By Julian Buckley14 January 2022
Ballard Power Systems has revealed it has received an order for 31 hydrogen fuel cell units, totalling 3 MW of power.
The company involved in the order is said to be ‘a leading global construction, electric power and off-road equipment manufacturer’. No company name was given and the value of the deal was not released.
With delivery across 2022 and 2023, the modules will undergo testing and deployment across a variety of end-use applications.
The orders include delivery of Ballard’s new FCmove -HD+ engines, which was launched in late 2021. The FCmove -HD+ is said to be more compact and efficient than previous generations.
This is anticipated to reduce total cost of ownership, making it a competitive solution for medium- and heavy-duty applications.
Speaking about the deal, Randy MacEwen, Ballard president and CEO, said: “Our latest FCmove -HD+ demonstrates a significant improvement in our technology and highlights the pace at which our fuel cells are advancing and supporting the market need for zero-emission solutions.
“We are excited with increased customer and end-user engagement to decarbonize heavy-duty off-road mobility applications, such as mining equipment, as well as stationary power applications, such as critical back-up for data centers. We are well positioned to support decarbonization of various hard-to-abate applications.”
