LUMIBIRD wins new €20M Megajoule laser order

Date Announced: 03 Jul 2018

LES ULIS, France -- The LUMIBIRD Group (Paris:LBIRD) has announced that it has received an order from the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) for over €20m, with delivery over the next four years, in line with the Megajoule schedule.

After 13 years focused on developing and manufacturing the first series, the MPA preamplifier module developed by LUMIBIRD has met all the requirements set, with the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) placing the second of two series of orders that will make it possible to equip all of the Megajoule’s 22 laser chains.

LUMIBIRD is particularly proud to have successfully completed the development, pre-series and series phases on this project, in cooperation with the teams from the CEA, especially considering the technical challenges that needed to be overcome in order to deliver the performance capabilities demanded.

Marc Le Flohic, LUMIBIRD CEO, reviews this success: “This achievement on a major national program highlights the LUMIBIRD Group’s ability to deploy its ambitious strategy for lasers and applications. LUMIBIRD aims to capitalize on this technical and industrial success to consolidate its position as an international market leader for very high value-added laser sources”.

Next date: 2018 first-half revenues on July 27, 2018 (before start of trading)
