VYCON Enters Distribution Agreement with Savior Energy Systems for its Green Energy VDC Flywheel for Un-interruptible Power Systems

February 8, 2007

Los Angeles – VYCON, a market leader in the innovation, design and manufacture of advanced, high cycling energy storage flywheel systems, today announced a distribution agreement with Savior Energy Systems for VYCON’s flywheel power systems in Turkey, the Middle East and Russia. Savior Energy Systems is a leading provider of Uninterruptible Power Supplies (“UPS”) systems in over 65 countries, with significant market share in the Middle East and Russia. 

Under the terms of the Agreement, Savior Energy Systems will distribute VYCON’s VDC systems integrated with its own UPS. This green solution eliminates and/or reduces the need for batteries while providing increased reliability and safety of mission critical systems. 

The VYCON VDC is a flywheel based energy storage system that provides a stable, reliable, low-maintenance, extended-life DC voltage source for critical power applications. The VDC, which can be seamlessly paralleled for higher power requirements, can completely eliminate the need for maintenance-laden batteries in UPS applications by providing sufficient ride-through for short duration power outages, or until a standby engine-generator can come on line. 

"We are very pleased to welcome Savior Energy Systems to VYCON’s growing list of distribution partners and customers worldwide,” said Louis Romo, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Europe, Asia and North Africa are increasingly significant markets for our technology and by partnering with established companies such as Savior Energy Systems, customers are provided with a quality service with our products.” 

“Merging the VYCON VDC with the Savior UPS will provide customers with a level of reliability and availability which has been difficult to achieve with traditional batteries,” said Murat Soycengiz, General Coordinator of Savior Energy Systems. The VYCON flywheel system operates at temperatures and under conditions that batteries are just not capable of. Customers now have an option previously unavailable for hostile environments such as those commonly found with Savior’s customers.”
