CoalSwitch facility in Maine faces construction delay

September 11, 2023  By Canadian Biomass staff


Active Energy’s CoalSwitch manufacturing facility at Ashland, Maine, is facing a construction delay that will push back initial production to November.

The company says the delay is due to missing key components and associated equipment. Active Energy originally expected CoalSwitch production and customer delivery to begin this month.

“The delay in completion of the Ashland Facility is obviously disappointing news for the CoalSwitch program,” Michael Rowan, CEO of Active Energy, said in an investor news update. “Nonetheless, despite the production delay, we continue to be actively engaged with an increasing number of potential customers for CoalSwitch® and the current level of engagement confirms the future commercial opportunities for the fuel.  I look forward to updating shareholders in the announcement of our interim results later in the month.”

Active Energy says its sales team is have active discussions with future CoalSwitch customers around the world.
