We’ve discussed the Cyclone Power Technologies Inc. here before, specifically because of the involvement of Purdue University physicist Dr. Yeong Kim, an LENR researcher who is providing consulting services for the company with regard to the Cyclone Waste Heat Engine that the company is developing. Cyclone Power appointed Dr. Kim because of his LENR interests, and the company hopes their engine could be used with an LENR heat source.
Today Cyclone Power issued a press release announcing that all of its research and development activities were now being transferred from in-house to The Ohio State University’s Center for Automotive Research (CAR).
Here’s an excerpt from the release:
‘Christopher Nelson, President of Cyclone and Managing Director of the company’s Waste Heat division, stated: “We have reached a milestone event for Cyclone and the evolution of our engine technology – a transfer of the physical engine, testing equipment and program management to our engineering partners at CAR . . .
‘Dr. James H. Durand, Director of Testing, Engineering and Software Development Services (TESS) at CAR, stated: “Based on the great progress accomplished in Florida and with Cyclone’s continued support of the program, we are confident that we can advance the Cyclone WHE-DR engine through its remaining steps to commercialization. We have the personnel, experience, expertise and strong desire to complete this project successfully.”‘
This does sound like an important step for Cylcone Power. OSU’s CAR program seems to be extensive and reputable, and it would seem that they would certainly have personnel with expertise there to help with the development of the Cyclone Engine. It will be interesting to learn about the progress of this project — especially if the next milestone involves commercial production of the Cyclone Engine. Andrea Rossi has said he is interested in testing any commercially available product such as this for coupling with an E-Cat.
