TES, based in Greater Sudbury, Ontario, specialises in the distribution, servicing, rebuilding and manufacturing of mining equipment, including SPARTA, a customisable line of utility vehicles, engineered for underground mining.

As part of the new agreement, dynaCERT's HG145 products are immediately available to TES' clients in Canada.

The two companies have also agreed to collaborate to create markets for products aimed at the reduction of NOx, THC, particulate matter, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in underground mining environments, globally, by the integration of HydraGEN technology with equipment manufactured by TES.

TES president Kevin Whynott said: "At TES Inc. we are excited about the potential impact this partnership can have on creating a safer work environment for underground miners.

These miners face serious health risks from exposure to diesel particulate matter contained in the exhaust released from heavy diesel-powered vehicles and equipment.

"There is a need to focus on reducing emissions now. With newer technologies like HydraGEN technology we may have the ability to significantly lower the emissions on pre-existing and new diesel equipment entering the mines every day."

Jim Payne, president and CEO of dynaCERT added: "Our collaboration with TES Inc. will enable our HydraGEN technology to be recognised as a very beneficial product for the mining industry. I am looking forward to working with Kevin Whynott, CEO of TES, who, after our first meeting at PDAC this year, followed by his visit to our Toronto facilities where he witnessed our products and manufacturing, he very quickly recognised how our association would help achieve his commitments to safety and air quality in underground mining.

"Kevin clearly stated his number one concern was the reduction of NOx and particulate matter, which is exactly how HydraGEN technology can be a solution to apprehensions of mining executives and employees."
