Ocean Power Technologies Reaches Agreement in Principle for Delivery of Multiple Unmanned Surface Vehicles to US Government

Ocean Power Technologies, a leader in innovative and cost-effective low-carbon marine power, data, and service solutions, today announced it has reached an agreement in principle on a sole source contract award for multiple WAM-Vs for delivery to a Department of the US Government. The final contract award will be a Firm-Fixed-Price purchase order on a noncompetitive basis.

Revenue will be recognized ratably over the course of the contract with an expected near-term delivery date. Due to the sensitive nature of this relationship, terms have not been disclosed.

This award builds on the recent commercial success of OPT’s vehicles and PowerBuoys for autonomous Maritime Domain Awareness, Counter Unmanned Underwater Vehicles, and Mine Counter Measure Solutions in North America, Sub Saharan Africa, and the Middle East.

Philipp Stratmann, CEO and President of OPT, expressed his enthusiasm about this revenue generating contract, stating, "We believe this agreement is further proof that our systems form an important part of building out the future of ocean security. Using small Unmanned Surface Vehicles, like our WAM-V, is a cost-efficient force multiplier for the US Government and other offshore operators. The dual use nature of our technologies enables us to provide systems to a broad set of customers.”
