Dresser-Rand Awarded LEED Certification

Posted on November 12, 2009

Dresser-Rand Group Inc. announced that its new Technology Center in Olean, N.Y., has been awarded LEED Gold certification as established by the U.S. Green Building Council and verified by the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI). LEED is the nation's preeminent program for the design, construction and operation of high performance "green" buildings.

"This is just one example of Dresser-Rand bringing energy and the environment into harmony," said Jerry Walker, vice president and general manager of North American Operations. "We've developed a complete range of product offerings to help other facilities operate more efficiently, reduce greenhouse emissions, and convert waste heat and other materials to energy, among other benefits. Achieving LEED certification for our new technology center demonstrates our commitment to greener, more environmentally friendly operations, in addition to making higher efficiency products that minimize carbon and other toxic emissions."

Dresser-Rand achieved LEED certification for energy use, lighting, water and material use as well as incorporating a variety of other sustainable strategies. By using less energy and water, LEED certified buildings save money for families, businesses and taxpayers; reduce greenhouse gas emissions; and contribute to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the larger community.

"Buildings are a prime example of how human systems integrate with natural systems," said Rick Fedrizzi, president, chief executive officer & founding chair, U.S. Green Building Council. "The Dresser-Rand Technology Center efficiently uses our natural resources and makes an immediate, positive impact on our planet, which will tremendously benefit future generations to come."
