With the recent grand opening of the first dedicated wind tunnel facility for indoor skydiving in Ontario, Brampton-based MIRUS International is proud to announce its role as supplier of harmonic mitigation and power quality improvement technology for iFLY Toronto. iFLY's wind tunnel generates a unique indoor skydiving experience, where anyone can feel the beauty and freedom of flight.

At more than 4 meters wide, iFLY Toronto is one of the largest and most technically advanced skydive wind tunnel facilities in the world. It features a Canadian power quality technology that prevents and solves harmonics issues that cause electrical current and voltage distortion problems-problems that can lead to electrical inefficiencies and abnormal operations of equipment such as overheating. The LINEATOR also provides such substantial energy savings that iFLY will recuperate the upfront costs of this harmonics filter within six months.

"As a Canadian company, we are especially proud that our products have found their way into a major public installation as close to us and local as iFLY Toronto. There is a special satisfaction in seeing MIRUS International's global acceleration in international markets complemented by growth right in our own backyard," said Tony Hoevenaars, president of MIRUS International.

iFLY Toronto's wind tunnel has in place four 350 horsepower variable frequency drive fans with a 1400 horsepower MIRUS LINEATOR Advanced Universal Harmonic Filter installed to ensure efficient harmonic mitigation. Additionally, MIRUS supplied iFLY with its InSight Power Meter and Alarm Monitor, designed to continuously monitor harmonics in real-time. It communicates to iFLY's operators essential information to let them know that the equipment is operating within safe limits and performing as promised.

"iFLY Toronto's use of the LINEATOR and InSight serves as a great example of MIRUS International's Canadian expertise in power quality finding recognition right here at home, in a unique application for those who want to defy gravity and learn how to fly," said Al Archambault, MIRUS International's director of sales.

iFLY Toronto is the first indoor skydiving simulator of its kind in Ontario and the second to open in Canada, following Montreal. Located at the Oakville Centrum and only 30 minutes from downtown Toronto, iFLY Toronto is expected to attract more than 60,000 visitors in its first year of operations. In addition to iFLY Toronto, MIRUS International also supplies harmonic mitigation to many other Sky Venture LLC's 24 wind tunnels around the world, including SkyVenture Montreal, iFLY Arizona, iFLY Singapore and iFLY Downunder.
