Japan Embraces LIMNION Geothermal Technology

LIMNION Corporation, developers of the LIMNION LIMA-1 compact geothermal transfer system, launched a live feed video demonstration of the product at the annual International Ground Source Heat Pump Association Conference in Oklahoma where it was received with great interest, especially by delegates from Japan looking for green alternatives to nuclear power.

Just back from last week’s International Ground Source Heat Pump Association’s (IGSHPA) annual conference in Oklahoma, representatives from LIMNION Corporation (http://www.limnion.com), the Canadian developer and manufacturer of LIMNION LIMA-1, an unique compact and high-tech geothermal transfer system, report a very high level of interest in their geothermal products, especially by the Japanese. During the IGSHPA conference, LIMNION launched a live feed from their company headquarters in central Ontario that demonstrated the LIMNION LIMA-system at work. The live-feed may also be viewed on the company’s website. “We were very pleased to launch our “live” feed from our research and testing facility in Canada,” states Lorne Heise, Founder and CEO of LIMNION Corporation. “Those that watched the feed were impressed with the opportunity to actually see a system functioning with all the numbers. I was personally impressed with the interest from Japan. It appears Japan has a clear view toward clean energy,” explains Heise.

Until recently, geothermal energy has received limited government funding and support in Asia. Since the disastrous 2010 earthquake and tidal wave that severely damaged Japan and its nuclear industry, the Japanese have been exploring alternatives to nuclear power. Geothermal technology is now attracting a great deal of interest as governments and investors rethink their dependency on nuclear power. Much of the government’s disaster relief funds are now being put towards green technology. According to Heise, there are currently just 300 heat pumps in Japan. "Over the next ten years, the market for geothermal products for both residential and commercial applications is expected to explode," says Heise.

Launched a little over a year ago, the LIMNION LIMA-1 has proven to be a tremendously successful product for LIMNION Corporation. Featuring many break-through innovations in geothermal energy transfer technology, the LIMA-1 is a high performance geothermal transfer system designed for installation in lakes, ponds, rivers and oceans. This compact geothermal heating/cooling system is engineered and manufactured using fluoropolymer tubing in a modern and strictly controlled facility. Unlike conventional field built lake loops or mats, the LIMA -1 system has extremely limited impact on ecologically sensitive lake and river bottoms. Suitable for both home and commercial applications, LIMA-1 brings geothermal capability to the forefront, offering consumers green technology that is not directly reliant on fossil fuels.

“We are very excited about the future of the LIMNION LIMA-1 and the future of geothermal in general. Judging by our success at the IGSHPA Conference and the amazing amount of interest our products generated, especially from the Japanese, we anticipate a very bright future for geothermal at home and abroad,” adds Heise.
