Through a contract with Honeywell, REV will participate in the U.S. Army Tank Automotive Research Development Engineering Center (TARDEC) Micro-Grid project at Wheeler Air Base, Hawaii.
The project involves the design, building and demonstration of a Micro-Grid with plug-in electric vehicles to determine the technical readiness of Micro-Grids to accept power from various inputs while charging the selected vehicles and provide output power to various applications in both alternating and direct current systems.
The contract represents important revenue to REV, who expects current year revenues to increase by 400% over last year.
Comments REV CEO Jay Giraud, "This is an important milestone for REV. The US Military is one of many federal partners we have been pursuing that manage the largest fleets in the world. With these vehicles in operation we can build case studies that demonstrate the viability and ROI for such game-changing technologies."
Michael Volker, Chairman of GreenAngel and REV board member comments, "We couldn’t be more pleased with the progress REV has made since we got involved in late 2009. With the addition of key partners such as Honeywell, and a ready demonstration platform like the US Army, the potential of this first project to expand into a much larger deployment is exciting."
