India

Overview

India’s geo-political environment results in one of the world’s most complex marketplaces for petroleum products. Due to the country’s large size, APT continues to develop a multi-layered approach to India, with individual product lines and major applications being developed with various parties (manufacturers, oil companies, and direct end users).

APT is in advanced discussions with a range of strategic relationships, including joint development arrangements with many of the country’s largest companies.

 

Strategic Alliance with Industrial Boiler Manufacturer

The industrial boiler manufacturer is a global solutions provider in the field of energy and environment engineering. The Company has offices in South East Asia, the Middle East, Africa, Russia, India, UK and the US, and ranks as one of the largest boiler retailers in India. Several thousand industrial-scale boilers previously sold are diesel- and heavy oil-based, and the Company provides maintenance services to all its boiler customers.

 

A strategic alliance MOU was executed, and an evaluation of APT’s boiler technology on a specific configuration basis commenced in Q4 2009.
