Interim report: Production start approaching as planned

Azelio strengthened its commercial organisation in the second quarter by establishing sales organisations in Australia, South Africa and the Middle East. Moreover, the company was selected for Accelerator programmes in India and Indonesia with the aim of introducing Azelio’s technology in collaboration with the Swedish Energy Agency and Business Sweden.

Preparations for the start of production at the end of September are progressing as planned and include securing the supply chain as well as the design and fine tuning of numerous new processes. In addition, a memorandum of understanding (MOU) was signed with US-based MMR Constructors, with the aim of developing projects combining Azelio’s long-duration energy storage, TES.POD, with solar PV to thereby supply customers with renewable energy around-the-clock. Azelio has thus entered 15 MOUs and has two extensive collaborations in place with Abu Dhabi-based Masdar and Morocco-based Masen.

In addition to the company's two commercial contracts for one and two storage units, respectively, in August Azelio received a conditional order from Engazaat Development S.A.E. on 20 units of Azelio's renewable energy warehouse, TES.POD®.

The ongoing pandemic is creating challenges worldwide, also for Azelio. Challenges related to suppliers and business partners but also for our business development, where restrictions make project specifications and assessments more difficult and time-consuming.
