HPEV’s technology benefits are validated and its business model accelerated by pump industry leader ESSCO Pumps and Controls orders.

(Tampa, FL: December 18, 2013) HPEV, Inc. (OTCQB:WARM), an innovator in energy efficiency and heat removal technologies, announced today that it has received its first order for the $30+ billion water and wastewater industry. The order came from custom solutions pump industry leader ESSCO Pumps & Controls for HPEV’s heat removal technology to be integrated in the rollout of its revolutionary new line of dry-pit submersible pumps for the water and wastewater industry.

HPEV’s technology is being integrated into ESSCO’s new flagship line of dry-pit submersible pumps to drive more pumping power and sharply reduce operation and maintenance costs for end users.

HPEV’s technology is integrated directly into the pump drive motor which has Nidec Motors electrical components inside. All integrated parts meet all National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and EPAct standards.

“As we learned in our testing last month, we expect that this technology will change the technology face of the water and wastewater industry. It will reshape thinking in terms of physical size of the drivers and allow more horsepower in a smaller package which in turn will reduce and almost eliminate expensive maintenance and downtime. As I have previously stated, I am amazed with the improvement that we are seeing over the legacy products available today. I want to grab as much of this market as possible because this technology has not been seen in the market before and the savings in maintenance costs will be tremendous. The product will pay for itself in savings in a short time. Couple that with a substantial increase in pumping power and things start to get interesting,” commented John Ivins, President of ESSCO Pumps and Controls.

“We are solidly on track with our OEM rollout in the water and wastewater business with ESSCO and extremely pleased with our customer’s response,” said Timothy Hassett, HPEV’s CEO and co-founder. “We are also very excited about the way ESSCO’s validation and commercialization of our technology will positively affect our planned ramp up in all areas of our business which include the motor/generator and mobile generator markets.”
