  • Flywheel Shipping Out

Max Mitchell of Kinetic Traction Systems has returned to Fairbanks from his home in California to un-install the flywheel used for the recent Hatch testing. 

The reinforced concrete foundation the flywheel was situated on during testing will remain in ACEP’s diesel bay for now.  It will potentially be used in the future as a strong foundation for other testing projects at ACEP’s Energy Technology Facility.
