UPS Systems to supply low-cost hydrogen fuel cell generator package
Apr 21, 2010 Comments (0)
As Hymera produces no emissions apart from water vapour, it can provide clean, quiet electricity for a host of applications including high efficiency lighting, instrumentation, security cameras, power tools and many other low power consumption products. There are no installation costs as the fuel cell is a direct plug and play solution; users can simply connect a hydrogen cylinder, plug in the equipment and switch on the fuel cell.
Our goal has been to drive down production costs to make hydrogen fuel cells more affordable for businesses across the UK and build some critical mass, said Nick Rolf, Business Development Manager - Innovation at BOC. With UPS Systems knowledge of the market and experience of commercial fuel cell deployment, we expect to see customers across several industries begin to replace traditional generators with Hymera.
UPS Systems Managing Director Tom Sperrey commented: We first showcased the Hymera 150w hydrogen fuel cell generator at the Grove Symposium in September where it received a great deal of interest. It is an important product because it has the potential to introduce a completely new audience to the benefits of fuel cell technology, which will help to further overcome the barriers to widespread adoption.
The fuel cell has an estimated retail price of 1,995 ex. VAT and is available only from UPS Systems and BOC.
