WHAT DOES THERMO POWER OFFER?
There are roughly 4 Million trucks and trailers equipped with refrigeration units in the world today*.
Many haulers need to exchange their units every 3-5 years.
We estimate a global need for 1 million units EACH YEAR and this number will only increase.
THE CURRENT TECHNOLOGY IS OLD, INEFFICIENT AND ENVIRONMENTALLY UNFRIENDLY.
Thermo Power is the owner of a patented, revolutionary technology platform that is COMPACT, LIGHTER,
MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT, ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY and REQUIRES LESS MAINTENANCE.

What's To Gain?
A 10 % market share in the refrigeration unit (RRU) market = about €7,400,000.
A 10 % market share in the heat pump (RHP) market = about €400,000,000.
The transport refrigeration market is expanding as freight activity increases. As an example, the European Union is expecting a continued, steady growth of freight transport activity for the foreseeable future*. Driving factors in the development of new, more efficient technology for transport refrigeration are, among others, increasing energy prices as well as increasingly demanding environmental and foodstuffs regulations.
The technology is also well adaptable to air conditioning system. This market is even bigger than road transportation refrigeration.
We did our homework
We have a solid experience of both the technology and the market, and thanks to extensive research and development, we are well-adapted to current technologies and trends. Furthermore, we have a marketing plan that details how we intend to test, marketing and launch our innovation. Key business partners and pilot customers are already on board. Simply put - we are poised for success!

WHEN DO WE START MAKING MONEY?
1 to 1.5 years until market launch and first revenue
This estimate is based on us reaching our investment pledge. Do note that if we do not reach our pledged sum, we will still carry out all the necessary steps to bring our technology to the market - it will only take a little bit longer.
Our technology innovation has already passed the crucial proof of concept stage and is now on the brink of prototyping and market testing. We have business partners and pilot customers signed up and ready to take part in the process of fine-tuning the technology until it is ready for licensing, mass production and further development.
LICENSING IS THE KEY
Thermo Power will license manufacturers to produce refrigeration units using our patented technology. The manufacturers sell the units to end users in the transport sector. We estimate an annual production of 14,500 units in year 5.
TRANSPORT SECTOR GAINS
WHAT DO WE NEED TO MAKE IT HAPPEN?
What do we need it for?
We need to expand our staff and hire people.
We need to invest in hardware to manufacture and testing prototypes.
Intellectual Property Rights are crucial to protecting our technology.
Making the technology well-known is of course an important part of our plan.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Thermo Power is the owner of a patented rotary heat pump, a liquid ring compressor and a fan technology platform. Compared to existing technology, a system using Thermo Power technology will be:
MORE COMPACT, LIGHTER and MORE EFFICIENT.
THERMO POWER ROTARY HEAT PUMP SYSTEM
Today's heat pump systems that are found in refrigeration units are often bulky and inefficient because each part is driven separately by a diesel motor. This is where Thermo Power comes in. Our heat pump system is compact, light and energy efficient because all parts are powered by a single electric motor and rotate around a single axis in one, compact unit.
- IMPROVED CARGO CAPACITY
(smaller refrigeration units taking up less space)
- LOWER WEIGHT
- LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS
(less complexity = fewer things that can wear out or break)
- IMPROVED EFFICIENCY
(up to 30% lower energy consumption)
- LESS NOISE
- ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY REFRIGERANT

WHAT IS A HEAT PUMP?
When you think about refrigeration, you probably don't think of heat pumps. However, a heat pump can both heat and cool. Simply put, a heat pump is a device that uses a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another. Heat pumps in transport refrigeration are used to pull heat out of a compartment in order to keep the temperature at a given level. If the outside temperature is very low, the airflow can be reversed.
WHY SHOULD YOU INVEST?
Thermo Power offers an exciting opportunity to take part in a major technology shift in the field of transportation refrigeration - and it doesn't end there. Our technology is scalable and can be adapted to many different applications, such as air, rail and sea transportation and air conditioning.
7 reasons to invest:
- Unique patented technology
- Several business opportunities
- High technical expertise
- Extensive industry experience
- Qualified business partners
- No debts
- Commercially and Environmentally screened
For now, road transport refrigeration is our top priority, and we are on the verge of prototyping and market testing. In 1 to 1.5 years, our technology will be on the market. But what happens next? Do we have plans for further development of our technology? Yes, we do.
Our technology is scalable
The Thermo Power heat pump system is completely scalable. It is thus possible to adapt it to virtually any application area where a heat pump is in use. This includes most other forms of refrigerated transportation, i.e. reefer containers for air or sea freight. It is also adaptable to air conditioning units, like the ones used to maintain a pleasant indoor atmosphere, and to industrial refrigeration.
The air conditioning market is even bigger than road transportation refrigeration. In 2012, worldwide sales of air conditioning units amounted to a whopping €81,200,000,000*. There were, in 2008, around 650,000,000 such units in use in the world - and sooner or later, they all need to be replaced. Thermo Power can offer a simpler, more efficient technology that will also take up less space and make less noise.

to over €81,200,000,000. Sales are forecast
to increase by 33 % in 2013.
