"We are very excited to be working with General Hydrogen on this project," said Hydrogenics" President and CEO, Pierre Rivard. "As co-members of the General Motors alliance of fuel cell commercialization companies, we have been looking forward to the opportunity to bring our technologies together in a collaborative project. Clearly, the recent success that we experienced with the introduction of our 20 kW HyPM-LP(2) is yielding opportunities to expand our partnerships and broaden our applications expertise in emerging fuel cell markets."
"This new generation of fuel cell power modules will help us accelerate the introduction of our hydrogen technology in the industrial vehicle and distributed generation markets -- the first markets where fuel cells make good business sense," noted Geoffrey Ballard, Chair of General Hydrogen.
The 10 kW HyPM-LP(2) fuel cell power module is targeted at light vehicle and power generation applications. It has been developed without major re-design of Hydrogenics" current baseline technology, whereas the two generations of HyPM technology that preceded the "low pressure, low profile" HYPM-LP(2) design underwent major modifications in configuration and components, in an effort to simplify the design and reduce the parts count. This LP2 design has translated into higher efficiencies, lower costs, smaller size and improved manufacturability. Performance and durability testing to date has reinforced that the current design is "state-of-the-art" and is suited for production in low-volume quantities.
The new power module is being exhibited today at Hydrogenics" Investor & Analyst Day event in New York City along with other examples of Hydrogenics products and core technologies.
