INCREASED DELIVERIES BUT SLOW ORDER INTA...

EREVITA team, 5.11.2019 12:06:36

INCREASED DELIVERIES BUT SLOW ORDER INTAKE The third quarter can be summarized as a demanding period in which new orders have not been achieved, while we have seen good progress in our chosen geographical markets and segments, and more than tripled the revenue. To increase the order intake, we have in the past months strengthened and re-organized the sales organization, which is now focusing on rolling out our technology in our prioritized markets and segments. We have in several cases underestimated the complexity of the sales and delivery processes where external factors such as grid capacity, building and drilling permits and landlease agreements have had a large impact on the speed of the projects. This, together with partially unaccustomed customers, has made it difficult to get an overview of the projects and has extended lead times. We have seen these effects not only in Iceland and Japan, but also in Hungary and Germany. We have in recent quarters increased and refined our sales efforts in the marine and industrial segments. We are working systematically to bring up the first power plant in each geographical market, with Japan being next. After more than a year of hard work, we have now received most of the permits for the first power plant in Japan and the work has continued according to plan during the quarter. At the same time, the planning of the second power plant is underway. The goal is to be able to install the modules during the first and second quarters of next year. Despite the time required for these first power plants, our view of the potential in Japan has been strengthened, the political opinion is moving in the right direction and we have increased our local presence. In Iceland, we clearly see the value of having a power plant to demonstrate on location in the country. Landowners, municipalities, banks, grid owners and electricity producers require to see accurate measurement data and stable power generation to take the next step. The handover of the first power plant to the customer, high uptime and stable power generation with good performance enables us to begin the next phase of the roll-out in Iceland. The planning of the next power plants that will be built during the first half of 2020 is under way. An important milestone in the maritime segment is that Climeon for the first time has been approved in a Factory Acceptance Test for a customer within container freight. The Heat Power module was brought onboard the ship during the third quarter and the installation continues during the fourth quarter. A number of steps remain in the certification process, which allows for product approval for the first container ship, opening up a larger part of the maritime industry. Commissioning, and thus revenue recognition, can only take place when all approvals are in place. Previously, Climeon’s Heat Power modules have been delivered to five different cruise ships: Viking Grace 2015 and then the newly built Viking Glory and the three Virgin Voyages vessels.

Climeon has won a first order in the United Kingdom worth SEK 19.7 million, including software licenses and service fees. The order is the first where Climeon’s Heat Power modules will be utilized to recover waste heat from reciprocating engines based on natural gas. - We are very proud of this first order within power plants based on reciprocating engines, an industry with a strong growth potential. Power plants based on reciprocating engines are often used to balance solar and wind power plants and our Heat Power modules both increase efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide emissions, says Thomas Öström, CEO of Climeon. The Heat Power modules will be installed at Energy Circle Project 1 in the East Midlands, owned by Energy Circle PLC and maintained by engineering firm CooperÖstlund Ltd. The modules are scheduled to be installed during the end of 2020. Energy Circle and CooperÖstlund are developing a fleet of Flex Power plus power plants based on Natural Gas and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) reciprocating engines and will be delivering power to the national UK Electricity Grid. The Climeon Heat Power modules are part of a highly efficient power plant concept, where the modules help increase efficiency of the power plant, and thus decrease CO2 emissions. - The Heat Power modules are a great way to improve the efficiency of the engines and decrease the emissions. We look forward to continuing and extending our cooperation with Climeon, says Duncan McPherson, CEO of CooperÖstlund. Reciprocating engines are highly efficient, distributed and modular power generators, technologically similar to the engines used in the maritime segment where Climeon has been active since 2015. These power plants are used to produce a baseload power and to balance the grid stability, a need that has increased with the rising amounts of intermittent solar and wind power projects that have been installed in recent years.

Climeon has entered into a collaboration agreement with the New Zealand-based geothermal minerals firm Geo40 to strengthen the companies’ geothermal offering and enable an expansion into waste heat recovery at existing geothermal power plants, so-called bottoming cycles. The companies will be working together to establish a first combined mineral extraction and power production plant during 2020. Geo40 has developed a technology to extract silica and other minerals from geothermal brine, the hot wastewater that remains after high temperature geothermal power production. The silica in the brine causes scaling in geothermal pipes and wells and limits the heat that can be extracted and utilized for power generation. By extracting and removing the silica and other valuable minerals like lithium, Geo40’s technology reduces operating costs for geothermal power stations, while producing sustainably sourced minerals. The filtered water from Geo40’s application can then be utilized in Climeon’s Heat Power modules to produce clean electricity and increase power output at geothermal power stations. Bringing together the two firms’ technologies opens up a wide range of global opportunities, particularly in recovering waste heat from existing geothermal power plants, so called bottoming cycles. - We’re happy to announce this strategic collaboration with Geo40. By combining our Heat Power modules with Geo40’s technology for extraction of silica and valuable minerals we can strengthen our geothermal offering and open up a new part of the geothermal market, says Thomas Öström, CEO of Climeon. - We believe that our patented technology for silica removal combined with Climeon’s technology for waste heat recovery is an exciting development for the geothermal industry and will be exploring the possibilities of a first common project, says John Worth, CEO of Geo40. More than half of the world’s geothermal power plants have waste heat in Climeon’s temperature range that is currently not utilized for power production. By partnering with Geo40 to remove the silica from the brine, the waste heat can be utilized for power production, which opens up a new part of the geothermal market for Climeon. - Combining our technologies will enable us to better address the geothermal bottoming cycle market as we together increase the output from existing geothermal power plants while solving many of the issues that geothermal brine brings, concludes Thomas Öström.

Climeon has received an order from Norwegian Havila Voyages to install Heat Power systems on four newly built vessels. The order value amounts to about SEK 15.4 million, and delivery is expected to take place in 2021 and 2022. - We are happy that an established company such as Havila takes the sustainability issue seriously and therefore has decided to recover the waste heat when they build new cruise ships, says Thomas Öström, CEO of Climeon. - We look forward to working with Havila Voyages and to be part of making traveling along the Norwegian coast more sustainable. Climeon’s technology can reduce the ships’ carbon dioxide emissions and we believe that we have an important role to play in the maritime industry’s green transition, continues Thomas Öström. - For us, it is important to protect nature, and in this case the Norwegian coastline where our ships will sail. Climeon’s technology is an important piece of the puzzle as we build the most sustainable cruise ships that will be sailing along the Norwegian coast, says Arild Myrvoll, CEO of Havila Voyages. Havila Voyages AS is a family-owned, Norwegian company which during 2021 will take four new environmentally friendly cruise ships into operation to sail along the Norwegian coast. The ships are part of Havila’s contract with the Norwegian Ministry of Transport for travels between Bergen and Kirkenes. Havila Voyages is owned by the Norwegian business group Havila, which operates in the maritime industry, within transport and tourism. Havila Voyages’ four ships Havila Capella, Havila Castor, Havila Polaris and Havila Pollux are all 122,7 meters long, 22 meters wide and able to carry 640 passengers. The ships will be powered by a hybrid LNG (liquefied natural gas) and battery system. The battery packs will allow the ships to sail without noise and emissions for up to four hours. The combination of LNG, batteries and innovative technologies such as Climeon’s Heat Power system will make the vessels the most environmentally friendly cruise ships in service along the Norwegian coast, according to Havila Voyages. The four ships are currently being built in Tersan in Turkey. Climeon’s Heat Power systems are to be delivered during 2021 and 2022.

Climeon's first installation in Japan operational Climeon’s first Heat Power module in a geothermal power plant in Japan has successfully been commissioned and is now producing electricity. In 2018, Climeon won its first order in Japan. Since then, the company has established a subsidiary in the country, begun the installation of two power plants, and now also put the first Heat Power module into operation. - This is an incredibly important milestone for Climeon. Japan is one of the toughest geographical markets to enter. I am incredibly proud that we, together with Baseload Power Japan, managed to get a power plant up and running this fast, compared to how long it typically takes in Japan, says Thomas Öström, CEO of Climeon. - We are now contributing to the energy transition in Japan for real. Every kilowatt hour produced to the grid contributes to transforming the Japanese energy system, says Jack (Masao) Watanabe, President of Climeon Japan K.K. The first installation is located in Kyushu, where Climeon's Heat Power module is connected to an existing power plant and recovers the geothermal waste heat. - The fact that the first power plant now produces electricity is an important key to our continued rollout. Now we have proven to local partners and to our investors that Climeon and Baseload can produce fossil-free electricity in Japan, Masahiro Ito, Representative Director of Baseload Power Japan K.K. Japan is a highly prioritized geographical market for Climeon, due to the country’s favorable conditions for geothermal electricity production. After the accident at the Fukushima nuclear power plant in 2011, Japan's domestic energy production has decreased significantly, which is why the majority of all primary energy is imported and most of it is fossil. There are many hot springs around the country, from which geothermal heat power can be extracted. Today, only just over 2 percent of its known geothermal energy resources are utilized. The price of electricity generated from geothermal heat power in Japan today is just over SEK 3 per kWh, which is about eight times higher than the electricity price in Sweden.

Climeon wins first order within geothermal in Taiwan Climeon has won a first order within geothermal heat power in Taiwan, a new geographical market for the company. The order comes from Baseload Power Taiwan and includes Climeon Heat Power systems as well as design and consultancy services for the surrounding power plant. The total order value amounts to about SEK 41 million. Climeon has won a first order within geothermal heat power in Taiwan. The order comes from Baseload Power Taiwan and the target is to deliver the Heat Power modules by the end of the year. Associated design and consultancy services will be delivered as the project progresses. The power plant is expected to be one of the first commercial geothermal heat power plants in the country. We are proud to continue our global expansion through a first order in Taiwan. The geological conditions combined with financial incentives for green electricity production makes Taiwan an interesting market with great potential for Climeon, says Thomas Öström, CEO of Climeon. - Taiwan is a prioritized market for Baseload Capital and we are very happy be able to start executing on a first power plant in the country, says Van Hoang, President of Baseload Power Taiwan. Climeon has together with Baseload Capital worked actively in Taiwan since the beginning of 2019 to establish collaborations with local businesses, landowners and local authorities. In this first project the modular Heat Power plant will be built in eastern Taiwan. Apart from the Climeon Heat Power systems, the order from Baseload Power Taiwan includes control software, design-, consultancy-, and procurement services connected to the building of the power plant. The associated services amount to approximately 40 percent of the total order value. - Our vision is to deliver an increasingly complete power plant solution to our customers, continues Thomas Öström. In addition to our modules, we also offer the surrounding services that are part of a holistic solution. - Through a broader customer offering, including consultancy services, we have negotiated significantly better payment terms. This helps to strengthen our financial position, concludes Thomas Öström. Taiwan is, like Japan and the west coast of the USA, located in the “ring of fire”, an arcuate area along the Pacific Ocean coastal areas, which is known for high seismological activity and thereby also great resources of geothermal energy. Despite this, there are few active commercial geothermal power plants in the country. The greatest potential for extraction of geothermal energy is found along the eastern coast of Taiwan.
