PowerHouse “Gasification demonstration unit has cleared customs and is at site”

PowerHouse LON:PHE has told DirectorsTalk that the Company's G3-UHt ultra-high 
temperature gasification demonstration unit (the "Unit") has cleared UK customs 
after a seven week journey from Brisbane, Australia, and has been delivered to 
its initial recommissioning site near Manchester. 
 
Work will begin immediately on the recommissioning of the cornerstone of 
PowerHouse Energy's Distributed Modular Gasification© system. Following this, 
the Unit will be delivered to the Thornton Science Park of The University of 
Chester where it will be sited for demonstration purposes. 
 
The Company has finalised its initial two-year office lease at the Energy 
Centre at the Thornton Science Park making it the first official tenant of the 
Centre. PowerHouse will take occupancy on 3 April 2017. 
 
As a first step in the recommissioning process, the Company has appointed the 
engineering firm, Engsolve Ltd ("Engsolve"), to assist in both the 
recommissioning and the complete and thorough engineering validation of the 
Unit's capabilities. 
 
David Ryan, PowerHouse Executive Director of Program Development says of 
Engsolve, "Having reviewed numerous examples of projects on which Engsolve were 
the principal external engineering team, I've had the opportunity to thoroughly 
evaluate their capabilities. They have presented a capable understanding of the 
demands of our G3-UHt Unit and the time demands of the project. Our intention 
is that they will be one of our key partners as we take the unit through the 
development cycle to full commerciality." 
 
Keith Allaun, Executive Chairman of PowerHouse, commented, "This is a momentous 
occasion for the Company. Our team has been focused on the concept of 
Distributed Modular Gasification, with the G3-UHt Unit at the centre of our 
plans to participate in this burgeoning segment of the Waste-to-Energy 
industry, for over two years." 
 
"We now believe we can apply an economical, efficient, and environmentally 
rigorous solution to the waste and energy challenges facing our planet. Having 
spent nearly half a decade experimenting, reviewing, and revising our 
technology and engineering philosophy, we have designed, from first principals, 
the G3-UHt Unit. We believe Distributed Modular Gasification© will allow access 
to an economical, and environmentally sound, solution to land-fill diversion, 
low-cost distributed electrical generation, and distributed hydrogen 
production."
