Fuel Cell Power Generation Systems Shipped Out by Ballard

Press Release
Thursday, September 27, 2012

Canada's Ballard Power Systems ships Initial 100 ElectraGen™ Systems for backup power in wireless telecom networks.

The company's first 100 ElectraGenTM fuel cell power generation systems have been shipped to Cascadiant Inc. and Inala Technologies, Ballard distributors in Southeast Asia and South Africa, respectively.

These are the first 100 systems shipped subsequent to a recent transaction through which Ballard acquired select assets from IdaTech, a Ballard customer for the past several years. The systems are comprised of both direct hydrogen ElectraGenTM-H2 units as well as methanol fuelled ElectraGenTM-ME units and are planned for deployment in the networks of wireless telecom service providers.

ElectraGenTM-ME systems incorporate a fuel reformer to extract hydrogen from HydroPlusTM, a mixture of methanol and water available from accredited suppliers around the world. The hydrogen is then used as feedstock for the fuel cells. Methanol is a readily available fuel around the globe, making ElectraGenTM-ME a practical solution for backup power needs even in remote locations.

Ballard's portfolio of highly reliable fuel cell power generation systems provides more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly solutions for 'short duration runtime' and 'extended duration runtime' backup power applications than the alternatives of lead-acid batteries and diesel generators.

Ballard Power Systems provides clean energy fuel cell products enabling optimized power systems for a range of applications. Products deliver incomparable performance, durability and versatility.
