Interim report: New collaborations open markets in North and South America
In the second quarter Azelio signed three Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) for energy storage in the North and South American markets. The largest was signed with California-based Trimark Associates and covers energy storage installations totalling 45 MW. Trimark offers a broad portfolio of energy solutions in the US, particularly monitoring and metering of solar farms and modernisation of the US electricity grid. Customers include power companies and the US Department of Defence. MOUs were also signed with the Mexican company CITRUS, which supplies renewable energy solutions to several different sectors, and with the Chilean company VOGT, which is the leading supplier of pumping systems to the mining industry in Latin America. VOGT wants to use Azelio’s technology to enhance its offering to clients and drive their pumping systems with cost-efficient and reliable renewable energy, instead of using diesel generators as today.
The verification project with certification company DNV-GL is continuing from Azelio’s installation in Åmål, Sweden, and will be supplemented later with data from the installation in Morocco. The current travel restrictions prevent entry into Morocco and therefore also the start-up of verification locally. Preparations for the next verification project in Abu Dhabi in partnership with Masdar and Khalifa University are continuing according to plan for installation to begin in Q3 2020.
