Company Delivers Composite Lift Station to Baton Rouge

Energy Composites Corp. delivered its first municipal sewer lift station to Notoco Industries, the company's distributor in the Gulf Coast Region, for installation in Baton Rouge, La.'s sewer system.

According to a Nov. 25 press release, the unit, which is 10 feet in diameter, 35-feet long, and made out of composites, delivers substantial savings to the taxpayers of Baton Rouge on both an installation and life-cycle basis. ECC will begin to manufacture the next tranche of lift station orders immediately for municipalities in the state.

Sam Fairchild, chief executive officer, noted that "ECC's design and installation technology ensures that our composite replacement lift stations will come in at an acquisition price substantially below that of the traditional concrete and steel replacement stations. In addition, Baton Rouge can expect these replacements to last for many, many years without measurable maintenance. In a time of financial pressure on municipalities, the ECC approach is a welcome relief."
