Tecogen has announced Tecochill orders from two different cannabis cultivation facilities located in Massachusetts. "The first facility will install two 200-ton Tecochill systems, and the second is installing two 300-ton Tecochill systems," the team with the company explains. "Both facilities will utilize the chilled water for cooling the facility, while the waste heat from the chillers is to be used for dehumidification. The units will be installed and operational by the end of 2019 and include factory service contracts for each site."
“Operating costs become crucial for the long-term viability of cultivation facilities such as these,” said Stephen Lafaille, Director of Business Development at Tecogen. “The Tecochill solution is an important factor in reducing energy costs associated with maintaining precise temperature and humidity for optimal growth. Our chillers provide a unique set of benefits including the efficiency of combined heat and power wrapped into an industrial-grade chiller solution which is already a necessity, so the chillers satisfy multiple needs while significantly reducing operating costs.”
These orders bring the total number of Massachusetts cannabis cultivation facilities using the Tecochill product to 16, with further orders expected.
“We are pleased that the indoor cultivation industry is recognizing the tremendous energy savings of natural gas cooling with Tecochill,” noted Benjamin Locke, Tecogen’s CEO. “As other states anticipate recreational cannabis sales, we are working with owners, operators and consulting engineers to keep energy and capital costs down in order to succeed in an increasingly competitive and expanding market.”
