Hybrid Power Solutions and Altrasav Forge Strategic Partnership to Expand Distribution into Nigeria

Vancouver, British Columbia – May 7, 2024 – Hybrid Power Solutions Inc. (CSE: HPSS) (OTC: HPSIF) (FSE:E092) (“Hybrid” or the “Company”) a leading provider of sustainable energy solutions, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Altrasav, a technology-oriented distribution company based in Nigeria. The partnership, marked by the signing of a Letter of Intent (LOI), aims to expand the distribution of HPS products into Nigeria’s burgeoning market.

Supported by the Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) of the Canadian Embassy, this collaboration presents an opportunity to establish new business relationships and break boundaries where HPS products are critically needed. This partnership underscores HPS’s commitment to providing innovative energy solutions and addressing the pressing challenges faced by communities in Nigeria.

Andrew Oginni, CEO of Altrasav Limited, expressed enthusiasm for the collaboration, stating, “We have proudly served the Nigerian market with innovative products for 20 years. We are excited to partner with Hybrid Power to bring their unique hybrid alternate power solutions to the Nigerian market. We feel that we can make meaningful change in the public’s health, safety, prosperity, and education by providing reliable power.” A letter of intent for $2 million CAD has been received from Altrasav Limited for the purchase of Hybrid Power Solutions equipment for the Nigerian market.

Francois Byrne, CEO of Hybrid, echoed Oginni’s sentiments, emphasizing the transformative potential of the partnership. “At Hybrid Power Solutions, we are excited about the opportunity to partner with Altrasav and leverage their expertise to bring our sustainable energy solutions to Nigeria. This partnership reflects our dedication to providing reliable and efficient energy solutions that empower communities and drive sustainable development.”

Nigeria, with its rapidly growing population and pressing energy needs, presents a unique opportunity for clean energy solutions. According to Nigeria Multidimensional Poverty Index (MPI) 2022, lack of energy is a part contributor to the approximately 133 million multi-dimensionally poor Nigerians. The limited grid capacity plagued by infrastructural challenges requires an urgent need for alternative energy sources.

“This partnership goes beyond market expansion,” added Byrne. “It represents an opportunity to address critical needs in areas such as healthcare, security, education, and agriculture. Our products can provide stable power supply to primary healthcare facilities, support security operations, enhance educational opportunities, and boost agricultural productivity in rural areas. Nigeria, being the largest economy in Africa and with Altrasav’s dominance and expertise in the sector, this partnership will be a gateway for expansion to other African countries”.

As part of the partnership, representatives from Hybrid have travelled to Nigeria to establish the partnership and meet with key stakeholders and potential clients, including the Ministry of Aviation, Nigerian Defence Chief of Staff, National Security Advisors, Nigeria Police Force, National Assembly, European Union Organization of Nigeria and Abuja national hospital.

With this partnership, Hybrid and Altrasav are poised to make a meaningful impact in Nigeria’s transition to clean energy and contribute to the country’s sustainable development goals.
