Congressman Allen West Visits Firm’s Client Facility

By: Business Wire

Cyclone Power Technologies Inc., developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine, announced that it spent the morning introducing its patented, external combustion engines to Rep. Allen West (FL-22). Cyclone demonstrated the engines’ eco-friendly, multi-fuel technologies, and discussed the viable cost saving opportunities they present for both military and civilian power requirements.

“I’m very impressed with what Cyclone Power Technologies has accomplished – an innovative engine that can advance energy independence and create jobs right here at home,” stated Representative West. “For our armed forces, this technology can support critical missions on land and sea in a manner that strengthens the capabilities and efficiencies of our troops, while also saving the military hundreds of millions of dollars in logistics, replacement costs and support operations.”

The Cyclone Engine is a high-efficiency, modern American steam engine. Its compact, powerful and versatile design can power a variety of applications from solar thermal power plants and waste fuel or waste heat recovery systems, to land and sea transportation for the 21st century. Able to run on any fuel from gasoline and diesel to green alternatives like locally grown bio-fuels, the Cyclone engine can help diversify the energy requirements of both military and civilian power generators and vehicles. This benefit alone could provide major cost-savings on the high price of supplying and supporting troops in forward operations.

“We’re thrilled to have Col. West experience our technology first-hand; understanding and valuing the many benefits it presents for our nation’s future,” stated Cyclone’s CEO, Harry Schoell. “We believe that his leadership in seeking out solutions to strengthen our military’s power capabilities fits perfectly with our vision for Cyclone engines.”
