BURLINGAME, Calif., May 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Environmental Chemical Corporation (ECC) today announced plans to join U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker on a U.S. Department of Commerce Energy Business Development trade mission to West Africa. The delegation will travel to Ghana and Nigeria from May 18-23, 2014. The goal of the mission is to expand opportunities for U.S. companies in the energy sector while addressing a major need to develop increased energy and power generation. As a trade-mission representative, ECC will focus on energy resources and systems, and opportunities to build out power generation, transmission, and distribution.

Presently, seven of the ten fastest-growing economies in the world are in Africa. Yet, more than 600 million people lack access to reliable electricity, including over 85 percent of those living in rural areas. Through high-level meetings with a wide range of government, commercial, economic, industry, and trade representatives, this mission will explore these rapidly growing markets, and facilitate the expansion of U.S. exports in countries like Ghana and Nigeria.

ECC has executed over $88 million in projects in Africa, including the Design-Build and Construction of Power and Infrastructure at JCTF Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti.  In May 2014, ECC West Africa, LLC (a wholly owned subsidiary) was awarded a $58 million contract to provide Design, Development, Construction, and Operation of a Temporary Water Treatment System for the City of Yaounde, Republic of Cameroon, by the Cameroon Water Utilities Corporation (CAMWATER). The project will increase the supply of potable water to the 2.5 million residents of Yaounde where only one third of daily demand is currently met.  ECC is teamed with General Electric (GE) Water & Process Technologies.

"Building on our existing work in Africa, ECC is eager to develop partnerships and opportunities in the growth areas of energy resources and systems, including bringing U.S. technology and financing to bear to improve the quality of life for millions of Africans." said Rick Ebel, Vice President, International Development, who along with Manjiv S. Vohra, President and CEO, will represent ECC in the delegation.
