TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 5, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Internal Hydro International, Inc. (OTCBB:IHDR) (www.internalhydro.com) announced today that its positive displacement low hydro technology, the Energy Commander V (EC V), has now operated with an efficiency that exceeded engineered expectations. The efficiency of the EC V using low flows of water into the twelve piston radial system, in the first demonstrations show that the unit will be able to produce the electricity production goal at a lower water pressure than previously published. The EC V consistently operated on lower than calculated water pressures of 50 p.s.i. instead of 65 p.s.i. to produce the force necessary for production of 30 kilowatts from a six inch flow. The unit was demonstrated to partners and select visiting parties on site in Mobile, Alabama on Wednesday. Video of the unit operation is planned to be on the Company's web site by Friday. Ongoing demonstrations will now occur for the unit, as production will now be handed over to IHDR's European partner, Cm2, for delivery of units for entry into multiple area in both North America, Europe, and to fill contracts for unit delivery.
