Mercury Marine's Environmental Stewardship
A recent expansion at Mercury Marine in Fond du Lac Wisconsin has caught the attention of professionals in the energy and environmental industries.
At an event this past May, the Wisconsin Association of Energy Engineers (WAEE) showcased Mercury's new process equipment and pollution control system. The 75 attendees consisted of facility engineers, plant managers, project managers, contractors, vendors, and energy consultants. They were given in-depth presentations and a plant tour of the expansion project as well as the air pollution control system being utilized on the new engine test lines.
Anguil Environmental was honored to be a part of this project and event. The engine exhaust treatment device is Mercury Marine's third abatement system designed, fabricated and installed by Anguil. The Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system targets Carbon Monoxide, Total Hydrocarbons, Non-Methane Hydrocarbons, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs), and Particulate. The custom-designed SCR system utilizes an integrated air-to-air heat exchanger that reduces the facility's energy consumption and lowers Mercury's carbon footprint.
Focus on Energy (FOE), Wisconsin's energy efficiency and renewable resource program, worked with Mercury Marine to determine the energy saved and contributed funds for the project based on those savings. FOE representatives were at the event to present Mercury Marine with a reimbursement check of $170,688 for their environmental stewardship efforts.
