PowerCell: Swedish fuel cell developer PowerCell expands footprint into Asia - the company establishes presence in South Korea

SWEDISH FUEL CELL DEVELOPER POWERCELL EXPANDS FOOTPRINT INTO ASIA - THE
COMPANY ESTABLISHES PRESENCE IN SOUTH KOREA

Nordic fuel cell technology leader PowerCell Sweden AB (publ) expands its
international business operations into Asia. PowerCell Korea Inc. has been
established in the capital Seoul. "We see a high potential for our
solutions in South Korea and the rest of the Asian market," said Magnus
Henell, CEO, PowerCell Sweden AB.

Nordic fuel cell technology leader PowerCell Sweden expands its
international business operations and presence into Asia. After gaining a
profound traction on the Asian market, PowerCell Sweden identified a great
potential for its solutions and services in the region.

To show its commitment to the customers in Asia, PowerCell has established
a presence in South Korea and has already succeeded in selling a number of
fuel cell systems in the region.

South Korea, a buoyant market for fuel cells, as well as the rest of the
Asian region are important markets for PowerCell Sweden. South Korea has
well defined targets to decrease energy consumption and is therefore
embracing plausible solutions for renewable energy sources. South Korea
already dominates installations of fuel cell units with high power output
and this leading position was strengthened when the world’s largest fuel
cell park, 59 MW, opened at Hwasang early 2014.

The fuel cell market has been sparked by government subsidies under the "1
million green energy house Project" in South Korea by KEMCO (Korea Energy
Management Corporation), and from 2015 to 2020 the market for independent
5kW to 25kW fuel cell systems is anticipated to grow rapidly. This is the
main target market for PowerCell and its all-new generation S2 stack with a
scalable power output ranging from 5kW to 25kW.

In South Korea, both Hyundai and Kia Motor Group are bringing fuel cell
powered vehicles on the market, which will further enhance a solid
commercial increase in demand for fuel cell technologies.

Magnus Henell, CEO, PowerCell said: "We have learnt that our solutions are
highly competitive and match requirements of the South Korean customer base
in particular, allowing us to expand our business substantially. With our
established presence in South Korea, we show a commitment to the Asian
market and we look forward to growing the business even further in this
region".

Daniel Han, Managing Director of PowerCell Korea Co. Ltd concluded: "2015
will be the take-off year for PowerCell sales, as most of the industrial
companies show firm interest in PowerCell’s technology and products. We
intend to establish some sound partnerships with key industrial players in
2015 to increase PowerCell’s footprint during 2015. We are pretty sure that
we will be a significant player on the South Korean fuel cell market by
2016".
