Calgary, Canada, April 7, 2015 - Simark Controls Ltd, a company of SFC Energy AG, has announced today that it will sell and service Schneider Electric Telemetry & Remote SCADA Solutions (TRSS) products in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Yukon and Northwest Territories. Product lines include SCADAPack, RealFLO, RealLIFT, 4000 Series Transmitters, Trio Radios, and Accutech Sensors. Sales in the mid single-digit million Canadian dollar range are expected to come from this partnership in 2015.

Simark and SFC Energy expect significant synergies to come from this extension of the Simark product portfolio. Telemetry & Remote SCADA Solutions require reliable off-grid power. For this application Simark offers a range of integrated, fully autonomous power supply solutions based on SFC Energy's popular EFOY Pro fuel cells.

Telemetry & Remote SCADA Solutions (TRSS) enable operators to efficiently monitor and control field equipment and operations across widely dispersed infrastructures. Applications range from simple reservoir level measurement in the water and waste water industries to complex well pad optimisation and other production based processes in the oil & gas industry.

"Schneider Electric is specialised in Telemetry and SCADA systems to monitor and control field operations and manage critical infrastructure systems", said Elias Panasuik, Process Automation Sales Manager West Region, Schneider Electric Canada. "Our business relationship with Simark Controls has reached new strengths and we are excited to have this agreement in place. Simark Controls already offers our Foxboro Measurement and Instrumentation products. The TRSS product portfolio will expand this offering. Simark Controls' proven track records of delivering world class customer support service and solutions will position us closer to our end users."

Mark Wheeler, President of Simark Controls said, "Our strength at Simark Controls is our commitment for high quality products, solutions and services to meet the requirements of our customers in the oil & gas industry. With the TRSS product line we are now able to expand our offering."

"We are proud to have closed this sales and service agreement with Schneider Electric. Based on this powerful business partnership we will be able to expand sales of integrated SCADA solutions and off-grid energy systems in the oil and gas as well as other vertical markets", added Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG.

Leveraging a proven track record in a wide range of industries and expertise in the areas of instrumentation, control and data acquisition, wireless communication and IT, Schneider Electric, Telemetry and Remote SCADA Solutions can help make the most of remote operations and assets.
