POMPANO BEACH, FL, August 14, 2013. Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. (OTCQB: CYPW), developer of the all-fuel, clean-tech Cyclone Engine, announced today that CycloneWHE LLC, its waste-to-power operating subsidiary, has received letters of interest to purchase the first 300 beta prototype Waste Heat Engines (WHE-25) from several of its current customers and technology partners.
The interest for Cyclone’s 10hp, compact WHE-25 model waste heat engine comes from Phoenix Power Group for their waste motor oil furnace, B&W Constructors for its animal waste methane flare systems, and Clean Carbon for solid biomass and bio-char projects in Australia and the greater Pacific region.
The WHE-25, through external heat sources such as these systems, is capable of converting raw heat to mechanical power to run electric generators, pumps and other machinery.
Christopher Nelson, President of Cyclone and Managing Director of Cyclone-WHE, commented:
“This strong initial interest from our current customers to purchase the first 300 manufactured WHE-25 engines over the 12 month period following their public launch, helps us solidify our production plans and requirements over the next six months. If our development continues to progress at the current pace and we can demonstrate attractive price points moving forward, we expect these letters of interest to transfer into solid purchase orders by the fourth quarter of this year. At that time, we will also begin accepting advance orders from other customers with numerous waste-to-power applications.”
Thomas Thillen, President of Phoenix Power Group, stated:
We have seen some real progress on the development of the WHE with the assistance of Ohio State University and Precision CNC, to the level where we believe we will soon be able to commence our pilot programs. We continue to have great demand from our customers to bring a product to market that will cost effectively convert waste oil to power at a ‘point-of-need’ format. We’re excited to keep this project moving forward.
Greg Butler, Executive Director of Clean Carbon affirmed that interest in the WHE-25 was strong: “Our potential customers want a reliable waste-heat to power solution for their biomass pyrolysis technologies and we look forward to fulfilling the market demand in conjunction with
