$6 Million Offer Installed 100,000 Ton Biodiesel Facility
IPT recently sent out a press release offering to install a 100KT/Y biodiesel facility on a permitted and prepared site for $6 million. The offer is given with the understanding that the buyer has all his financial obligations in place and that they are ready to sign off on the purchase price, that the site engineering is done and that permits are either in hand or in the works, that the land for the site is in control of the buyer and that fabrication of the unit can start immediately.
It will take between 6 to 8 months to produce the equipment; this means that all things being equal, paying the first installment will ensure that once all the details are finalized, the equipment will be delivered to the site. It takes planning and it takes time, but IPT will help a buyer through the installation process only after the contract is signed.
