The Suame Magazine Industrial Development Organization (SMIDO) is on the verge of a major historic breakthrough to push the frontiers of the current global automobile engineering standards, when it unveils a new vehicle dubbed: SMATI Magnetic A in the 1st quarter of 2014.
SMATI Magnetic A is a new global prototype vehicle that uses No fuel, Oil and Water with a trademark inscription of N-FOW indicating a vehicle that uses No Fuel, Oil and Water in the SMATI Magnetic brand of vehicles that would become the hall mark of Ghana and Africa contribution to a new global revolution in the automobile industry.
Disclosing this to the media in Kumasi, the Consultant to SMIDO, Nyaaba-Aweeba Azongo, said the SMATI MAGNETIC A is being designed to be the world’s most environmentally-friendly automobile that does not use fuel, oil and water for cooling, no carbon emissions and has virtually very little maintenance, which will save users some money and would set a new standard in Global automobile technology to establish a Ghanaian Global Technological Trademark.
According to Mr.Azongo, there is being a successful breakthrough and that he can say with confidence that the new SMATI Magnetic A prototype is about 80% complete, and would be formally unveiled before the media for the Ghanaian and Global Audience by the first Quarter of 2014.
According to Azongo, the current prototype is a saloon car fitted with the SMATI Magnetic Drive which is a product of indigenous technology and ones complete no fuel would be required to move the vehicle even if it is being driven from Ghana to Europe on land. It charges automatically upon movement and one requires the 1st 30km/hr to charge the battery which then automatically switches to the Alternator. One can also plug it to electricity to charge.
Ask whether this would be shipped to Europe as the SMATI Turtle, which s currently being exhibited in the Netherlands, He intimated that shipping it to Europe like the SMATI Turtle, would amount to mortgaging our collective conscience as a nation.
He indicated that the vehicle would have to be considered on its own merit in Ghana, registered and certified to be used on the Ghanaian soil and investment pulled domestically to ensure mass commercial production in Ghana.
According to the Azongo, the Development of the new prototype is under the auspices of the Suame magazine Industrial Development Fund( SMID Fund). He said SMID Fund is currently supporting the SMATI Magnetic incubation to ensure the successful completion of the vehicle by the 1st quarter of next year.
According to Mr. Samuel Ampiah, Head of the Science, Engineering and Technological Hunt (SETH) for Innovation-Incubation & Investment Unit (SETH III Unit) under the Suame Magazine Automatics Technical Institute (SMATI), who is leading expertise in the design of the current prototype, The SMATI Magnetic A is powered with direct current ranging from 12 volts to 60 volts energy.
It is brushless induction motor with an alternator, transformers, output transistors, transmission gears and chargers, and has an effective charging system as it is driven, and has no limit to the distance that it can travel, so long as it is moving recharging is effective. It has speed ranging from 160 km/ph to 300 kilometers per hour either manual or automatic driven.
The President of SMIDO, Mr. Sarpong Boateng, who doubles as the chairman of the Mechanical Association of Suame Magazine, has hailed the current breakthrough as a great revolution to deepen respect for artisan engineers as change agents in the wheels of nation development.
He called on Government to get actively involved in the successful outcome of this major global revolution from Ghana to showcase the Ghanaian ingenuity as a global brand and the prospects of Ghana’s Socio-Economic Development.
