Advent Technologies signs MoU with DANNAR to develop fuel cell line extension and mobile charging station

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Advent Technologies Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADN) (“Advent” or the “Company”), an innovation-driven leader in the fuel cell and hydrogen technology industries, is pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (“MoU”) with DD Dannar, LLC. (“DANNAR”), an industry leader in battery and renewable energy manufacturing, storage and software.

Using Advent’s existing and next-generation fuel cell technology, Advent and DANNAR will collaborate to develop a line extension of fuel cells for DANNAR’s mobile power equipment and create a large-scale mobile charging station. The objective of the project is to allow DANNAR to transform the fleet of its customers by replacing many single-use work vehicles with a zero-emission and configurable electric multifunctional platform. This single platform could meet a multitude of daily maintenance, seasonal and emergency response needs. The companies also intend to explore marketing opportunities with third parties.

Advent’s next-generation fuel cell technology addresses the global need for a dynamic and flexible fuel cell that is resilient enough to replace the diesel generator and internal combustion engine. Based on Advent’s next-generation MEA – currently under development as part of The Innovator, the Company’s joint development program with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Los Alamos National Laboratory, the National Laboratory from Brookhaven and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory – and with a uniquely engineered architecture, Advent’s next-generation fuel cell technology is positioned to provide the clean energy solution for the mobility and power generation markets. ‘electricity.

Dr. Vasilis Gregoriou, President and CEO of Advent, said: “We are excited to partner with DANNAR, to help them maximize the integration of smart technology to transform mobile and resilient power systems. DANNAR builds and supports the intersection where zero-emission clean energy and high-performance off-road machinery meet. We firmly believe that our existing and next-generation fuel cell technology can play a pivotal role in helping DANNAR dramatically extend the operational reach of its solutions and build the clean-energy heavy equipment of the future. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.

Mr. Gary Dannar, Founder and Managing Director of DANNAR, added: “Building stronger, cleaner, safer and more resilient first responder teams is central to DANNAR’s strategy. Mobile Power Stations® provide off-grid export power as well as power for heavy equipment responding to planned and unexpected operational emergencies. By partnering with Advent, one of the leading and most innovative companies in the fuel cell and hydrogen technology markets, a wide range of electric fleet managers in the industry will have greater great flexibility for their respective responses. Energy and charging needs are increasing at an unprecedented rate, and we are confident that this collaboration will greatly contribute to our goal of drastically reducing emissions by bringing efficient and highly differentiated clean energy options for mobility.
