Seaforth Engineering Limited is bringing a contemporary product
to new markets through a partnership with a New England firm.

Atlantic Orient Canada Inc., of which Seaforth is half-owner, is
setting its sights on previously untapped potential with the
manufacture of a new Canadian wind turbine.

"We are very optimistic about the commercial market potential for
this product," said Seaforth engineer David Lawrence, "It's ideal
for remote communities."

Seaforth president David Lombardi and Mr. Lawrence unveiled their
latest wind turbine today as part of the opening ceremonies of
National Science and Technology Week, being held at InNOVAcorp's
Innovation Centre.

The turbine will be erected at the Technology Innovation Centre
in November as a demonstration project sponsored in part by
Natural Resources Canada and the COOPERATION Agreement on
Technology Development, managed by InNOVAcorp and the Atlantic
Canada Opportunities Agency.

The Dartmouth firm is not new to pushing boundaries and taking
risks. Seaforth recently wrapped up a five-year project as
partners in the Morgan Falls Power Company where they adapted
innovative turbine technology in a new hydro electric facility.
The hydro facility, which has been running smoothly since
January, has a contract with Nova Scotia Power to provide power
for 33 years from the New Germany-based facility.

Seaforth's export markets include such locales as Venezuela,
Thailand, Australia, Japan and Morocco, as well as home markets
in North America.

InNOVAcorp's Showcase  96 runs today until 6 p.m., at the
incubator facility at One Research Drive, Woodside Industrial
Park, Dartmouth.
