On May 2018, on behalf of the “Unión Nacional de Jatropha en México”, nine representatives from Mexico’s farming, banking, and government sectors flew to Fort Collins, Colorado for a successful live demonstration of CoolTech’s innovative generator-equipped truck. “As we had hoped, our guests were impressed with the capabilities of the system,” said Timothy Hassett, Chairman and CEO of Cool Technologies. “And as a result, the demonstration will lead directly to more than $20 million worth of new orders and rapidly increasing production.”
The company’s demonstration was held on May 4 and will speed the production and delivery of generator-equipped trucks to Mexico, changing the lives of farmers and other workers.
Cool Technologies is an intellectual property and product development company commercializing patented thermal dispersion technology across multiple platforms. The Company has additional patents-pending for various OEM applications of its proprietary heat removal technologies for fans, bearings, clutches and wet or dry brakes. Tested and validated by third parties including ESSCO Pumps, Nidec Corporation, and Mohler Technology, the Company’s cooling system eliminates the need for costly modifications while increasing power output of pumps, compressors, batteries, motors and generators by up to 40% when compared to existing technologies.
Tim Hassett, said that: Even more important, the trucks have the potential to transform lives of farmers. “Farmers will have power whenever and wherever they need it,” he said. “Businesses can develop, build or extract resources far from the electrical grid. And communities will be able to more easily respond to disasters, emergencies, and power outages.”
The company’s demonstration was held on May 4 and will speed the production and delivery of generator-equipped trucks to Mexico, bringing in millions of dollars in new orders and changing the lives of farmers and other workers.
The observers included the president of the National Chamber of Commerce of Mexico, the General Secretary of the Association of Industrial Engineers of the Yucatan Peninsula, the Delegate of the Euro-Latin American Network of Women in Mexico, a representative of the State Procurator’s Office for the Protection of the Environment for the State of Veracruz, as well as an intermediary between agricultural producers and banks or public trusts which grant credit, guarantees, training, technical assistance and technology transfer to the agricultural sector of the country.
The Mexican officials were able to see CoolTech’s generator-equipped Ford F-350 truck in action. In strong contrast to standard heavy, unwieldy tow-behind generators. The CoolTech truck is a lightweight system that uses a truck’s own engine to power the generator. “Anywhere you can drive a truck, you can have power,” explained Tim Hassett.
The demonstration showcased the capabilities and ease of operation of the system. CoolTech showed how an operator is able to control the generator from the comfort and safety of the truck’s cab using a Panasonic Toughpad. The company also demonstrated using the electricity from the truck to power a screw compressor, an industrial fan, and an industrial load bank. And it discussed additional capabilities, such as purifying water and operating seamlessly with batteries and solar power to make operations more sustainable and environmentally friendly.
The demonstration took place in Fort Collins, Colorado at Czero, Inc, a mechanical engineering firm located at the Powerhouse Energy Campus of Colorado State University’s Energy Institute.
This is one of the first actions in Mexico and the United States, that CEFIAL MX is carrying out, coordinating actions and implementing projects with different Institutions and Organizations.
