PHILADELPHIA, PA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/17/11 -- Early production stage hydrogen generation company AlumiFuel Power, Inc. ('API'), the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania-based wholly owned operating subsidiary of AlumiFuel Power Corporation (OTCBB: AFPW) (the 'Company'), announced today that its unique technology was featured in a presentation to the premier annual U.S. fuel cell conference last week.
On November 2, API's power plant partner and systems integrator, Ingenium Technologies of Rockford, Illinois, presented the current state of development of their Integrated Hybrid Fuel Cell Power System for UUV applications at the annual Fuel Cell Seminar and Exposition in Orlando, Florida. The centerpiece of the presentation was API's dual fuel source technology which combines hydrogen generation along with heat generation -- with both sources providing unmatched energy density feeding fuel cells and turbines to power UUVs. The event was well attended, with a strong Department of Defense, NASA, and Department of Energy presence. In the presentation, Ingenium also mentioned API's Portable Balloon Inflation System (PBIS) technology and products, which provide the engineering baseline for all of API's hydrogen and thermal fuel source applications. Ingenium and API are continuing to pursue US Navy UUV program opportunities.
Ingenium's Director of Programs, Mr. Mike Schneider, who made the presentation, said, 'The presentation was well received and generated a number of questions as well as significant interest. We are very bullish on the capabilities of our hybrid power system, which has been specially designed for UUV applications.'
API's President & CEO, Mr. David Cade, said, 'The Ingenium Hybrid Power System, featuring API's dual fuel source technology, would give UUVs a significant new capability in terms of mission range and duration as compared to current UUV power sources.'
