India Tour with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau
Mr. Robert Maier, COO of dynaCERT, represented the Company at the special dinner in New Delhi held in honour of Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau on Thursday, February 22, 2018, and has had numerous meetings with official groups and companies in India that expressed interest in the Company’s HydraGEN™ Technology, including the several offices of the India Central Government, the Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Environment as well as City of Delhi officials. Discussions were mainly focused on India’s keen interest in the environmental benefits of the technology. Other talks included senior representatives from The All India Motor Transport Congress (“AIMTC”), who had been hosted by dynaCERT in Toronto in November 2017 (see Press Releases dated November 2, 2017 and December 4, 2017) and Ashok Leyland Ltd. (“ALL”), which manufactures in India a wide range of equipment using diesel engines.
Ashok Leyland Ltd.
Ashok Leyland Limited, a company located in Gurgaon, India, is an Original Equipment Manufacturer of diesel-powered vehicles for the South Asia marketplace with sales and service offices in strategic locations throughout the region. ALL sells over 400,000 vehicles per year. Ashok Leyland operates in India and also exports to South Asia, Middle East and African nations. dynaCERT has followed up with senior officials of Ashok Leyland and is furthering its relationship with the company.
All India Motor Transport Congress
The All India Motor Transport Congress also hosted dynaCERT COO, Mr. Robert Maier, in New Delhi on Mr. Maier’s trip to India. It was agreed that a grand launch of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology in India will be organized by the AIMTC as part of their upcoming National Conference to be held in New Delhi in April 2018 and will include the Minister and senior officials of the Transport Ministry of India, OEM’s based in India and other dignitaries of the road transportation industry of India. AIMTC members operate approximately 10,000,000 diesel powered trucks and buses across India. Of those members, the AIMTC has indicated that approximately 1.4 million trucks have a National Permit in India and move across the nation. It is estimated that those trucks could potentially benefit most from dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology.
Automotive Research Association of India
The Automotive Research Association of India (“ARAI”), is testing dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology under local road conditions in India. The ARAI is the co-operative industrial research association of the automotive industry with the Government of India, Ministry of Industries. Subject to receipt of a positive report of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology by ARAI, the AIMTC has indicated that it would be prepared to recommend the use of the technology to its members.
As stated in a letter addressed to dynaCERT, dated February 22, 2018 and signed by both President S.K. Mittal and Chairman Kultaran Singh Atwal of the All India Motor Transport Congress:
“The ongoing enthusiasm only hinges around the positive report from ARAI meeting the challenges of the Indian trucking conditions. AIMTC, then will recommend, HydraGEN™ Technology to its members accordingly for common good. Initially a tentative demand of 10,000 units could be expected that our members may order from dynaCERT Inc directly to suit their particular engine needs.”
“We have been also told by officials of Ashok Leyland Ltd. that they agree in principle to place a bulk order, subject to the report from ARAI. In closing we are sure that AIMTC and dynaCERT have paved a strong foundation to build a synergistic association for times to come.”
Robert Maier states: “We are very excited about the progress that we have made in our ongoing meetings, discussions and dialogue with groups and companies in India. Diesel engines which cause insufferable air pollution are a large part of everyday life in personal transport, commodity transport, intercity movement of people in India, and, for a large part of the community electrical power which requires stationary diesel generators. Indian officials that we have met with have been very receptive to the environmental benefits of the HydraGEN™ systems. We look forward to helping clean the environment with them.”
