UCA to Supply PIPELINE AIR™ to Massive Battery Plant in Southeast


Universal Compressed Air announced it has been selected to design, build, operate and maintain a compressed air station for a massive electric vehicle battery plant in the Southeast.


UCA will provide PIPELINE AIR™ to a large electric vehicle battery plant in the Southeast.

UCA will provide PIPELINE AIR™ as part of one of the largest investments in electric vehicles by an automotive manufacturer in the United States. PIPELINE AIR™, UCA’s performance contracting model, is designed to allow companies to outsource compressed air as a utility, reduce energy and carbon footprint, preserve capital, and focus on their core business. UCA applies a design approach that focuses on the lowest evaluated cost coupled with system reliability, operability, ease of maintenance and constructability.

The campus will produce between 50,000 and 80,000 scfm of high-quality, reliable compressed air with an installed capacity of over 15,000 hp. UCA’s compressed air station will support the production of electric vehicles and advanced lithium-ion batteries.

“We are grateful that UCA can support these critical, strategic electric vehicle initiatives, and this awarded compressed air station business is an extension of the successful relationships UCA built over the last decade,” said Rick Kowey, UCA Executive Vice President and COO.

UCA looks forward to supporting the plant with efficient and reliable compressed air while minimizing its carbon footprint and continuing its commitment to building a sustainable future.
