Pentadyne Power Readies for Flywheel ProductionOctober 29, 2002 by Jeff Shepard
Pentadyne Power Corp. (Chatsworth, CA), developer of flywheel power systems for power quality, distributed power and power recycling applications, announced the recent move of its operations to a new location in Chatsworth. The new 26,000ft² facility will house Pentadyne’s corporate offices, engineering and manufacturing, and marks a step forward in the company’s product and market development strategy. Pentadyne’s advanced flywheel technology, under development for nine years, will be officially introduced in 2003.
Pentadyne President and CEO Paul Craig acquired the flywheel technology and founded Pentadyne in 1998 when he recognized the need for applying the advanced energy storage technology to commercial and industrial markets. "The new Chatsworth facility will allow us to produce products for power quality applications that demand safer, cleaner and more effective ride-through solutions in the near-term," said Craig. "Our expanded operations will also make it possible for Pentadyne to support distributed power and power recycling applications."
