blutip Power(3) Generates Major Diesel Fuel Savings on CAT XQ400, XQ1250 and XQ2000 for Stationary Gensets

MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 18 /CNW/ - blutip Power Technologies™ ("blutip Power"), a division of Hy-Drive Technologies Ltd. (TSXV: HGS) today released the results of its Combustion Controls testing on two additional Power Generators from the CAT 3500 series family continuing its expansion of the Power3 Program product offering.

blutip's Power's most recent Combustion Controls testing was conducted on the XQ1250 and XQ2000 at Toromont Caterpillar's Innisfil, Ontario facilities.  The CAT 3500 series Power Generators range from 850kW to 2.5MW.

The Combution Controls testing on the stationary gensets has resulted in up to 7% positive fuel optimization on the Caterpillar XQ1250 genset and up to 5% positive fuel optimization on the Caterpillar XQ2000 genset.  Overall test results show that, dependent upon load variables and engine type using current North American diesel fuel costs, direct cost savings of $100,000 to $400,000 per year, are achievable through its Power3 Program.  Full copies of the reports are available on-line at

blutip Power initially announced the launch of its Power3 Program in February, for power generation, following its Power3 Impact Study on the Caterpillar XQ400 genset for the 400kW market.  The testing, which incorporated the use of its Hydrogen Generating System, integrated its Advanced Universal Combustion Controller ("AUC2").  The blutip Power3 product is now available for XQ400, XQ1250 and XQ2000 class of CAT Power Generators and development continues to strengthen and expand its Power3 Program.
