Limnion showcases geothermal at IGSHPA

November 7, 2011, Haliburton, ON – Limnion Corporation launched a live feed video demonstration of its LIMA-1 compact geothermal transfer system at the annual International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA) conference in Oklahoma.

The Limnion LIMA-1 is a high performance geothermal transfer system designed for installation in lakes, ponds, rivers and oceans. The system is engineered and manufactured using fluoropolymer tubing and is suitable for both home and commercial applications.

The IGSHPA video feed, which can now be viewed on the company's website, showed the LIMA-1 system at work in the company's Haliburton, Ont., headquarters.


“We were very pleased to launch our 'live' feed from our research and testing facility in Canada,” said Lorne Heise, founder and CEO of Limnion Corporation. “Those that watched the feed were impressed with the opportunity to actually see a system functioning with all the numbers. I was personally impressed with the interest from Japan. It appears Japan has a clear view toward clean energy.”

Until recently, geothermal energy received limited government funding and support in Asia. Since the disastrous 2010 earthquake and tidal wave that severely damaged Japan and its nuclear industry, the Japanese have been exploring alternatives to nuclear power.

Geothermal technology is now attracting a great deal of interest as governments and investors rethink their dependency on nuclear power. Much of the government’s disaster relief funds are now being put towards green technology.

"We are very excited about the future of the Limnion LIMA-1 and the future of geothermal in general. Judging by our success at the IGSHPA Conference and the amazing amount of interest our products generated, especially from the Japanese, we anticipate a very bright future for geothermal at home and abroad,” said Heise.
