Axial Vector Energy Corp. announced this morning it has sold its first license to manufacture its multi fuel “work horse engines” in Malaysia. Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Premier Group signed the exclusive license agreement, which covers Malaysia, Indonesia and parts of Southeast Asia.
Premier Group has agreed to produce a minimum of 5,000 workhorse engines to be configured for palm oil use only. The agreement requires a non-refundable fee of $500,000 dollars as well as a durability pilot site for 5,000 hours using palm oil, which is funded by Premier. The agreement also provides for further milestone payments of $500,000 at completion of technology transfer to the production facility and $1,000,000 at start up of the production facility and an additional $1,000,000 when the first engine is completed.
Axial Vector will receive $2,000 per engine royalty on a perpetual basis after the first 500 engines are produced. The company has agreed to provide the first right of refusal to purchase the continuing royalty should it decide to sell its forward revenue stream. Premier will receive a first right of refusal to license AVEC electric motors or coreless generators after the initial payments of $3,000,000 are complete.
Rahim Mahmud, Managing Director of Premier Group, stated, “We are very pleased to be the first licensee to be able to produce this extraordinary engine. The enormous torque band allowing operation without a transmission and its ability to run on Palm Oil only or many other fuels creates an ideal situation for our country and most of Southeast Asia. As the world’s largest producer of Palm Oil, our country has enormous ability to use these engines for very low cost power using “non fossil fuel”. We believe this sets the standard for the future of clean power without hydrocarbons and we will be bringing officials of the Malaysian Government to the AVEC Technology Demonstration in Virginia Beach, USA on July 14th.”
Ahmed Khalifa, AVEC Chairman, commented, “This license and the revenue received under it represent what we believe will be the first of many revenue streams in 2009. Mr. Mahmud’s background in Oil and Gas and their company’s ability to deploy the engines using value added Palm Oil will be very profitable for all and provide a springboard of commercial credibility which can then be expanded to other areas of the world.”
