VYCON's VDC Flywheel System Awarded Most Sustainable Product by Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo

Flywheel Technology Offers a Reliable, Green Energy Solution to Healthcare Facilities

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 5, 2009) - VYCON (www.vyconenergy.com), the designer and manufacturer of environmentally friendly, high-speed energy storage flywheel systems, today announced that its VDC flywheel system has been honored by Healthcare Facilities with the Most Sustainable Product award for their 2009 Symposium Distinction Awards. VYCON was recognized for this achievement Wednesday, September 30th, 2009 at the Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo during the awards ceremony. The event was held at the Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois.

VYCON's clean energy storage systems protect critical computer servers, diagnostic equipment and electronic medical records against costly and damaging power problems. VYCON's VDC flywheel system provides backup power that is fast, reliable, predictable and seamless. Unlike traditional battery-based power backup systems, the VDC has a 20-year lifespan, is low-maintenance and maintains a much smaller carbon footprint with no requirement for expensive cooling, hazardous materials or disposal issues. This makes the flywheel the most reliable and cost-effective "bridge" to a generator during a power failure.

"The Symposium Distinction Awards competition continues to grow each year, so for the 2009 competition our panel of judges had their work cut out for them! We were thrilled to present the Most Sustainable product award to VYCON. Their excellent work was selected from among many quality entrants as the best of the best," said Jenabeth Ferguson, Event Director, Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo.

"Hospitals and healthcare facility data centers around the globe are implementing measures to reduce their carbon footprint and our VDC clean energy storage system helps our customers meet their green goals while protecting their budgets," said Frank DeLattre, President of VYCON. "We're honored to be recognized by Healthcare Facilities Symposium & Expo for our innovative VDC Direct Connect UPS system that provides our customers with a reliable and sustainable solution to backup power. We're proud that our environmentally-friendly flywheel solution plays a significant role in the greening of healthcare facilities while improving critical power system reliability and providing a return on investment."

VYCON is an innovator in the design and manufacturing of technologically advanced flywheel energy storage systems that enable a highly reliable, cost-effective and "green" energy storage solution for a variety of applications. Key to VYCON's flywheel superiority and dependability is its ability to discharge and recharge very quickly when called upon during power outages. VYCON's fleet of VDC, VDC-XE and REGEN systems have logged a record million-plus discharge and recharge cycles -- in very demanding applications that oftentimes call on the VYCON systems to discharge and recharge every two minutes.
