    infinia gets DOD grant for solar hot water/electricity

    Kennewick company included in defense bill
    By the Herald staff

    Kennewick's Infinia Corp. will get $2.4 million from the federal government to develop a small, solar-powered engine to simultaneously produce hot water and electricity for soldiers in the field, it was announced Saturday.

    The funding for Infinia and various other Department of Defense projects will provide a critical boost to the economy and make a strong investment in research, technology and innovation in the state, said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.

    Infinia is expected to develop a field demonstration unit of the 2-kilowatt Stirling Tactical Cogeneration System by 2011, according to Infinia. The system is expected to improve conditions in the field for troops and allow them to generate hot water and electricity reliably, efficiently and quietly.

    Murray, a senior member of the Senate Defense Appropriations Committee, included $73 million in the final version of the Fiscal Year 2010 Defense Appropriations bill for Washington projects.

    "This spending will create good jobs in Washington state and help our armed forces get the cutting-edge military equipment they need and deserve," Murray said in a statement.

    The $626 billion defense bill passed the Senate by a vote of 88-10 and is expected to be signed into law soon by President Obama.

      • LOL, do they still have any staff in calif?
        from their 10q

        The gross losses on the Valley Center, Fresno Airport and Denver Airport were the result of revised cost under-estimates (in compliance with SOP 81-1) The Windsor gross loss represents unrecoverable costs incurred by the Company in connection with a contract to construct a 783 kilowatt solar power generating system. The Company terminated this contract in accordance with its terms due to its inability to obtain acceptable financing. After many months of effort on the part of the Company, financing for this project, with terms acceptable to the Company, was not achieved and the financing contingency of the agreement was invoked. The $1,515,000 represents project costs incurred in anticipation of the financing being secured, and costs associated with the contract termination, including the satisfactory resolution of all customer and supplier claims.
