Azelio interim report: The verification project started
The verification of Azelio’s storage technology in partnership with leading certification company DNV-GL has begun. An inauguration of Azelio’s energy storage took place at one of the world’s largest solar parks, Noor in Morocco. It was attended by government representatives, the World Bank and IFC, among others. In view of the current travel restrictions due to Covid-19 the verification will initially focus on the installation in Åmål, Sweden. Preparations for starting the verification of a further four energy storage units in Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with the company’s partners Masdar and Khalifa University, are continuing according to plan.
Azelio’s commercial successes continued in the fourth quarter with the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Hussein Atieh & Sons Co. (HAE) for a project in Jordan which will pave the way for a commercial partnership covering around 25 MW. The intention is that HAE will also become Azelio’s sales, installation and O&M partner in Jordan.
