NEW YORK, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners (CIP), on behalf of Copenhagen Infrastructure Fund IV, is pleased to announce that it has sold its 100% ownership interest in the Travers Solar project to a fund managed by Axium Infrastructure.

Located about 130 km south of Calgary in Alberta, Canada, Travers has a total capacity of 465 MWac / 691 MWdc and is the largest non-hydro renewable energy asset in Canada. The project, which represents CIP’s first investment in Canada, started construction in March 2021 and reached commercial operations in November 2022. Today, Travers delivers clean energy to more than 100,000 households in Alberta, Canada.

“Travers has proved not only a valuable asset but also a significant driver in Canada’s transition to renewable energy. The sale of Travers is evidence of the value created by CIP during the development, financing, and construction phases of this marquee renewable energy asset. The consummation of this transaction advances CIP’s commitment to a sustainable future,” says Tim Evans, Partner, and Head of North America at CIP.

The transaction closed earlier this week after receiving regulatory and other customary closing conditions and approvals.

CIBC Capital Markets acted as exclusive financial advisor to CIP on the sale and as joint bookrunner and mandated lead arranger on the project financing. Norton Rose Fulbright acted as legal advisor to CIP.

Hydrogen Tech DCARB Receives Series A Funding: How Doing Good for the Planet Can Also Be Very Good for Business

DCARB is lowering transportation fleets fuel consumption by on average 5 to 15% with no upfront Capex.

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DCARB, which operates in the booming Hydrogen and Decarbonisation sectors, has received VC funding from the Canadian merchant banking firm Caerus Capital. HYDROFLEX (via their brand DCARB) has secured a significant position as a leading solution provider in the Decarbonisation and Carbon Emission reduction sectors through its breakthrough patented hydrogen technology.

DCARB successfully opened their first U.S. outlet in 2020 in Las Vegas and has seen U.S. trucking fleets achieve remarkable results in lowering their diesel consumption by 5-15% and reducing emission issues by up to 75%.

Matt Bailey, CEO of DCARB, said, “The partnership and attached funding with Caerus will allow us to rapidly bring our new technology to market along with the expansion of our patented Arc Plasma technology. The funding allows us to immediately progress our work with the world’s largest engine operators across all Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) sectors from locomotives to marine.”

Rob Shewchuk, Director of Caerus Capital, commented, “We are excited to join forces with DCARB. Their technology is ready to assist companies that want to reduce their carbon footprint and fuel consumption now. DCARB management has a clear vision on where they are going, and we are excited to see DCARB become a major service partner for large transportation companies in the decades ahead.”

Bailey continued: “As a direct result of the funding, DCARB are currently negotiating with a number of U.S. diesel servicing companies, with large national footprints, to assist in spreading the innovative hydrogen technology to allow all operators of diesel engines to benefit from both reducing their carbon emissions and reducing operating costs.

“We are extremely excited to be contributing to the global emission reductions. Worldwide there are over two billion internal combustion engines, and applying our technology can make a real difference in global emissions right now. We know zero emissions will take some time, but we have a solution, which will help fleets now save money, cut emissions and keep existing assets on the road until new tech is here. In essence, we have created a technology that allows companies to bridge the gap while saving money and cutting emissions.

“The global demand to reduce carbon emissions, and with the current cost of diesel, has opened the door to a remarkable opportunity. We offer companies our technology with no upfront Capex, making it cashflow-positive from day one.”

DCARB stated they have initiated a number of significant partnerships throughout the U.S., Australia, Philippines and Egypt to assist with Bus Fleets, Truck Fleets, Rail Fleets, Ferry Fleets, Shipping Fleets and the Power Generation sectors.

Baily said, “This is really just the tip of the iceberg with the rapid uptake of our hydrogen solutions as a brilliant tool to assist across Decarbonisation, Cost Reduction and Carbon Emission Reduction for the benefit of both individual companies and, importantly, the environment.”

ABOUT HYDROFLEX:

HYDROFLEX specializes in hydrogen-enhanced combustion solutions that deliver fuel savings and emission reduction benefits for a global market of internal combustion engines, from the smallest cars to the largest engines on the market today.

With a world-class research and development program that exceeds industry standards, HYDROFLEX delivers ongoing innovation in the green-energy space.

AttackForge Launches Version 2 – Redefining Pentesting for the Future

Market leader introduces the next generation in Pentest Management Platforms.

AttackForge

MELBOURNE, Australia, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — AttackForge®, a global leader in Pentest Management solutions, has announced today the general availability of AttackForge Version 2 for Enterprise and Core products.

“Built entirely from the ground up, AttackForge Version 2 is our vision for the future of pentesting,” said Fil Filiposki, Co-Founder of AttackForge.

AttackForge brings industry workflows into a collaboration platform made for engineering, security, and business teams. AttackForge Version 2 builds upon its predecessor to enable more efficient scaling of pentesting to deal with the rising need for penetration testing.

“Just imagine how many vulnerabilities were found but not fixed, until organisations get hacked. Why? Because pentesting is an archaic process. Vulnerabilities are sitting in PDF reports, completely disconnected from the people who would need to fix them. AttackForge brings security and engineering teams to the same place, enabling them to collaborate, track and fix – before proverbial hits the fan,” said Stas Filshtinskiy, Co-Founder of AttackForge.

AttackForge Version 2 helps enterprises manage complex security testing programs and reduce risk by communicating vulnerabilities to engineering teams in real-time, as they get discovered by pentesters. Better management of vulnerabilities means a reduction of cyber risks. Faster remediation means a faster time to market.

“Over the past few years, our team has been working intimately with our customers, learning how they do penetration testing. Having insight into many of the largest organisations around the world, including some of the global consultancies and Fortune 500, we have unique perspectives on workflows that will enable and power the next generation of penetration testing. And we’re excited to build those perspectives into AttackForge Version 2,” said Filiposki.

At the time of release, AttackForge is the only pentest management platform currently available on the market that can be deployed on-demand in a dedicated tenant.

“We’re making AttackForge Version 2 accessible to all, placing it within reach of any engineering team, cyber security consultancy or enterprise, starting at $300 per month,” said Filshtinskiy.

AttackForge Version 2 can be deployed today from https://buy.attackforge.io.

You can find more information on AttackForge Version 2 for Enterprise here, and for Core here.
