CTG Launches New Division of Business

23 July 2007

CTG have launched ‘Clean Energy Technologies’ as their newest division of the business, which will represent products in the business like composite flywheels, turbo–machinery, high speed motors and generating sets.

CTG specialise in the design and manufacture of advanced composites for the motorsport, aerospace and medical imaging industries. The new division of the business has been launched to give more emphasis to products like composite flywheels that are currently in high demand. Composite flywheels are currently used in uninterruptible power systems, the flywheel stores kinetic energy and can release that energy when the mains power is cut. The system can produce energy for a short amount of time until generators are started up for longer periods of power. These systems are used in critical applications like hospitals where constant power is crucial.

Engineering Director Mike Dewhirst said, “In the current climate finding ‘green’ solution’s is becoming far more important and with CTG’s extensive composite knowledge products like flywheels, for kinetic energy storage can be of real benefit.”
