Nel ASA: Receives Additional Purchase Order from Nikola

Del

Nel ASA (Nel, OSE: NEL) has received a USD 5.5 million purchase order from Nikola Motor Company (Nikola), as part of the previously announced hydrogen stations.

“We are very proud to announce that we have received an additional order from Nikola related to the electrolyzer and fueling solution for their prototype trucks. The order marks a strengthening of our partnership and is a recognition of the level of competence our team and hydrogen solutions can offer. We look forward to supplying the demo stations, which will lay the groundwork for the world’s largest, most efficient network of low-cost hydrogen production and fueling sites,” says Jon André Løkke, Chief Executive Officer of Nel.

On November 15, 2017, Nikola and Nel announced the exclusive partnership and a purchase order for two so-called demo hydrogen refueling stations for Nikola's fleet of prototype hydrogen trucks. The partnership aims at developing low-cost, renewable hydrogen production and fueling sites for the potential development of 14 large-scale sites; however, Nikola and Nel are now evaluating if the initial station number should be doubled to 28 stations.

“The Nikola hydrogen electric semi-trucks will begin testing with fleets in 2019 and begin full production in 2021. One of the most respected brands in America just signed an order with Nikola to convert 100% of their fleet over to Nikola trucks. This will require an additional 28 more stations to go up to support those efforts on top of the existing Nel purchase order. Nel has been a great partner to work with and we are excited to begin replacing diesels in America with zero emission trucks. The future for zero emission trucks has never been brighter,” says Trevor Milton, Chief Executive Officer of Nikola.

The additional purchase order has a value of USD 5.5 million, bringing the total value for the demo stations to approximately USD 9 million, with delivery in the second half of 2018 and into 2019.

Third-Party Study Validates STATS K50 GPS’ Superior Accuracy in Measuring High-Intensity Performance18.2.2019 07:00:00Pressemelding

In a recent independent study by the Technical University of Munich (TUM), STATS, the worldwide leader in sports data and intelligence, had its novel 50 Hz GPS system (STATS K50) tested against a traditional 15 Hz GPS system (GPSports SpiProX) to measure covered distance and instantaneous velocity. Both systems were simultaneously recorded and measured against a criterion reference (Laveg radar gun) during 30-metre linear sprint trials. The study, commissioned by STATS and conducted by TUM, found that STATS K-50 has a smaller bias than a traditional technology and that it is capable of quantifying high intensity activities 30% more accurately. High-intensity movements and accelerated runs over short distances are believed to be the most important variables to be tracked in sports science. STATS K50’s new approach to wearable tracking is an integrated inertial navigation system (INS)/GPS technology that combines 50 Hz GPS position and Doppler velocity measurements with inertial measurem

5 Happening Cultural Destinations to Visit in 201915.2.2019 10:11:00Pressemelding

Hong Kong There’s never really a sleepy year to visit Hong Kong, but 2019 is particularly ripe for visitors. Spearheaded by the dynamic entrepreneur Adrian Cheng of K11 and New World Development, the rejuvenation of Tsim Sha Tsui harbourfront is just the starting point. The city’s iconic harbourside walkway, Avenue of Stars, has just received a much-awaited makeover that’s the brainchild of Cheng and visually conceived by James Corner, the landscape architect responsible for the High Line in New York. It sees the addition of design-driven rest areas, kiosks featuring homegrown brands, hand prints from Asian film stars and interactive digital elements. Featuring Hong Kong’s first wave energy demonstrator that produces electricity for the Avenue, the place is turned into one of the most sustainable promenades in Hong Kong. This is just one part of Cheng and his company’s grander urban revitalisation plan, Victoria Dockside, a new art and design district which will fully open in the third
