Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company’s Cheswick, PA-based EMD business unit has been awarded a USD$25,000 grant from the United States Department of Energy (DOE) sponsored Pennsylvania Technical Assistance Program. The grant was awarded to support the company’s efforts to become ISO 50001 certified for excellence in energy management.
EMD was selected to participate in the Pennsylvania Superior Energy Performance Demonstration project in May and applied for a grant through the new DOE-sponsored program which is administered through Pennsylvania State University. Through the award, EMD will receive training and other support to implement an energy management program that conforms to ISO 50001. It will take about 18 months to achieve ISO standard certification and assessment. Only 35 companies in the United States have been chosen to participate in the certification program.
Senior VP & GM of the Electro-Mechanical Systems Division of Curtiss-Wright Flow Control Company, Greg Hempfling said, “We are honored to be selected as a member of this elite group and look forward to applying energy management best practices throughout all of our businesses.”
