Airworks Compressors Corp Ships World's First Hybrid Powered Air Compressor to Houston

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 26, 2010) - Airworks Compressors Corp, has achieved a milestone in hybrid technology with their new alternative fueled air compressor, the Twister T100 Hybrid unit. The Twister T100 is a 100 CFM self contained, multi-fuel air compressor that provides an alternative for new hybrid fuel vehicles.

Airworks Compressors Corp, an Edmonton, Alberta based business manufactures it own unique environmentally friendly line of mobile truck mounted air compressors. The latest in their line of innovative products, the Twister T100 Hybrid was introduced to Center Point Energy in Houston Texas last week. The Airworks Twister T100 Hybrid air compressor is capable of running on liquid or gaseous fuels at the flick of a switch. Fuels include; gasoline, E85, propane and CNG. The compressor can be configured as a skid mounted, self contained unit but can be easily mounted to the truck chassis and tied into existing fuel sources on the truck.

Center Point Energy is very excited about the Twister T100 Hybrid as it is the first air compressor that they are able to run on CNG. According to Edward Sparks, Manager of Fleet and Shop Services for Center Point Energy "This will be an opportunity for CNP's employees to use and evaluate the first of a kind in the state of Texas. Fleet Operations worked with Equipment Technology (a distributor for Airworks) and Air Works Compressors to develop a CNG fueled compressor and generator unit using some of the most advanced technology in the industry."

Side by side comparison testing shows that the Twister T100 outperforms the existing compressors in the fleet with reduced size and weight, increased air output, decreased sound level, clean fuel options and versatility. Waukesha Taylor, Business Analyst for Center Point Energy states that "Center Point Energy is leading the way in utility fleet technology."

The Twister T100 Hybrid's official launch is at the NTEA's work truck show in St. Louis, March 10-12, 2010.
