SOBE Thermal to Invest $500M in Mahoning Valley

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio — David Ferro, CEO of SOBE Thermal Energy Systems shares his plans to supply steam used to heat buildings in downtown Youngstown.

“Over the last two and a half to three years, we’ve been fixing the distribution network,” Ferro says. “There were probably twenty leaks in the system in total and every single one of them has been repaired or replaced.”

Ferro says the next step is to replace the old coal boilers with dual purpose boilers that can run on two different forms of energy; natural gas and a synthetic gas which will be produced on site.

Overall, the company plans to invest $500 million between its Lowellville and Youngstown operations.
