STUART, FL--(Marketwired - November 07, 2016) - Ecosphere Technologies, Inc. (OTCQB: ESPH), a technology development and intellectual property licensing company, today announced that its majority- owned subsidiary, Sea of Green Systems, Inc. ("SOGS"), has begun delivery of approximately $1.5M worth of precision, automated growing equipment to its customers operating in the Marijuana industry.
As part of a 17-unit production run, which is made up of a 10-unit order for a licensed medical grower in North Las Vegas, Nevada and a 5-unit order for an equipment sales and leasing company operating throughout the United States, SOGS has now delivered six of its turn-key, state of the art DWC100 growing systems to its Las Vegas customer and expects to ship the remaining four DWC100 units in the coming weeks. In addition, SOGS has completed the manufacturing of one DWC100 unit, three DWC45 units and one VEG50 unit for its equipment-leasing customer and expects to also deliver these units in the coming weeks.
With a wide variety of high-tech growing systems from scalable, frame-mounted units that can be customized with different lighting and automation packages to fully-enclosed, self-contained growing systems, SOGS helps growers automate 100% of the Limiting Factors that contribute to maximizing a crops quality and production. These important parameters include:
- Canopy Temperature (°F)
- Lighting (PAR)
- Humidity (%)
- CO2 (PPM)
- Root Temperature (°F)
- Dissolved Oxygen (DO)
- Electro Conductivity (EC)
- Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)
Manufactured out of aircraft-grade aluminum and capable of being controlled from anywhere in the world from an internet-enabled device, SOGS is bringing automation, control and data-driven analytics to an industry that is striving to create consistent quality and increased plant yields. In addition to its state-of-the-art line of growing equipment, SOGS is also bringing a specialized line of Nutrients and Fertilizers to its customers that are processed using its patented and patent-pending OZONIX® and CAVISONIX® mixing technologies that Ecosphere Technologies, its parent company, has developed. Using this proprietary nutrient mixing technology, SOGS is able to reduce the particle size of nutrients and allow them to work more efficiently in the plant, resulting in exponential growth, increased quality and yields as well as reduced times to harvest - as evidenced by numerous Spring/Summer 2016 Case Study trials in Tomatoes, Blueberries, Watermelons, Commercial Sod/Turf Grass and Legal Marijuana (Indoors & Outdoors).
Corey McGuire, CEO of Sea of Green Systems, stated, "We are excited to start the delivery process of our first production run and are looking forward to introducing these new product lines to the Precision Agriculture industry. After a 2+ year development process, we are well-positioned to bring a wide variety of high-tech growing solutions to our Customers from not only our turn-key growing equipment, but to specialized nutrients and fertilizers, custom soil & media blends, sensors, software and more. This $1.5M equipment delivery is just the start of forging long-term relationships with our Customers, where we can support them throughout their growing life-cycle, not only with equipment and products, but with ongoing Agronomic consulting services and technical support."
Dennis McGuire, Chairman and CEO of Ecosphere Technologies, said, "We are very pleased with the design, engineering and manufacturing process and are equally excited to start shipping units to Customers. We have assembled a world-class team in Sea of Green Systems, which is made up of proven Engineers, Technicians, Agronomists and Plant Soil Scientists and our ability to execute and assist our Customers' needs is evidenced by this initial $1.5M order. Our team at Ecosphere Technologies is continuing to refine the technology, manufacturing process and develop ways to increase plant quality and yields with the least amount of inputs necessary. By optimizing the Limiting Factors of plant cultivation, we are revolutionizing the way crops can be harvested and are just scratching the surface of what will be accomplished in the coming years."
