IAS announces commercial readiness with Fresnel Solar Lens and Bladeless Steam Turbine system

After years of postponed starts, tweaking their super-efficient and cost-effective system, IAS has completed its third party testing and is now ready to go commercial, announcing a partnership with REDCO.

International Automated Systems, Inc. (IAS : IAUS.PK) and Renewable Energy Development Corporation (REDCO) announced today that REDCO will be working with IAS to purchase IAS’s solar panels and new bladeless turbine for utility-scale solar projects.

After completing its due diligence of the IAS technology that included a thorough analysis of the independent engineering review of IAS’s new solar panels and turbine, REDCO has concluded that the IAS technology is commercially viable. 

The third party engineering review was conducted by reputable engineers with Ph.D. and M.S. degrees in Physics, Mechanical Engineering and Nuclear Engineering from prestigious Universities such as M.I.T., U.C. Berkley, U.C. Davis, and DePaul. Collectively, these scientists have many years of accumulated specialized expertise in optical engineering and efficiency, thermal dynamics, combustion stability, liquid rocket engine performance, system optimization, mechanical and fluid systems analysis, solid and gel propellant performance, structural dynamics, rotating machinery and vibration with application to turbine blade rubbing. This review supports that the IAS bladeless turbine and solar panels meet and in some cases exceed all performance and efficiency projections. Perhaps the most telling outcome of this independent engineering review was the conclusion that the IAS bladeless steam turbine can operate as a part of an overall closed loop system or as a stand-alone component. 

The composite analysis also supports that compared to other solar technologies the IAS technology has a higher overall annual efficiency factor than photovoltaic (PV), traditional concentrated solar power (CSP) such as towers and troughs, and is better or comparable to CSP dish technology. The net conclusion is that based on the functionality and the low-cost design, an IAS solar thermal power plant needs to convert only 5% of the gross annual solar energy hitting its panels to electricity in order to compete with the lowest priced solar technology available today. An IAS solar thermal power plant has an annual solar-to-electric efficiency of nearly 24%. 

IAS takes the lead in a couple of areas, giving it an advantage.  Their concentrating solar Fresnel lens design can be manufactured rapidly in a printing press like process.  Also, their bladeless steam turbine enables them to efficiently harness the heat generated by the lenses.  Together, these could give them more than a four-fold price advantage over their competitors in the market.

Ryan Davies, President & CEO of REDCO,  a privately financed renewable energy development company, said:

“I am excited to work with IAS and we anticipate building many solar power plants using their technology. After careful analysis of their technology and of the independent reviews conducted verifying their projections, I believe that the IAS technology is unique, revolutionary and ready for commercial application. I believe that the IAS turbine combined with their solar panels and heat exchanger will produce reliable solar energy at a fraction of the cost of traditional solar.” 

REDCO indicated that it will soon announce its first of several commercial solar energy projects – all of which will use the IAS solar technology. 


REDCO is a privately held company with offices in Utah. CEO, Ryan Davies is no stranger to new technology and emerging businesses. He has had a successful career as an entrepreneur and businessman, starting Found, Inc in 1997, which later sold to CRS Retail Systems for $110 million; starting O2 Blue in 2001 which later sold to Prebon Energy. He has raised over $50 million in private equity throughout his career.  See:

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
