Xebec Adsorption Inc. (Xebec) has acquired Colorado-based UECompression (UEC), a designer and builder of custom air and gas compressor solutions for power generation, industrial, and energy applications.
Headquartered in Québec, Canada, Xebec is a global provider of clean energy solutions for renewable and low-carbon gases used in energy, mobility, and industrial applications. The company specializes in deploying a portfolio of proprietary technologies for the distributed production of hydrogen, renewable natural gas (RNG), oxygen, and nitrogen.
The acquisition of UEC expands Xebec’s production capacity for standardized RNG systems and adds six states to its service network (Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Nebraska), increasing local service and support as the demand for standardized RNG and hydrogen systems accelerates.
Xebec expects that, with limited changes to operations, it can use UEC’s excess capacity to produce approximately 150 to 190 containerized BGX Biostream biogas upgrading and Hy.GEN hydrogen units per year in North America.
“With this acquisition, we are responding to the accelerating energy transition and the associated interest in containerized RNG and hydrogen systems,” said Kurt Sorschak, chair, president, and CEO of Xebec. “Furthermore, UEC’s existing compression expertise in hydrogen will become increasingly relevant as the hydrogen economy develops. The acquisition will also help us in fully complying with current and evolving needs for local sourcing.”
