Astonishing Power

Astonishing Power

Lunenburg Foundry & Engineering Ltd’s active scientific research program has recently developed a solar furnace system that allows the company to melt metal with solar power alone. The company has succeeded in melting the first solar castings in North America. "The power of the system is in its simplicity." The simple method is rooted in an even simpler construction. This novel method allows for cost efficient construction of solar concentrating systems of any scale and can be retrofitted to many current industrial processes. The benefits are that practically any energy intensive process can be driven by this concentrating system - without producing greenhouse gases. The technology is under development and is aggressively protected by patent lawyers on a worldwide basis.

Beta Gamma Runs Steam Engine - 2 August 2009

The Beta Gamma Prototype of the Kinley Dual Mirror System was successful in producing steam that ran a small Steam Engine on the 2nd of August 2009. The Prometheus Team had set out to test a new receiver that was developed to produce steam at greater efficiency. It wasn't long after the Sun's rays hit the receiver that steam came rushing out the discharge. Connecting the steam line to a model steam engine the Team showed how easy mechanical energy could be created using the Prometheus Technology.
