CELEBRATION, FL--(Marketwire - December 30, 2008) - International Power Group, Ltd. (OTCBB: IPWG) today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a plan to locate the Company's AddPower low temperature turbine waste-heat-to-energy technology into a wholly owned Nevada Corporation subsidiary.

More details of our restructuring plan will be announced in the near future, and we thank our shareholders for their continued and unwavering support."
