Cyclone Power Technologies Expands Facility to Fulfill $2 Million Backlog for Its Clean-Tech Engines

POMPANO BEACH, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cyclone Power Technologies (Pink Sheets: CYPW), developer of the all-fuel, clean-tech Cyclone Engine, announced today that it will expand the size of its facility by 30% beginning this month. The company will utilize the additional space, for which it recently signed a multi-year lease, to strengthen its engine development capacity.

“We are a company at a point of positive inflection in which we are transitioning from research and development to fulfilling purchase orders for pre-production engines”

Cyclone has a current backlog of orders for prototype engines valued at approximately $2 million. Two-thirds of these contracts have been received in the last three months, including those from Raytheon Company and international industrial equipment manufacturer CombiLift. Cyclone anticipates that these initial orders will lead to future production engine purchases, as well as contracts and licenses from new customers. In addition to expanding its work space, Cyclone is also in the process of hiring more mechanical engineers and skilled technicians, some of whom the company expects to come from the dismantled Florida space program.

“We are a company at a point of positive inflection in which we are transitioning from research and development to fulfilling purchase orders for pre-production engines,” stated Christopher Nelson, President of Cyclone. “The additional space, capacity and personnel are key steps to handling this growth. It’s a very exciting time to be part of Cyclone.”
