Record number of TRIAXYS with Currents buoy sales

March 8, 2010

Sidney, BC Canada

AXYS Technologies Inc. is pleased to announce a record number of TRIAXYS with Currents buoy sales in the last two months. TRIAXYS™ with Currents buoys offer their users the ability to measure currents and waves from a single device, receive data in near real time using a variety of telemetry options, and flexibility to deploy into in various water depths.  Two recent wins are highlighted below.

The European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), through AXYS’ UK agent Planet Ocean, has recently purchased 3 TRIAXYS™ with Currents buoys for monitoring at their intermediate scale test sites in the Orkney Islands.  These buoys will be deployed in 20 to 30 metres of water and will transmit hourly wave and current data to a single receiving station on land. The data will then be used by EMEC to give them an understanding of current marine conditions around scaled energy test devices.

DHI Group in Denmark has purchased 5 TRIAXYS™ with Currents buoys.  Three of these buoys will be deployed near the London Array Offshore Wind Farm and 2 will be deployed near the Walney Offshore Wind farm.  In both projects the TRIAXYS™ with Currents buoys will be used to assist forecasting and operations in and around the wind farms.

AXYS Field Service Specialists will conduct training and commissioning in the UK on these systems.  Training will commence in March 2010 and deployments will continue through Spring 2010.

Terms of the above sales have not been disclosed.

EMEC is at the forefront of the development of marine-based renewable technologies that generate electricity for homes and businesses by harnessing the power of waves and tidal streams. As the first centre of its kind to be created anywhere in the world, EMEC offers developers the opportunity to test full scale grid connected prototype devices in unrivalled wave and tidal conditions.
