NEW YORK FIRM ADDS AMERICAN SCOOTER TO ALL-ELECTRIC LINEUP

Miami-based firm offers "high-end" full performance electric scooter

MT. VERNON, New York, December 3, 2004


On December 2, 2004 Electric Transportation Solutions (ETS) of Mt. Vernon, N.Y., and EVT America of Miami signed a distribution agreement that will add EVT scooters, including the high-end EVT America Z20, to the extensive all-electric lineup of the New York firm.

ETS launched a virtual department store of electric vehicles in mid-October. In addition to its website, www.electrictransport.net, ETS offers consulting services aimed at ultimately supplying electric vehicles with power from the wind and sun.

The EVT America Z20 is a North American-built scooter which has a unique hub motor and controller. This patented design and build makes the vehicle unique, durable and attractive.

"EVT America is very excited to have ETS as a premier distributor of all the EVT America products, but particularly the Z20," said EVT America President Fernando Pruna. "While most distributors offer some local representatives, ETS will have distributors nationwide and in the Caribbean to better serve customers. In addition their impressive eCommerce site will give the Z20 superior marketing support and quality service."

"Our company worked tirelessly to make the Z20 the best scooter a customer can buy," added Pruna. "We tested this product vigorously in Canada, and the hub motor and controller designed specifically for the Z20 gives customers a great product that performs in the extremes of winter and summer."

"ETS is very excited to be a nationwide distributor of EVT-America scooters," said Leitman. "Their two and three-wheelers will become a cornerstone in the ETS commitment to pollution and oil-free vehicles."

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Parker KleenVent provides closed-loop solution for wind turbine cooling systems

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
