April 25, 2014 – EnWave Corporation
EnWave Corporation (TSX-V:ENW | FSE:E4U) (“EnWave”, or the “Company”) announced today that the Company has amended the existing Lease Agreement (the “Agreement”) with a division of Bonduelle (“Bonduelle”), the world’s leading vegetable producer, to provide a 120kW quantaREV® machine rather than a 120kW MIVAP® plant to create and develop dehydrofrozen (“DHF”) vegetables as part of their business development efforts.
DHF vegetables are partially dehydrated and then quickly frozen. The purpose of this process is to retain nutritional content, color, flavor and most importantly texture when cooked from the frozen state.
Recent advancements made by EnWave’s engineering group regarding the development of the quantaREV® platform has enabled this change to occur, which will establish an increased synergy for the overall project and relationship with Bonduelle going forward. The two companies will concurrently collaborate on the research and development and on the design of an operational quantaREV® machine, up to 400kW, for DHF vegetable production with target finished frozen product capacity of between 3 and 4 tonnes per hour. The larger quantaREV® machine design is expected to be completed in 2015 providing Bonduelle with the opportunity to launch DHF products in a broader way.
