“Globo Hydro Power™ is a product of interest and worthy of support in its commercialisation and trade for it’s a product that compliments our social obligations towards climate change; it’s a product that aligns with our political vision of “greening companies”, it’s a product that commercially supports tangible bottom line benefits to end-users”.
Ken Coomber, Chemist, Electroplater, Marine Motor Engineer and Managing Director of Coomber Surface Technologies Pty Ltd brings to Globo Hydro Power Limited over 30 years of research and hands on experience at all levels into the reclamation of large diesel engine cylinder liners in bore sizes from 190 to 430 mm by Porous Chromium Deposition.
This is a unique process introduced to Australia over 40 years ago through the Australian operations of National Hardchrome of Canada, where Ken was employed by or in association with for over 24 years.
Experience of this nature gives Ken a very deep appreciation of the potential market for Globo Hydro Power into the Rail, Mining, Marine and Oilfield Industries, once Globo Hydro Power Limited is ready to expand beyond the Automotive Fields, and additionally gives him important knowledge on how to counteract possible problems of bore erosion and ring groove wear in these industries where poorer quality, high sulphur content fuels are used.
These markets are both in Australia and Overseas, with Ken already submitting to the Managing Directors of Globo Hydro Power Limited a bold and classified plan whereby some of these Overseas Markets, when exploited, can remain under the direct control of the Globo Hydro Power Limited’s Australian Headquarters, and not be sold off as I.P. Rights, achieving very substantial profits for Australia, with direct influence on the local share price. Ken recognises the challenges of his role, but is confident of complete success.
