Section 8 – Other Events
Item 8.01. Other Events.
On September 7, 2016, NaturalShimp Incorporated (the “Company”) entered into a Letter of Commitment with Trane, Inc. (“Trane”), a division of Ingersoll-Rand Plc, whereby Trane shall proceed with a detailed audit to use data to verify the capabilities of an initial Phase 1 prototype of a Trane-proposed three tank system at the Company's La Coste, Texas facility. The prototype consists of a modified Electrocoagulation (EC) system for the human grow-out, harvesting and processing of fully mature, antibiotic-free Pacific White Leg shrimp.
Trane is authorized to proceed with such detailed audit to utilize data for purposes of verifying the capabilities of the EC system, including the ammonia and chlorine capture and sequestering and pathogen kill. The detailed audit shall deliver (i) a report on the inspection of the existing infrastructure determining if proper fit, adequate security, acceptable utility service, environmental protection and equipment sizing are achievable; (ii) provide firm fixed pricing for the EC system, electrode selection and supply, waste removal, ventilation of the off-gassing of the equipment; and (iii) a formalized plan for commissioning and on-site investigation of hardware design to simplify build-out of Phase 2 and future phases.
The detailed audit is estimated to require 45 days to attain sufficient data. The results of the detailed audit will be utilized as part of the Company’s financing and underwriting package at the Company's La Coste, Texas facility. Installation of the system will be provided by an outside general contractor and lease financing for the system is to be provided by an outside leasing firm.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
