Power Tube India Embarks on Joint Venture for Geo Magmatic Power Plants
HOUSTON: Power Tube International has concluded a joint venture partnership with Kuldip Singh, owner of Power Tube India to cover the entire Indian Sub-continent which was selected for its unique geopolitical, ethnic, geographic and historical associations with its neighbors under historical considerations. Singh was selected over 13 other international firms for the JV and will also provide an assembly plant for the Power Tube system.
The Power Tube is a geothermal magmatic driven generator. One 10 megawatt unit can eliminate 400 tons of atmospheric pollution, the equivalent of 1 million gallons of fuel or of 1240 tons of coal. It provides a total non-contamination environment, does not produce acid rain, create landscape eyesores or visual pollution or destroy the fauna or flora.
The Power Tube system has taken almost 11 years to develop and has replaced successfully the usual power generation technology that is over 150 years old. New technology, materials and scientific calculations had to be developed to get Power Tube to where it is today.
Long periods of testing on two prior prototypes, MB 2000 and MB 2002 eliminated any doubts about the technology and innovation developed the knowledge base to assemble, test and certify the commercial prototype, Argus A10.
One Power Tube unit of 10 MW needs only 10×10 meter land, where as other conventional systems need minimum 10 Acres. One 10MW unit needs 3 months to install, others need minimum 3 years to install
For a larger unit, the 10MW Power Tube, the savings to the environment over one year (compared to equivalent hydrocarbon production) would be to eliminate the equivalent of burning 1 million gallons of fossil fuels, 1,450 tons of coal for steam or 400 tons of pollutants into the atmosphere.
Power Tube’s technology will also eliminate the danger of contamination of underground aquifers. It will not contribute to acid rain, prevents global warming and does not use any atomic fuels.
It will provide a higher standard of living in third world countries by providing clean affordable energy that will not devastate the landscape.
The Power Tube system is the logical Solution to curbing vast levels of energy pollution since it does not consume hydrocarbons and so does not generate any pollution or acid rain. The electrical energy does not consume natural resources but comes from a renewable resource and is produced at a low cost. Finally, the equipment leaves a small visual footprint and requires minimum maintenance.
“This new product has the potential to provide a higher standard of living in Third World countries by providing clean affordable energy”, said Singh. “We are eager to start operations in India,” he added after the meeting, “and invite investors to join us.”
Singh has plans to build 4 or 5 assembly plants for the Power Tube in various parts of India as well as separate plants for the drilling equipment. The Indian operations will be headquartered in Chandigarh where Singh already has an IT business, Allied Technology. Singh has several businesses in Houston and has over 40 years of experience as an electrical contractor in India.
Himachal Pradesh is reportedly considering experimenting with Power Tube Technology according to HP chief minister Prem Kumar Dhumal after a recent meeting with the Singh in New Delhi.
He said that the state was also working on solar and wind energy generation technologies and would explore the possibilities of experimentation of Power Tube, low cost, non-polluting and silent power generation system also which could supplement the power demand of the state.
Singh advised Dhumal of the benefits of the Power Tube system and invited him to visit power plant sites in USA. He said that Himachal Pradesh had varied climatic zones and the technology would be of immense benefit to meet the local electricity requirements of consumers.
Singh has also been approached by officials of the Jammu & Kashmir to see the feasibility of beginning operations in the state.
Inderjit Singh CEO of Power Tube India Chandigarh visited Power Tube Houston for the Technical conference. He says that the chief minister of Himachal Pradesh will visit Houston in the third week July for further discussion on installing Power Tubes in India.
