— Chip Crotty, President of Cocoon
NORTH HAMPTON, NEW HAMPSHIRE, UNITED STATES, August 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cocoon Inc., of North Hampton, NH will provide Marine Force Storage Command (MFSC) in Albany, GA with two 100’ by 500 ’ linked steel-framed fabric structures for a total footprint of 200’ by 500’. The 100,000 sq. ft. building-code-compliant facility will include a dehumidification system capable of maintaining a relative humidity (RH) level of 40% (+/- 5%) to completely protect critical Marine Corps vehicles from corrosion.
Also included is a remote monitoring service that provides real-time alerts and encrypted weekly and monthly reports to ensure the facility stays at optimal RH levels.
“Corrosion continues to be a real challenge for the Department of Defense, costing more than $20 billion annually,” said Cocoon CEO Chip Crotty. “This kind of storage facility is an essential part of cost avoidance, maintaining readiness, and preserving substantial investments in equipment.”
“Over our 40+ year history we’ve seen corrosion-free environments pay for themselves many times over by eliminating corrosion and reducing losses to zero,” said Cocoon COO Ray Gaffey. “Perhaps even more importantly, they keep critical assets at the highest level of readiness.”
Sitework has begun at the U.S. Marine Corps facility, and the building and dehumidification systems are expected to be operational by June 2023.
