So far, 2014 had been an eventful one for Plug Power Inc (NASDAQ:PLUG). At the end of February, the company announced a new contract with Wal-Mart for the supply of 1,738 GenDrive fuel cell units along with providing infrastructure and fueling services to six of Wal-Mart’s distribution centers. Wal-Mart has been a client of Plug Power since 2007, but the recent contract is a big one. This was the biggest single order ever received by the company from a single client. Also, during the fourth quarter conference call, CEO Andy Marsh stated that the company had received its first order from a big automobile manufacturer, which further lifted investor’s sentiment on the prospects of company’s fuel cell systems, although this statement was later clarified.
