Wednesday September 29, 8:00 am ET
CAMBRIDGE, Mass - Sept. 29, 2004--SatCon Technology Corporation® (Nasdaq NM: SATC - News), a developer and manufacturer of power electronics and control systems, today announced that it received a $1.8 million purchase order for an initial installation of a 2.2 megawatt Rotary Uninterruptible Power Supply (RUPS). Included in the purchase order is an option for a second UPS for $1.5 million. Baldwin Technologies in College Park, Maryland served as the engineering and manufacturer"s representative for this sale and the final customer is the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado. Delivery of the first unit is expected in the first calendar quarter of 2005.
"We"ve been looking forward to this order for some time," said David Eisenhaure, president and CEO of SatCon Technology. "We installed our first 2.2 Megawatt system last year in Toronto, Canada and it has proven itself over and over again by providing continuous power during multiple outages and brownouts at the facility over the past year. With that installation we were able to go out and market our UPS as a product and not just a technology. Since then, we"ve had serious interest from several potential customers which we now hope will result in more orders in the future."
SatCon"s Rotary UPS is designed to provide both high-quality power during normal operation and to prevent any interruption of electricity to critical manufacturing, information, or service operations in case of power grid failures such as black-outs and brown-outs.
