The installation agreement includes a letter of intent with the customer to negotiate terms of profit sharing agreements as a second project phase, when the savings potential has been measured and identified.
Christian Merheim, Chairman of the Board Enersize, comments:
"Hankook is a very attractive customer. They are internationally well-known, both in the B2B and consumer markets, and they have a strong presence with their own factories in China, where they also managed to take a market-leading position among domestic competitors. In addition, it is a large plant with good savings potential, which motivates us to speed up the process by starting step-by-step with an installation contract. It also shows that Enersize partner Venergy is able to continuously deliver high quality customer projects."
Sami Mykkänen, CEO Enersize, comments:
"As we previously published, we have a large customer pipeline and this is one of the projects we have worked on during spring and summer. We expect to continue to present more realized projects based on the customer pipeline during the current and coming quarters.
With this project, we are expanding to another sector in the automotive industry. One of Enersize's main goals is to reduce global energy use and CO2 emissions and a large part of a vehicle's emissions during its life cycle comes from the manufacturing of the car. With a high level of presence in the automotive industry and suppliers to the automotive industry, it is pleasing to be able to contribute to reduced emissions
