TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- dynaCERT Inc. (TSX VENTURE: DYA) ("dynaCERT" or the "Corporation") provides the following updates:
Testing and Data Sharing Agreements TTSI
As announced in the press release dated April 15th, 2014, the Corporation had provided and assisted in the installation of a HydraGen unit on a 2003 Peterbuilt Class 8 truck through Total Transportation Services Inc. ("TTSI") headquartered in Rancho Dominguez, California. After four months of on-going testing and data collection, TTSI has satisfied itself with respect to its analysis of fuel savings and is currently waiting for testing by an accredited, 3rd party testing facility to validate reduced toxicity of emissions.
Caribbean Pilot Project
dynaCERT announces that it has concluded phase 1 testing of the pilot project of the HydraGen technology with a stationary power generator in the Caribbean.
Phase 1 objective was testing and data collection that measures the performance characteristics of a
9R32 Wartsila generator with the induction of hydrogen and oxygen at varying concentrations, compared to baseline performance.
All the base line and testing data relating to fuel consumption and engine emission profile,completed by GSA-Lab a chemical and environmental lab based in the Dominican Republic, have now been received and are being evaluated by dynaCERT staff and two additional independent engineers, collectively. A full report defining fuel and toxic gas reductions is being compiled and will be forwarded to all related parties in the Caribbean for review. Updates concerning next phases will be announced upon approval.
Acquisition of Technology
As announced on February 28, 2014, dynaCERT Inc. executed a Letter of Intent to acquire ownership of the technology that underlies its principal product, the HydraGen. At present, the Corporation has an exclusive unrestricted, worldwide license to manufacture and market the Technology, in respect of which it pays a royalty fee of 6% of the net invoice price of such product sales. Under the LOI, the Corporation will acquire the Technology (including all patents, patents pending, intellectual property, etc.) for a purchase price of $750,000. The foregoing price shall be paid out of the sales of HydraGen units, with 50% of the profits from such sales being paid to the vendor and attributed to the purchase price.
The LOI is non-binding and is subject to being superseded by a formal purchase and sale agreement, which is expected to be executed and closed next quarter.
Appointments to Advisory Board
dynaCERT is pleased to announce the appointments of Dean Ross and Gerald Solensky Sr to its Advisory Board.
Mr. Ross is a retired Mechanical Engineer (University of Toronto) with 30+ year experience as Project Manager and Manager of mechanical engineering, mining and metallurgical consultants. Mr. Ross brings years of experience working with large diesel generators throughout northern Canada to optimize both fuel efficiencies and toxic gas reductions, as well as serving as Chairman of Hope Township LLRW ad hoc Committee and in the Hope Township Environmental Advisory Committee.
Mr. Solensky has been a professional engineer in structural mechanics, mechanical engineering and strategic planning/development of R&D programs for almost 40 years. Over that period of time, he has been intimately involved in a wide range of manufacturing programs, including but not limited to projects in the automotive sector. More specifically, he has been involved in such R&D programs as the Stealth Program for Northrop Technologies.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
