Firadec to Represent Evans Capacitor Throughout Continental Europe

The Evans Capacitor Company, leading manufacturer of advanced supercapacitors for aviation and aerospace concludes agreement with European capacitor manufacturer.

East Providence, Rhode Island, USA, January 28, 2008 - The Evans Capacitor Company, designer and manufacturer of the most advanced energy-dense capacitors for aviation and aerospace, has engaged a respected European firm to represent it in Europe.

Evans Capacitor Company Hybrid® supercapacitors are used by NASA, Allied Signal, BAE Systems, Cubic Defense, Eglin AFB, Fibertek, General Dynamics, Hamilton Sundstrand, Litton Laser, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Raytheon, Rockwell, and the Department of Energy.

Because Evans; Hybrid® capacitors are small, lightweight, and very powerful, they are specified in most advanced aircraft, including the F35 Joint Strike Fighter and the Apache Arrowhead helicopter.

The hermetic seal Evans Hybrid capacitor, conbining properties of electrolytic and electrochemical capacitors, has a voltage rating of 10 to 125 volts. The capacitance value range is 100uF to 100mF. They are often used in banks, broadening its applications for poower supply, riding through power interruptions, high current power filtering, power factor correction, and pulse power.

Evans Capacitor Company will be represented by Rene Terrien of Firadec, with offices in Zone industrielle de Brais, St.-Nazaire, France. (Phone +33 2 40 01 26 51, e.mail Representing a full line of capacitors, he brings a breadth of experience to capacitor design and selection.

"This is an exciting development for Firadec," said Mr. Terrien. "These capacitors are formidable, better than anything comparable in Europe. We are amazed that these Hybrids are in use around the world."
