EMP wins Portland, Atlanta, Boston contracts

Posted on October 20, 2008

Engineered Machined Products Inc. (EMP), a developer, manufacturer and assembler of advanced thermal and oil management products and engine cooling systems, has received production orders for its advanced "miniHybrid" thermal system from municipal transit authorities in Portland, Ore.; Atlanta and Boston.

Portland-based TriMet formally adopted a resolution authorizing a contract with EMP for purchase of thermal management systems for retrofit on TriMet fixed-route buses. Initially, retrofit of 21 fixed-route buses with EMP's miniHybrid thermal systems is budgeted in TriMet's FY2008-2009 capital budget, based on payback of the retrofit cost in three years, reflecting at least 10,000 gallons of fuel saved annually and annual savings in bus maintenance costs. In addition, TriMet approved procurement of 40 replacement buses, for delivery by spring 2009, with EMP miniHybrid thermal systems installed as original equipment.

Atlanta-based Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) formally notified EMP this week of their acceptance of a production order for procurement of 200 miniHybrid thermal systems to be retrofitted on New Flyer and Orion Transit Buses.

Boston-based Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority (MBTA) has notified EMP that they will retrofit 123 municipal transit buses. All buses will be retrofit to include the EMP miniHybrid thermal system. The retrofit program will commence the first quarter of 2009.
