LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Robix Alternative Fuels Inc. ("Robix" or the "Corporation") (CSE: RZK)(FRANKFURT: R0X) announced today that it has officially launched its Corris Marine Division with the opening of its Montreal office, in the Old Port of Montreal district.
The Robix Corris Marine Division intends to own and operate shipping tankers that will transport refined oil products along established global shipping routes. In addition to producing shipping revenue, it is intended that each tanker will host a Robix Clean Ocean Vessel ("COV"), which is an oil spill recovery vessel design with the capability to recover oil in rough and debris laden sea conditions, as described below. Once installed on a tanker, the COV will be readily deployable to react to oil spills in the heavily travelled established shipping routes regionally and globally.
Robix, including its Corris Marine Division, has completed comprehensive revenue models and the financial analysis supports the creation of an initial fleet of tankers. Robix is currently in discussions with several tanker owners and the Corporation is evaluating non-dilutive financial structures to acquire these tankers.
The current plan of management of Robix contemplates the installation of a COV when commercially feasible on each tanker. The COV is an ocean vessel, catamaran-hull barge design, capable of recovering oil from water, in virtually any conditions, especially in rough seas (40 Foot COV is stable up to Beaufort 6, or 8 feet ocean waves). Contra-rotating drums lift oil/water fluid from the surface of the ocean and scavenger blades "scrape" the oil/water fluid off the drums into storage tanks within the catamaran hulls.
"Oil spills very often occur near oil pipeline port facilities where oil is off-loaded to tankers and in well-travelled oil shipping lanes, making revenue generating tankers a natural host for the COV system," commented Nathan Hansen, President and CEO of Robix. "Our strategy is to generate revenue from the shipping of oil while being ready and able to service a global region in the event of an oil spill with a readily deployable COV system on standby. Robix has identified revenue potential from multiple sources, including shipping oil, COV standby fees as well as emergency recovery and response revenue from deployment of the COV solution."
In addition to the launch of the Corris Marine Division, Robix wishes to announce the grant, subject to regulatory approval, of 444,000 stock options to directors and consultants at an exercise price of $0.50 per share and expire on May 21, 2017, under the Corporation's stock option plan.
Finally, Robix will be hosting its Annual General & Special Meeting at Radisson Hotel & Conference Center, 6620-36th Street NE, Calgary, Alberta, Canada (Northeast Calgary) on May 30th, 2014. Shareholders and interested persons are invited and encouraged to attend the meeting, which will include an update from management.
The Corporation is an "industrial products/technology" company, offering to investors a unique opportunity to participate in a leading company in the business of ownership of patents, and their development from commercialization to worldwide expansion through various business arrangements. Robix owns a Clean Ocean Vessel ("COV") patent, which is an oil spill recovery vessel design with the capability to recover oil in rough and debris laden sea conditions. Robix has recognized a worldwide market opportunity for effective containment, recovery and disposal equipment, particularly in the oil spill protection industry, and it proposes to develop a business model as a service provider, and/or equipment provider under licensing agreements with other industry participants, wherein Robix will use its COV patented design solution.

Designing IoT applications is complex, but deploying them in a scalable fashion is even more complex. A scalable, API first IaaS cloud is a good start, but in order to understand the various components specific to deploying IoT applications, one needs to understand the architecture of these applications and figure out how to scale these components independently.

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
