Taronis Fuels Schedules Delivery of First Gasification Unit to Ankara
Target Delivery Date of April 10th
PHOENIX, AZ, Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taronis Technologies, Inc., (“Taronis” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: TRNX), a sustainability technologies company with patented water decontamination and conservation applications, today announced that its former subsidiary, Taronis Fuels is nearing completion of the first Venturi 50 KW plasma arc gasification unit for delivery to Ankara, Turkey.
Delivery and commissioning of this unit represents the first successful deployment of a Taronis gasification unit into the Republic of Turkey. Taronis is currently scheduling a high-profile ribbon cutting ceremony at their Turkish joint venture facility in Ankara. Prominent government officials, key commercial leaders, and members of the media are expected to attend the event, which will feature a demonstration of the unit in operation, a metal cutting demonstration, and several keynote speakers.
Taronis executed a 50 unit marketing agreement with MC Consulting in December 2019. MC Consulting successfully orchestrated the launch of a large scale joint venture to serve the entire Turkish market for metal cutting fuels. MC Consulting has also played a key role in the proposed ban of acetylene for metal cutting use in Turkey.
MC Consulting has extensive commercial and political ties across the region, and for this reason, Taronis entered into a 13 country joint marketing program to recreate the Turkish joint venture model in multiple markets over the next two years. The total contract covers an initial 50 units at a sales price of $5 million per unit, for a total of $250 million if all units are sold. The initial unit will serve as a marketing platform for prospective buyers and partners in neighboring markets.
“This is a very positive next step in our relationship with MC Consulting and the Turkish government,” commented Scott Mahoney, CEO of Taronis. “Successfully commissioning our gasification unit in Ankara is a critical validation in the process for clearing the delivery of the first five 300 KW Venturi plasma arc gasification units at the end of second quarter 2020.”
“Delivery of this first unit is also key for MC Consulting to begin conducting live demonstrations for senior government officials and industry leaders from a number of neighboring countries. We look forward to seeing our first gasification unit fully operational in Ankara in a few short weeks.”
“This is expected to have a real and tangible impact on Taronis Technologies. The initial sales value of this first unit is $5 million, generating a $350,000 royalty payment back to the Company. More importantly, this enables the full collection of $18.75 million for the five units due to be delivered to Ankara at the end of June. This would generate a further $1.3 million in royalty payments over the next five months. We see this as just the beginning of a scalable royalty stream for many years to come,” concluded Mr. Mahoney.
