Proton Motor and Xelectrix Power launch fuel cell gen-set
By Julian Buckley29 November 2021
Proton Motor Fuel Cell and Xelectrix Power have unveiled a complete fuel cell and battery storage system which could take the place of diesel gen-sets.
The PM-H/LFP-240, or HyShelter 240, is a standalone island system that supports energy generation away from the public grid for use in commercial and industrial applications, especially where backup is required.
The HyShelter 240 comprises three PM Frame S43 fuel cell systems from Proton Motor and an energy storage system from Xelectrix Power.
The three fuel cells have a maximum power output of 129 kW, while the storage system can deliver up to 240 kW of power at peak load, with zero CO2 emissions.
Hydrogen fuel for the off-grid unit is provided by Proton Motor’s containerised hydrogen fuel cell powerplant.
The system is housed in a 20 foot container, with an external cooler unit.
