saft groupe sa (S1A) Key Developments

Saft Wins a Contracts to Supply Some Five Million Eternacell Branded Cells Original Equipment Manufacturers

Saft announced that it had won contracts to supply some five million Eternacell branded cells to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for electricity metering projects in China, India and Taiwan. The contracts concern supply of Saft's Eternacell ER 14250 product. The Eternacell brand is developed specifically for utility metering applications in emerging economies, the group said. They have been designed to power real-time microprocessor clock and memory backup functions for new generation of electricity meters. The batteries are being produced at Saft's Zhuhai China facility.

Saft Wins Around $10 Million Energy Storage Order for Critical Off-Grid Solar Powered Systems Serving Dukhan Oilfield

Saft has been awarded around $10 million contract by Kentz to supply its Sunica.plus batteries for critical solar powered systems serving Qatar Petroleum's Dukhan oilfield. Over the next two years, some 40,000 of the nickel-based Sunica.plus batteries will be deployed at around 775 wells across the oilfield, where they will provide energy storage and backup power for wellhead industrial control systems and corrosion protection systems. Kentz is currently working on a $190 million contract for Qatar Petroleum to provide a dedicated Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) network infrastructure to monitor the 775 wellheads in the Dukhan Oilfield from designated stations. Kentz's scope of work also includes the prevention of external corrosion damage to the oilfield's well casings by installing an impressed current cathodic protection system. The SCADA network and the corrosion protection systems will be powered by solar photovoltaic (PV) panels working in combination with the Sunica.plus batteries to provide the essential energy storage and backup power to ensure their total continuity of operation. Saft has developed the Sunica.plus battery specifically for this type of stand alone, off-grid solar installation, where its robust nickel-based construction and high cycling capability ensures long life and low maintenance requirements, even when subjected to erratic charging conditions and operating temperatures fluctuating from - 20 °C to + 50 °C.

Saft Groupe Announces Executive Changes

The members of Saft Groupe's Supervisory Board are announced the appointment of Ghislain Lescuyer to the position of Chairman of the Management Board. Ghislain Lescuyer has been a member of Saft Groupe's Supervisory Board for the last 10 years and Chairman of its Strategy and Technologies Committee, and has worked closely with the current management team. He is now Senior Vice President of the Alstom Group in charge of Information Systems and Technology. He will begin in this new role on May 4, 2015. Bruno Dathis, Group Financial Director, has been acting Chairman of the Management Board, since John Searle's sudden death in September last year and will continue in this role until that date.
