Dominovas Energy Corporation (OTCQB: DNRG), an energy solutions company dedicated to delivering clean, efficient, and reliable electricity to areas of the world that lack this precious commodity, announces the completion of a Concept Design Study for the efficient manufacturing of its proprietary RUBICON™ Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) system.

Commissioned and led by Dominovas Energy Executive Vice President of Fuel Cell Operations Dr. Shamiul Islam in concert with AVL List GmbH (AVL), the Concept Study detailed and documented the scalable design for a multi-megawatt SOFC system specific to electrical efficiency, size, reliability, and control strategy to create a first-of-its-kind, state-of-the-art, precision-engineered system exclusively for Dominovas Energy. With the goal of supplying clean, reliable, commercially-viable, and sustainable energy solutions to millions of sub-Saharan Africans, Dominovas Energy has now identified the design, engineering, and logistical opportunities pertaining to the unprecedented building of a multi-megawatt utility scale system for commercial production of RUBICON™.

The Concept Study identified the technical aspects of the RUBICON™, including the balance-of-plant (BoP) and power electronics. Additionally, the study identified optimal process design efficiencies, BoP components, stack and system design, control systems, power electronics integration, manufacturing and logistics, as well as aggregate cost and lead-time for the manufacturing of its scalable system.

AVL's Project Manager of Fuel Cell Systems Dr. Martin Hauth comments, "The results of this study offer a roadmap and confirm the technical feasibility of the 'commercialization' of the multi-MW modular RUBICON™ power generation technology. We are very excited to enter into the next phase of system commercialization for deployment with Dominovas Energy."

Dr. Islam enthusiastically explained the process. "Building a mega-watt class SOFC system required a fresh and sustainable approach to address and overcome the engineering challenges for the overall system development. I am excited with our result. This proprietary study serves as a viable and venerable cornerstone upon which the manufacturing and commercialization process can proceed."

With the completion of this important and unprecedented study, Dominovas Energy will now enter the next level of detailed design, engineering, and manufacturing of its multi-MW systems to realize the promise of supplying multi-MW power to sub-Saharan Africa, as contracted.
