From Weapons to Wind Power
Release: 20 May 2003
PARK, CA. -- Empire Magnetics Inc., in collaboration with Lawrence
Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), is working with scientists of the
Makeyev State Rocket Center (MSRC) to convert the efforts of 30,000
staff members from development of weapons of mass destruction to
peaceful and sustainable commercial enterprises. The collaboration is
part of the U.S. Department of Energy's Initiatives for Proliferation
Prevention (IPP) program.
July 2002 Dr. Richard McClellan and Richard Halstead, are believed to
be the first non-governmental Americans to visit the formerly secret
city of Miass, since the fall of the USSR.
and departing Yekaterinburg (Formerly Sverdlovsk) Russia using visas
where the photographs of the two Richards exchanged by the Russian
consulate in San Francisco required extraordinary cooperation on the
part of the Russian immigration officials.
visit by the MSRC project directors to LBNL is planned for early June.
In an historic first, the IPP program has obtained permission
from the Russian government and U.S. State Department for three top
scientists with access to secret projects, from a center that designs
and develops submarine based ICBM’s, to travel to the United States.
MSRC scientists to avoid multiple trips to the US Embassy 1700 miles
away in Moscow, required extra effort by the consular officials at the
US Consulate in Yekaterinburg, to process the two kilograms of forms
for each applicant’s visa.
plans have Vladimir Krivospitskij PhD, Jurij Grahov PhD, and Vasilij
Maksimov PhD arriving in San Francisco on the 8th of June
2003 for eight days of meeting and tours.
The specific purpose of the lab meetings is to expedite the
development of vertical axis windmills for mass production.
However with such a large pool of scientific and engineering
talent at MSRC, additional opportunities for peaceful commerce are
needed, interested parties should contact Empire Magnetics Inc. to
Krivospitskij a former Olympian, heads up the MSRC efforts in Miass.
Approximately twenty scientists, and a larger group of engineers &
technicians support him. With the expectation that this project will
expand to include many more of the 4000+ PhD’s at the MSRC, a
private corporation has been formed for the specific purpose of moving
these scientists off government payrolls.
private Russian company, Uralmet Scientific Institute is acting as the
liaison between the Russian government and private industry.
the American side, Daryl Oshatz of the Engineering Division at LBNL is
leading the IPP project, while Dr. Glen Dahlbacca is the IPP program
director. Congresswoman Lynn Woolsey’s has been briefed on the
Magnetics Inc, as the supplier of alternators for the windmills, is
currently the focal point for private US business activity in this
undertaking. Intent upon locating partners and venture funding to support
rapid growth, Dr. McClellan is acting as CEO of soon to be formed
umbrella organization named Wind-sail.
