It also supplies solar systems and has a new product line called Solar Energy Storage, which will be released to the market in the second quarter of 2013.

The group is expected to report a turnover of circa €3.0m and to break even in operating profits for last year.

The integration of the SPower is anticipated to result in cost synergies of about €200,000 per annum, but to increase turnover to €5.0m.

"As a company, we can importantly offer complete systems to our customers. The new battery storage solution of SPower for solar systems will have an extremely positive impact on our business. The process optimisation and cost savings will also have positive effects and will enhance value for our shareholders."
