Innovative Solutions to Unusual Problems
About Lionwood Construction
Lionwood Construction was created in 1995. Originally operating as a general contractor in the residential and commercial fields, the company has expanded over the years into other areas. Lionwood excels at Project Management and finding innovative solutions to unusual problems, reliably delivering a high percentage of ‘on-time and under-budget’ projects across many different fields and environments.
Lionwood Construction has been involved in a number of unusual projects, including renovating academic facilities, reviewing Export Control Classification Numbers (ECCN’s) and constructing highly specific and unique-use structures and facilities. After working on these projects and others in the industrial and environmental sectors, and in food processing and manufacturing facilities, in 2016 Lionwood began looking at food and energy security issues throughout Canada and globally. We continue to undertake facility assessments and field reporting on those facilities.
Our company is currently researching the conversion of kinetic energy from ship’s movement (roll, pitch, yaw) into usable electrical energy. This technology will provide the basis for further expansion into other related fields, such as stabilization assistance for sea-going craft, and other forms of energy production such as wave-generated electric power.
Lionwood Construction is developing a new concept in kinetic wave energy conversion systems – a novel alternator system known as the Eggertson Device. Installing this alternator on a specifically designed platform may be a game-changer in the Wave Energy Conversion world.
The Eggertson Device does not rely on transforming the wave motion and energy into rotational motion to spin or drive an alternator or generator. Rather it uses the motion created by a swinging pendulum, this motion being caused by interaction with the wave motions.
Lionwood Construction will continue to investigate opportunities in alternative energy production, including wind, solar, and hydrogen. We are committed to developing alternatives to fossil fuels, and to reducing or reversing the detrimental effects of climate change.
Lionwood’s flagship WEC, the Eggertson Device, is currently at Technology Readiness Level 4 (TRL 4) and is ready to move to TRL 5 and beyond to full-scale production. With only three moving parts, this is a revolutionary technology that will disrupt the emerging green energy markets.
We are also working on a design to have the Eggertson Device produce hydrogen from sea water.
We have worked on the development of a natural organic spray to mitigate the problem of smudging makeup while wearing medical-style facemasks.
We are also working on producing a non-physical barrier to prevent the spread of air-borne viral or bacteriological particles or infectious agents between personnel on public transit.
Lionwood has also designed a Tidal generator, suitable for scalable installations in various geographic locations, including smaller systems in rivers and streams.
Lionwood is working on various military designs and proposals including ablative armour solutions, as well as having worked on military-to-civilian transitions software.
Other projects in the pipeline include removal of microplastics from contained water supplies and hydrokinetic energy converters for ship-borne installations.
