mattjos: gives us an indication as to how long it is taking from initial order thru to first repeat order. On this occasion they are using a Relion fuel cell rather than a Ballard cell so, strengthening the ACTA+Relion/Plug partnership and highlighting the interoperability of their electrolyser. ".....power for the back-up system was generated entirely from solar photovoltaic cells completely independent of the mains power grid." That is a fact not to be overlooked, imo & hence why they have emphasised it. Arguably its irrelevant what the application is for the product .. what's more relevant is that it once again demonstrates the suitability of the ACTA technology to utilise a renewable energy source as the means to power their electrolyser, create the Hydrogen & store it for the point in time when it is needed to power the fuel cell for localised energy generation. Such a pity the solar projects in Italy got canned as a result of the financial crisis else ACTA would be sat on a network of solar parks from which they could be creating Hydrogen to have given Italy a huge head-start in the adoption of FCEV's ... but, never mind. That was all terrific experience for ACTA and will serve them well now as they bid to enter the FCEV market later this year. No reason I can see why they cannot soon demonstrate a scaled up system for the provision of Hydrogen to enable refuelling for FCEV's .. be that in Australia or anywhere else in the world. The ability to power that by intermittent renewables is also a terrific selling point. Despite a weak patch in the share price, the strategy is coming together

speedsgh: New Equity Development research note out - HTTP:// Further evidence for the acceptance of Acta's hydrogen technology platform is demonstrated by the announcement today of the repeat order for fifteen 500L/h modular rack-mounted electrolysers from M-Field Energy Ltd, following the sale of six similar systems in October 2013. The units are scheduled for delivery over the next two months. M-Field has also ordered a number of smaller electrolysers from Acta which are due for shipment soon. Taiwan-based M-Field has had a strong presence in the fuel cell market for the past ten years as a system integrator, with an acknowledged capability in telecoms back-up power systems, supplying operators in Asia and elsewhere. The back-up units from M-Field integrates Acta's electrolyser with Ballard 2kW fuel cell stacks. M-Field ordered around 200 of these 2kW units earlier this year. Acta also provides an update on the live on-site evaluations by telecoms companies of Acta Power (the rechargeable fuel cell back-up power system). Acta has sold Acta Power systems to operators for these evaluations, with two having been completed successfully, two in progress and the fifth awaiting start-up. These evaluations can be expected to lead to larger network trials involving up to 50 units per trial. This announcement highlights the transition of Acta from an early stage development company to a full scale production one, and the company is gearing up its staffing and facility to support this. We expect this exciting phase of the company's growth to be underpinned by positive news flow that will lead to a positive re-rating for the share. We maintain our forecasts and view of significant undervaluation. As stated in our last note (March, 2014) on a comparison with the value of US fuel cell sector valuations and further positive order flow, Acta could attract a market capitalisation of Euro 42m, or £35.3m. This would represent 21p per share.
mattjos: New moderated thread for investors in the company Acta S.p.A. An Italian technology transfer company specialising in the commercially viable onsite production of Hydrogen by utilising its unique, patented, non precious-metal, Alkaline Electrode Membrane. The company listed on AIM in October 2005, issuing 7.2m shares @ £1.25. It then followed the normal path for a hi-tech company, using its funding to develop its IP, while the Share price fell. The credit crunch and associated broader market collapse saw a low of circa 4p in the summer of 2009, at which point the company first started to see commercial interest in its water electrolysers as fuel cell 'rechargers' & embarked on the trade show route to help drive market awareness. In March 2010 the company announced a JV with SPF Energy for the installation of large scale photovoltaic parks in Italy to exploit the generous govt. funded feed-in tariffs on offer. This was a complimentary diversification as renewable energy can be used as the energy source to electrolyse water and store energy in the form of Hydrogen. The shares moved ahead to over 70p in the subsequent 15 months. Unfortunately, by the end of 2010 the Italian solar feed-in tariffs were axed as part of Italy's recovery from the financial crisis and, through no fault of their own, ACTA was forced to pull out of the venture. Shares fell back to the 4p level by June 2012. However, the company has never stopped it's R&D of the core electrolyser IP & by summer 2012 was experiencing increasing number of enquiries from the Telco & StandBy power sectors, as fuel cell adoption rates started to increase globally & the need for Hydrogen generation at/close to point-of-use increased in line, particularly in off-grid or bad-grid locations. The company has quickly responded by increasing the capacity of its electrolysers & producing them in a rack-mounted modular format. In April 2013, it went one step further and launched its own ACTA Power unit, combining fuel cells from JupiterE (based on the Ballard stack) with its own electrolysers & quickly sold early evaluation units to several Telco companies. This is a significant landmark for the company, as it is no longer solely reliable on the sales efforts of other third party system integrators & can front-up to end users with its own product, manufactured in-house. The company is continuing to quickly scale up the size of its product and in H2 2014 it will move up to the much larger scale P2G and FCEV refuelling markets. Detractors, up until 2012/13, may have reasonably argued that the company had developed technology & IP for which no perceivable commercial market existed. However, the broader global adoption of fuel cells as reliable and cost-effective means of providing standby power for applications such as mobile phone base-stations, computer installations and continuous power for forklift trucks, electric scooters and ultimately Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) is rapidly increasing the requirement for the production of Hydrogen & so too is the necessity to find a storage medium for the intermittent nature of energy production from renewables such that it can match grid requirements when the wind isn't blowing and sun isn't shining. Much of this will be produced by the large gas companies such as Air Liquide & Linde but, there is a clear, significant and growing opportunity for distributed Hydrogen production .. & this is where ACTA is positioned. The number of Market Makers has increased in the stock over the last 18 months and there are now 9. Liquidity has also improved with approx 1m shares traded daily. NMS increased at start of April 2014 from 10,000 to 20,000 shares. This has also resulted in much narrower spread between Buy & Sell price - down to 0.25p now, from 1p two years ago. (So, don't get sucked in on days when the MM's widen the spread beyond 0.25p is my advice).

ajlinton: Acta SpA This year's breakthrough act(a) The preliminary results are broadly in line with our expectations, and indicate Acta's strengthening position in the fuel cell sector. However, we expect a step-function change in Acta's performance as the significant opportunity pipeline is realised over the next 24 months and beyond. We believe that Acta's unique electrolyser technology is emerging as the most versatile, robust and cost-effective solution for generating hydrogen on-site for fuel cells. Evidence is growing worldwide that the economics of fuel cells are now attractive for a number of multi-million US$ applications. There is a strong message coming from the US market, evidenced by the dramatic valuation enhancements seen in the leading hydrogen fuel cell players, that the technology is at last commercial – particularly for applications like back-up power for telecommunications, fuel cell vehicles and renewable energy storage. In all cases, a ready supply of hydrogen is essential, which is where many systems face logistical challenges, especially in remote areas. Acta's innovative, unique technology platform, with its robust, lower cost electrolyser, enables fuel cells to deliver solutions without the need for cumbersome fuel logistics, and can be considered uniquely fit for purpose. The results for the year to 31 December 2013 show a healthy increase in revenues from product sales, which grew by 163% from Euro 151k in 2012 to Euro 397k. Total revenues for 2013 stood at Euro 411k (2012: Euro 261k, excluding Euro 175k discontinued activities). Increasing sales and the higher average selling prices achieved over the period underscore the rising level of validation for Acta's technology, further underlined by the 50% repeat order rate the company is experiencing. The operating loss of Euro 1.1m (2012: Euro 3.1m loss) includes the Euro 2.4m share option cost reversal discussed previously. In October 2013 the company raised Euro 2.1m gross from investors, and at year's close the company had Euro 2.1m cash, which should support operations well into the year. Our expectations for 2014 and 2015 reflect the successful commercial launch of the Acta Power self-refuelling hydrogen battery, which has performed well in trials and demonstrations, and has gained CE Certification. Five Acta Power units have been sold, and the device is the subject of negotiations for network evaluations involving 50 to 150 units per customer. We expect the current year to be the breakthrough year for Acta, and the current share price does not reflect this. Taking a lead from the US fuel cell sector valuations, a share price move to 21p would not be inappropriate.
