Seven year framework agreement


Proton Power Systems plc (AIM: PPS), a Clean Tech total power solution provider, uniquely the designer, developer and producer of fuel cells and fuel cell electric hybrid systems, is pleased to announce that it signed with a blue chip German customer a significant framework agreement for fuel cell emergency power units. The total value of the framework agreement is €15 million for a number of systems which are all expected to be delivered and installed over a seven year period. The agreement currently covers only one of Germany's regions, Bavaria, and follows the first binding order received in April from this customer for the delivery of systems worth €1.8 million during 2016.


The power range of the units to be delivered to this customer varies from 6 to 8kVA and the units will be contained in outdoor cabinets which include hydrogen storage, fuel cells, UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) and auxiliary components. These units provide a complete solution based on hydrogen fuel cell technology for long backup time, supplying clean energy for critical loads.


Faiz Francoise Nahab Ph.D., CEO of Proton, said: "This framework agreement is another milestone that will provide year on year revenue streams as commercialization of our core technology is now realized. Our continued investment in our manufacturing capability is now bearing fruits. This is the proof that the fuel cell technology is commercially attractive to customers resulting in projects which will provide years of revenues for Proton. This order demonstrates our expertise in providing complete solutions with a fuel cell as part of a UPS system with a very long backup time. The combination of fuel cell and UPS technology allows us to design complete solutions also for customers with high power rating requirements. We are confident of an increase in demand for hydrogen based applications in 2016 and beyond ".
