ALBUQUERQUE, NM–(Marketwired – Dec 7, 2015) – Enerpulse Technologies (OTCQB: ENPT) announced today that its Technical Sales Specialist, Andrew Moser, will be attending this year’s Power-Gen International Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada from December 8th to the 10th. Moser will be meeting with close to fifty targeted customers in the global power-generation market.
Enerpulse Technologies recently announced successful laboratory testing of its NMH2L plasma spark plug, designed for large stationary natural gas fueled industrial engines. The company has begun field testing this model with several large industrial engine operators. Once validated, the NMH2L will be added to Enerpulse’s catalog of existing Pulstar plasma spark plugs specifically designed for natural gas fueled industrial engines. At the conference, Moser will share the positive preliminary test results gathered from Enerpulse’s active field testing which is set for completion in first quarter 2016.
According to Power Systems Research, there were 224,000 industrial alternative fuel engines in operation in 2013. That is expected to expand to 890,000 engines by 2019, representing a Compounding Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 25.85% for the global industrial alternative fuels market. Using these numbers, Enerpulse Technologies estimates total available market (TAM) for their Pulstar Natural Gas spark plug line of nearly $180mm in 2016 which doubles to nearly $360mm over the next three years. Due to the extraordinary engine performance benefits delivered by Enerpulse’s plasma spark plug technology, the company expects to capture a large portion of this market with commercial sales beginning in first quarter 2016.
Enerpulse expects commercial sales begin in first quarter 2016, following successful field trails. Revenue ramp-up is expected to follow through 2016 and beyond. The smallest engine operator currently in field testing represents potential sales of $1.5 million annually.
According to Lou Camilli, Chief Technology Officer and President of Enerpulse Technologies, “We are seeing positive results in operating efficiency, fuel economy gains and reduced emissions delivered by Pulstar’s plasma-assisted combustion technology. We are excited to share these preliminary test results and are confident they will be received as an exciting opportunity for these potential customers.”
About Pulstar Spark Plugs
Pulstar Spark Plugs use an internal capacitor to create an intense nano-second burst of energy upon spark formation, saturating the fuel with combustion enhancing plasma. The ability to produce large amounts of highly-reactive plasma allows Pulstar Spark Plugs to improve ignition and combustion of fuels with high flash-points such as natural gas. Testing of existing Pulstar Spark Plug models in various natural gas fueled engines has shown fuel efficiency gains of up to 2.8%, emissions reduction of up to 8% and have increased stability by improving Coefficient of Variation of Indicated Mean Effective Pressure (CoV of IMEP) by up to 17%.
