10 CONNECTICUT GREEN GUIDE • WINTER 2015 www.CTGreenGuide.com facility in Windsor when it was owned by the Swiss conglomerate ABB Group. After Alstom purchased the power division from ABB in 2001, the lab remained at that facility until November 2013 when ABB asked it to leave so it could develop the site into the mixed used residential development Great Pond Village. The move to the Bloomfield facil- ity was painstaking and took nearly two years as all the testing equip- ment had to be carefully marked, transported and reassembled after the short drive, Pereira said. The company held the in- auguration to let the Depart- ment of Energy and its other partners know its services were back in full swing. The event was attended by Assistant Secretary Christopher Smith of the U.S. Department of Energy, Alstom President Amy Ericson and Com- missioner Catherine Smith of the Connecticut Department of Eco- nomic & Community Development. "The inauguration was the culmination of everything we put into that move," said Carl Edberg, Alstom manager of boiler testing and validation in Bloomfield.
