EVANSVILLE —Mayor Lloyd Winnecke has announced a new company will make Evansville's Park 41 its U.S. manufacturing headquarters, bringing 120 jobs to the city over three years.
Earthcare Energy will manufacture its Total Flow Gas Let Down Generators in space inside the former Whirlpool plant on U.S. 41.
According to Earthcare's website, the gas let down generator generates electricity from wasted pressure in turbines.
Winnecke said the city has prepared a package of loans and grants to Earthcare. In addition to loan repayment, the city will receive a share of profits from installation of gas let down generators.
The site says the technology can operate with wet or dry steam, geothermal fluids, hot water or dirty gas.
