VYCON, which specialises in green-tech, flywheel energy storage systems, has been awarded California Air Resource Board (CARB) approval for its REGEN energy efficiency and recycling system.

VYCON gains CARB accreditation

In California, the REGEN System is currently installed at the Long Beach Container Terminal and at the ITS terminal in the Port of Long Beach, and at the STS/Evergreen Terminal in the Port of Los Angeles. Additionally, REGEN is installed on RTG cranes at ports in China and Korea.

CARB has verified that the system will reduce diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions by 25–50% while meeting the January 2009 NO2 limit. In addition, the system reduces oxides of nitrogen (NOX) by 30% and CO2 by 25%.

“We have a unique technology that reduces every type of emission produced by crane engine exhausts while improving the crane’s performance and reducing its fuel consumption by up to 35%. We believe that our system is the only RTG crane pollution control technology that generates a meaningful return on investment to the buyer,” said Tony Aoun, president and CEO of VYCON.

VYCON has in the meantime appointed Frank DeLattre as Vice President of Sales and Marketing, UPS & Power Quality Applications. DeLattre, 46, has over 20 years of experience in the power quality and related industries, and joins VYCON from Pentadyne, a Los Angeles-based flywheel company, where he was senior VP of Sales, Marketing and Service.
