LOS ANGELES – VYCON, the designer and manufacturer of high-speed flywheel based, environmentally friendly, energy storage systems, today announced that it was pleased to host Assemblyman Mike Duvall on a tour of the VYCON headquarters and manufacturing facility in Yorba Linda, California on December 4, 2007. The VYCON tour was one in a series the Assemblyman has taken aimed at embracing Southern California companies creating new technologies that will help reduce the environmental burden in the region and around the world.
Assemblyman Duvall is Vice-Chairman of the Assembly Transportation Committee. The committee is responsible for overseeing the many roadway, rail, air and port operations of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and the California Highway Patrol (CHP).
“This is a real solution making a difference right now,” said Assemblyman Duvall. “It’s not just a concept.”
Earlier this month, the Port of Los Angeles awarded funding for three of VYCON’s REGEN flywheel energy systems to be installed in the port. The REGEN retrofits onto cranes used for loading and unloading freight. VYCON’s REGEN systems are currently in use on RTG cranes in ports around the world, including the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
“We are delighted by Assemblyman Duvall’s visit and his interest in the company and its products. In addition to Assemblyman Duvall and his staff, we are in the process of introducing our CARB verified emissions reduction solutions to other government officials and offer our support of their efforts to green California,” said Frank DeLattre, VYCON, Vice President Sales and Marketing. “We are proud to be a California based company involved in helping California’s Green initiatives in the cargo handling industry.”
VYCON is an innovator in the design and manufacturing of technologically advanced flywheel energy storage systems that enable a highly reliable, cost-effective and “Green” energy storage solution for a variety of applications. VYCON’s products are applied in the power quality markets to provide back-up power in mission critical applications and in the energy re-cycling markets for capturing and regenerating energy in crane, electric rail and distributed generation applications.
