We at TNT Custom Marine take pride in the products we provide to you. That is why we are a proud Mercury Marine preferred power dealer and recently Mercury showed exactly why we are a partner of theirs.
The world’s leading manufacturer of marine engines and accessories, Mercury Marine is continuing its push to save power while building it for all segments of the recreational powerboat market. In recognition of those efforts, the Fond du Lac, Wis., company was honored last night New Orleans during the Association of Energy Engineers Awards banquet with the organization’s Corporate Energy Management Award.
The banquet was part of the Association of Energy Engineers World Energy Conference and Exposition, which runs through this Friday. In a press release from Mercury Marine, the association dubbed Mercury Marine “an environmental steward, driven by environmentally conscious production and sustainable energy management.”
Mercury Marine president Chris Drees was on hand to accept the honor.
“As a global manufacturer of marine engines and related technologies with more than $3 billion in annual revenue, Mercury takes its energy management very seriously,” Drees said in his acceptance remarks. “Our energy-conserving initiatives are critical in helping us meet both our financial and sustainability goals.
Mercury launched its first solar project in 2017 with the installation of a 2,000-panel array at the company’s European headquarters in Petit Rechain, Belgium. That solar array, combined with improved insulation at the location, reduces the amount of electricity the facility draws from the grid by 33 percent “thus lowering the facility’s utilities costs and enabling substantial use of clean and sustainable energy.”
