issued a purchase order to D&B/Daikin, orders must be released no later than June 15th and ship no later than December 15th in order to maintain quoted prices.
If the project schedule doesn’t require the equipment on site in 2018, please consider taking delivery this year as a way to mitigate the impact of the increase.
We understand that this pending increase may create challenges for your business, which is why we are giving as much advance notice as possible. We will continue to monitor competitor pricing actions, and we are confident that Daikin’s pricing will remain aligned with the market.
We truly appreciate your business. Our team is ready to work with you to determine the best course for your projects, goals and budget.
