("Proton" or the "Company")



Order for 75kVA Containerized Fuel Cell Stationary Power System  for the Orkney Islands "Surf and Turf" project


Proton Power Systems plc (AIM: PPS), a clean tech total power solution provider and designer, developer and producer of fuel cells and fuel cell electric hybrid systems, is proud to announce, that it has received an order for a 75kVA containerized fuel cell stationary power system for the Orkney Islands "Surf and Turf" project.

The 'Surf and Turf' project involves generating hydrogen from wind and tidal energy and using it as the energy storage medium. The hydrogen is used to provide electricity for the Orkney Islands harbour. The wind and seas around the Orkney Islands provide an abundance of renewable energy resources. Through concerted efforts, communities like Orkney Islands are now starting to see the benefits of ownership of renewable power generation capacity. This project will see the Orkney Islands take a small, but important, step towards rising to the challenge of managing the limits of its energy infrastructure. This project will help unlock the constraints imposed by 20th century power cables and a is great demonstration of how our technology can help overcome the shortcomings of the local electricity grid.

Proton will provide a 75kVA containerized fuel cell stationary power system for a total contract value of more than €0.5 million to be delivered in 2016.

Faiz Francoise Nahab Ph.D., CEO of Proton, said: "This is a very important order for us. The fuel cell system is based on our 25kVA system, which is operated in a modular mode. The container has all necessary components to be connected to the local grid. Proton is responsible for the turn key delivery of the container. We hope to see more applications in this market sector and more islands like the Orkney Islands taking a proactive role. Proton expects a fast growing demand worldwide for this type of applications. Storing wind and solar energy is a big challenge and we have the right solution to use such green energy in stationary or mobile applications".
