SALEM, Utah--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug. 27, 2003
International Automated Systems Inc. (IAUS.OB) ("IAS") announced today that it has signed an agreement with The Hydrogen Renewable Energy Enterprise, LLC ("THREE") to build the world's first "bladeless" Propulsion Turbine as a demonstration unit for the state of Hawaii. Jack Dean, president of THREE, who has consulted with IAS on the turbine development, will spearhead the demonstration of this breakthrough turbine technology.
THREE is a Hawaiian-based company that has been actively involved in Hawaii's pioneering energy legislation, which encourages use of the islands' renewable energy. Dean, who has spent more than 35 years in the energy industry, is well known in connection with renewable energy production and an author and co-author of several publications covering subjects ranging from steam turbine principles and water induction, to power plant principles for plant operators and engineers.
IAS' new Propulsion Turbine is a breakthrough technology, which some professionals believe will revolutionize electrical power generation. Conservative estimates of the turbine's abilities demonstrate remarkable advantages in areas of cost, maintenance, size, efficiency and versatility over today's expensive conventional turbine under the same conditions.
"There are two unique features that give this turbine an unmatched versatility: its physical construction and its use of multiple-phase fluid," said Dean. "Use of this new Propulsion Turbine technology will offer many cost and energy saving opportunities for the people of Hawaii, and thus, move Hawaii closer to a goal of energy self-sufficiency based upon renewable energy and hydrogen."
Neldon Johnson, president of IAS, said, "Jack Dean has been consulting with IAS on the development of the turbine and continues to be a valuable resource for us as we make low-cost renewable energy a reality. We are excited about our continuing relationship with THREE and Mr. Dean."
