Free Flow Power Corporation, a hydropower and hydrokinetic renewable energy company, welcomes the addition of Robert Mamo as Vice President of Manufacturing for its wholly-owned subsidiary, Free Flow Power Technology LLC. Mr. Mamo will oversee the manufacturing of the SmarTurbine Generator, which extracts energy from moving water without building new dams or diversions or causing other adverse environmental impacts.
Mr. Mamo was previously a Director in Lear Corporation’s International Automotive Components Group, where his responsibilities included products developed for Toyota and Lexus in North America. His experience includes 20 years at Lear, Textron, and GM where he led engineering teams that brought over 40 products from design to large-scale manufacturing.
Daniel Irvin, CEO of Free Flow Power Corporation, commented, “We are excited that Bob has decided to join Free Flow Power. High volume manufacturing is a critical part of our plans to make hydrokinetic generation cost effective. We decided some time ago that the person we needed was likely going to be from the auto industry. For all of its challenges, Detroit is the world leader in cost-effective, high-volume manufacturing. The knowledge and experience that Bob brings us from that industry would be hard to find anywhere else.”
Mr. Mamo remarked, “I wanted to move into an industry with more growth potential, but where my manufacturing experience was relevant. I looked at a lot of different opportunities, and I did a lot of diligence. Free Flow Power’s technology and its team are really exciting to me.”
