Alternate Energy Holdings
(PublicWire.com Press Release) — Alternate Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: AEHI) today announced that its subsidiary AEHI China signed an agreement to work with Dalian Shipbuilding and Equipment Manufacturing Company, Ltd. (“DSIC EM”), a subsidiary of China National Nuclear Corporation (“CNNC”), to qualify and market various large-sized manufacturing components for use in the international energy industry. These components include but are not limited to nuclear reactor containment liners, desalination units, pressure vessels, storage tanks and offshore wind power equipment.
Don Gillispie, AEHI Chairman and CEO, said, “For over 20 years, the Chinese have built and successfully deployed large-scale industrial energy components for domestic power projects and have now obtained the necessary international qualifications, setting the stage to compete effectively in the global energy equipment market. AEHI began work in China several years ago, encouraging and assisting Chinese manufacturers such as DSIC to meet western engineering and quality standards. Chinese involvement in this industry will help to reduce the cost of large-scale energy components while meeting the highest standards. Similar to other industries in which the Chinese have been involved, lower costs will improve the overall economics of large-scale power production, including nuclear power, as well as needed desalinization projects globally. The nuclear industry is gaining widespread acceptance as the preferred and most viable solution for meeting growing global demand for base load power in an environmentally friendly manner, and we are excited to be a part of this resurgence. We are very pleased to have reached this agreement with DSIC EM, and we look forward to assisting DSIC EM in introducing their industrial energy manufacturing components to the world.”
