Hydrogenics Signs Agreement to Create "Kolon Hydrogenics" Joint Venture for Power Generation in South Korea

June 23, 2014

MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, June 23, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Hydrogenics Corporation (HYGS) (HYG.TO) (“Hydrogenics” or “the Company”), a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and hydrogen-based power systems, today announced the signing of a definitive agreement to create a joint venture with Kolon Water Energy, part of a leading conglomerate in South Korea. Kolon Group is one of the nation’s largest industrial companies, with a focus on chemicals and textiles, and its subsidiary, Kolon Water Energy, has identified the potential for renewable power generation projects in South Korea and other Asian regions. Hydrogenics’ and Kolon Water Energy’s joint venture will look to capitalize on these renewable energy opportunities. South Korea has a significant focus on the deployment of clean, efficient fuel cell technology.

For Hydrogenics, the joint venture represents an important step toward megawatt and multi-megawatt installations of PEM fuel cell products. The Company’s product development work in advanced fuel cell power modules and compact rack mounted certified systems forms an important platform for such applications, and the initial target market is thought to exceed 100MW — representing a significant revenue opportunity in equipment sales, service, and operations. The first 1MW of production has already been ordered and is expected to be ready for delivery by early 2015. This contract includes both a fuel cell array as well as a 20-year maintenance and service agreement. Additional fuel cell orders are expected in the coming quarters, to complete a multi-megawatt initial project rollout by 2016.

“This is a major step forward for Hydrogenics, as the joint venture opens up tremendous opportunities in a key market for renewable energy generation,” said Daryl Wilson, President and CEO of Hydrogenics. “This also marks Hydrogenics’ first participation in power purchase agreements with local businesses in South Korea. We are very gratified to be working with such an astute, well-connected partner as Kolon Water Energy.”

“We see a very strong market opportunity with our local customers and beyond, and we look forward to working with Hydrogenics toward realizing the full business potential of this new venture,” added Kolon Water Energy CEO Soo-Young Lee.
