Highline Technical Innovations, Inc. Teams Up with HTI Dealer SmartPower in Annual Agriculture Exhibitions Shows in New York and Pennsylvania
FARMINGTON, Ark., Sept. 1, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Highline Technical Innovations, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HLNT), in a continued effort to cultivate the Agriculture and Transportation industries of the Northeast, recently supported SmartPower Technologies in two agricultural exhibitions. The Empire Days Agriculture show was held in Seneca, New York, August 8-11 and a second show, AG Process, was held on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania August 16-18. Approximately 100,000 visitors were exposed to the Wildcat Hydrogen Booster. In support of the shows, HTI provided its 400 horse power Cummins diesel demonstration trailer accompanied by HTI senior sales representative, Mike Feemster. HTI performed over 135 demonstrations during the two shows with a 100% success rate showing over an 18% improvement in fuel economy. Although significant rain inundated the first few days of the Empire Days Agriculture show, SmartPower completed daily installations of the Wildcat system and compiled a list of several hundred leads over the course of the two shows. SmartPower began introducing the Wildcat System in the areas through popular regional publications including the Country Folks and Lancaster Farming publications complementing HTI’s advertising with nationally known Five Star Publications that can be found throughout the Northeast.
HTI reported that dealers such as SmartPower Technologies locations in NJ, NY, PA and FL and HYDRO-GEN, LLC based in Rhode Island are strategically positioned in growth markets that HTI anticipates will have a significant impact on revenue streams for the company. Gary Olson, president of SmartPower Technologies said of the shows, “We have several very large companies with significant size fleets of trucks, cars, stationary equipment, farm tractors and OTR’s. We are confident we will achieve significant sales from the leads. We have already secured installations for the Wildcat 9000′s being scheduled within the next 30 days. The companies range from agriculture, to transportation, recycling and even forestry applications. We now have completed 30 days of testing on a Morbark 7600 chipper with a 1050 HP Cummins at a prominent recycle center. Using dual Wildcat 9000′s we are proving consistent fuel savings of over 5 gallons of diesel PER HOUR, lowering the hourly consumption from 27.2 GPH down to as low as 18.4 GPH at times, depending on loads. Consistent reductions are averaging over 18%, and the recent emissions testing using an Enerac 700 have proved overall reductions of 40-50% on 5 harmful gas emissions.”
Over the preceding months, SmartPower also engaged the Penn State Agriculture Department which boasts a state-of-the-art engine diagnostic facility and has shown a willingness to discuss measurement and verification testing for the Wildcat for increasing MPG, HP and torque, and also measure the reductions in harmful emissions. Gary Olson with SmartPower has been diligently working with the school’s Agriculture department in starting the testing process with meetings tentatively scheduled for September to tour the diagnostic facility.
HTI, who is recognized as a leader in hydrogen supplemental technology is best known for its Wildcat Hydrogen Booster, a supplemental fuel system that increases fuel efficiency in internal combustion engines, both diesel and gas, in applications such as cars, boats, tractor-trailer rigs and agriculture and industrial equipment, with a strong emphasis on the Agriculture and Transportations markets. In a recent article in Logistics Management, it was reported that the ATA supports a recent memorandum by President Barrack Obama increasing the fuel economy of the American transportation industry by 2014. President Obama stated, “”The nation that leads in the clean energy economy will lead the global economy. I want America to be that nation.” The memorandum presents significant challenges to trucking and transportation firms across America. “HTI sees a significant opportunity to capitalize on this change in policy”, said CEO Charlton Coats.
