Eguana Technologies to Partner with Global Contract Manufacturing Firm for Bi-Direx Production in Germany and California

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 29, 2015) - Eguana Technologies Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EGT) ("Eguana" or the Company"), a leading supplier of power control and conversion solutions for edge of grid energy storage systems, announced today that has signed a letter of intent to partner with Asteelflash (, a global supplier of electronics manufacturing services ("EMS"), to manufacture Eguana's patented Bi-Direx power control and conversion system and its innovative AC Batteries in Germany and in California.

"The partnership with Asteelflash will deliver lower manufactured costs of Bi-Direx systems in Germany, and will position us in California to begin shipping 'made in California' AC Batteries that will enable energy storage system aggregators to access higher incentives for domestically manufactured products," commented Justin Holland, COO of Eguana. "With 19 facilities on 4 continents - Europe, America, Asia and Africa - along with engineering and support services, Asteelflash is the perfect sized partner as we execute our global plan. Their quality programs are excellent and they will provide manufacturing warranties that will become central to our bankability strategy in the U.S."

Eguana has already shipped Bi-Direx power control systems for more than 4,000 energy storage systems, a number that is growing at a rate of more than 400 per month. The Company expects to transition manufacturing later this summer in Germany to serve the residential solar self-consumption applications in Europe; and in California as it begins to ramp production of AC Batteries for networked residential applications and for the commercial demand charge response market in California and other states.

In 2008, Asteel acquired Flash Electronics, located in the United States and China. Asteelflash Group is created with one key location in Fremont, California.
