Louisville, Colorado, Jan. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CEA Industries Inc. (OTCQB: SRNA), doing business as Surna Cultivation Technologies, today announced it has signed one of the largest contracts in its history.
“After working with Aeriz Holdings Corporation, a large, multi-state operator, on projects in Arizona and Illinois, Surna is delighted to be a part of their most recent facility in California. Today we are happy to announce a signed contract for $3.4 million with them for their 96,000 square feet cultivation facility in Riverbank,” said Jon Kozlowski, Surna’s Vice President of Sales. “The project includes Surna’s mechanical engineering services, controls design services and HVACD equipment for the veg, flower, and wet and dry cure rooms. We are excited to work with a client for whom operating costs and efficiency gains are a priority and to have an engineering team that understands and can manage the complex engineering associated with this design.”
This project utilizes combined heat and power (CHP) for onsite power generation. CHP (also known as cogeneration) produces both electricity and thermal energy on-site, replacing or supplementing electricity provided from the local utility and fuel that would be required from a boiler, significantly improving energy efficiency. Surna is incorporating the waste heat produced by the CHP plant into its mechanical design, resulting in substantial waste reduction in parallel with energy efficiency gains. As part of the HVACD equipment order, Surna is providing fan coils, boilers, air handling units and chillers. Surna’s controls design will include the controls of the mechanical system, lighting, CO2, and irrigation.
“At Aeriz, it’s important to us to cultivate top of the line products, while managing operating costs and continuously improving. Working with Surna ensures that our cultivation climate is well-controlled, which helps us to guarantee the high quality we are known for,” said David Thomas, CEO at Aeriz. “We are also confident that Surna’s engineering expertise has improved our opportunities to continue to drive down operating costs with the incorporation of CHP into the mechanical design. Aeriz is committed to sustainability and energy efficiency, and we are thrilled that CHP will help reduce our footprint. We’re very excited about our new facility in Riverbank.”
