Byrd Announces Selection of National Guard's Eleanor Facility as Site for Army Vehicle Repair Program U.S. Senator Robert C. Byrd. D- WV, has announced that the Army selected the National Guard facility at Eleanor to be one of the service's National Maintenance Program sites. Employees at the Eleanor facility and satellite locations throughout West Virginia will repair a variety of Army vehicle components, which will then be shipped to Army units around the world. The program results in tre- mendous savings for the Army by repairing vehicle parts, rather than purchasing new ones. "Establishing a long-term partner- ship with the Army through this new program will create significant eco- nomic development opportunities for the National Guard." Byrd said. 'Tm so pleased that I could help the Na- tional Guard add more to the Army maintenance projects already underway at Eleanor." Byrd, who is the senior member of the Senate Appropriations Commit- tee, secured more than $22 million for construction of the Eleanor complex. The site includes a Controlled Hu- midity Preservation Facility for stor- age of Army tanks and a state-of-the- art maintenance complex. Since the facility's completion in 2004. the National Guard has entered into/com- pleted contracts to rebuild Army equipment. Maintenance projects currently under';vay include genera- tor reset; toolkit rebuild; HUMVEE rebuild, etc. "Senator Byrd has been a partner with us since the late 1990s on the development of the Eleanor facility," said Adjutant General Allen Tackett. "Because of his support, the National Guard has been able to create oppor- tunities for West Virginians to have an impact on national-level military programs while keeping their fami- lies here in West Virginia, and we couldn' t have achieved that goal with- out Senator Byrd's unwavering sup- port." "The National Guard has already been awarded four new contracts un- der,the National Maintenance Pro- gram agreement." Byrd said. "Guard employees will repair tire assemblies on HUMVEEs, 5-ton and 10-ton trucks, and other tactical vehicles, which represent the majority of Army cargo hauling capability." "West Virginia was chosen for this program due to the Guard's outstand- ing facilities, proven workforce, and recently-received ISO 9000 certifica- tion, which places the Guard's main- tenance facilities on par with othe? major manufacturing plants," said Byrd. $12 Million Investment to Create New Jobs in Marion Co. AOP Clearwater, LLC has chosen West Virginia as the location for its first water recycling plant in the Ap- palachian Basin. The joint announce- ment was made by Gov. Joe Manchin and Louis Bonasso, President of AOP Clearwater LLC (AOPC). The new facility is located in Marion County and is scheduled to open in July of this year. This effort represents an initial investment of at least $12 million. The AOPC Plant will create ten new full-time jobs, including plant manager, mechanics and shift techni- cians. Additionally, the new facility will utilize local firms for engineer- ing, equipment, construction and con- struction management. "We are truly pleased that AOP Clearwater chose to locate in West Virginia," said Gov. Joe Manchin. "We look forward toward working with Mr. Bonasso to make this an- nouncement the beginning of a great partnership for both the company and the state." "AOP Clearwater is proud to an- nounce the first of its kind water recy- cling facility," Bonasso said. "The current and future exploration of the Marcellus Shale by the oil & gas industry in West Virginia and through- out the AppalaChian Basin requires new and responsible solutions for the water-management issues created by this exploration activity. We are pleased to be a part of the solution for water stewardship as the oil and gas industry develops this new producing horizon." AOP Clearwater is a new company providing water recycling services. Through its affiliated companies, AOPC has a long history of providing service to the oil and gas ifidustry in West Virginia and throughout the Appalachian Basin: Legislative Committee Chairs and Vice Chairs Appointed As the 2009 regular legislative ses- sion approaches. House Speaker Ri- chard Thompson is in the process of organizing the committee member- ship. and has appointed the chairs and vice chairs of a number of commit- tees.
