PyroGenesis Signs Additional $1.1MM Contract with US Tunneling Company
MONTREAL, Dec. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (http://pyrogenesis.com) (TSX: PYR) (OTCQB: PYRNF) (FRA: 8PY), (the "Company", the “Corporation” or "PyroGenesis") a Company that
designs, develops, manufactures and commercializes plasma atomized metal powder, plasma waste-to-energy systems and plasma torch products, is pleased to announce today that, further to its press
releases dated April 1st and 21st, 2020, it has signed an additional contract (the “Contract”) with a US based tunneling client (the “Client”) for approx. $1.1MM. The total
value of all contracts, including the one announced today, entered into with the Client is in excess of $3.6MM. The Company has received $1.3MM to date under these contracts. The Client’s name will
remain confidential for competitive reasons.
Based on these contracts, PyroGenesis will be designing, manufacturing, testing and supplying the Client with a plasma torch tailored specifically for tunneling (the “TT1 Torch”). The TT1 Torch is expected to be delivered in the second half of 2021, at which time it will then be tested. The Client is committed to purchase exclusively from PyroGenesis, and the Company is committed to exclusively supply the Client with plasma torches and auxiliary equipment for tunneling applications.
PyroGenesis’ high-powered plasma torch will be used to replace traditional tunneling methods. An important benefit in using plasma-based tools versus traditional methods is its potential to drill through all geologies with greater flexibility in size diameter, while at the same time being more economical, efficient and environmentally friendly.
“This is the second announcement PyroGenesis has made in as many months which highlight advances in our plasma torch offerings,” said Mr. P Peter Pascali, CEO and Chair of PyroGenesis. “As you can see, not only are our torch offerings steadily moving forward, but are doing so in totally independent applications. This bodes well for the future and once again, underscores both the interest in, and versatility of, our torch offerings which at the same time are being recognized as effective environmental solutions.”
