Dr. Cameron Davies, Chairman of Powerhouse Energy PLC, said

“2018 was a breakthrough year for the development of Powerhouse Energy and our Distributed Modular Technology application, our research and engineering design efforts resulted in the finalisation of the commercial design for the DMG process. This design was then independently validated from a safety, technical and operational perspective by internationally recognized risk management company DNV GL.

The interest from potential customers has been overwhelming, culminating in the recent announcement that a customer will install the first DMG process plant at the Protos Energy Park in the coming months. The operation of the DMG on our first sites will be the enabler to allow us to convert our strong proposal pipeline into actual sales for future revenues and ultimate profitability”.
