Southwest Salt Company | Southeastern New Mexico (near Carlsbad)
American Industrial Group developed the pro forma operating budget for a new solar salt project.
The saltwater problems also presented a potential business opportunity. A group of entrepreneurs called on American Industrial Group for the project development phase. AIG initially developed the operating pro formas to evaluate the financial viability of a solar salt plant. The pro forma operating budget laid out the revenues and expenses for the project, including projected cash flows, net revenues and taxes. AIG also prepared the construction estimate and designed the post-harvest bulk material handling system that included mechanical conveyors, screening, drying and compacting equipment for water softening pellets.
