Joseph Kinley

Joseph F. Kinley - Special Projects Co-ordinator

Joseph KinleyJoseph was born in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia and was brought up on the family farm. From an early age he began working with his hands and developed a knack for fixing things. As he grew older repairing the farm equipment became just another chore.

With his knowledge of diesel systems operation he took a position as an Apprentice Diesel Mechanic at LIFE in 2003 where he converted truck engines to marine engines and helped to install them in fishing boats.

In 2005 Joseph enrolled as a Maritime Surface and Sub-Surface officer in the Royal Canadian Naval Reserve and finished his training in 2009. He continues to work with the Naval Reserve at his Unit HMCS SCOTIAN, in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Joseph completed his Mechanical Engineering Degree at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, New Brunswick and works full-time with LIFE and ProSolarTec as a Project Engineer.

First Iron Melt

LIFE Prometheus team members were successful in accomplishing their first iron melt using Prometheus solar technology on the 10th of July 2009.  What started as a routine bronze melting procedure using the Beta-Gamma prototype yielded groundbreaking results.  Unbeknownst to team members, while melting the bronze samples, the iron melting ladle became so hot that a portion of the ladle melted away.  This unexpected landmark accomplishment offers further proof of the power of Prometheus technology.
