Hydrogenics Unveils 3 Megawatt PEM Electrolyzer Stack
New Industry Benchmark for Electrolytic Hydrogen Generation
Mississauga, Ontario – April 25, 2017 – Hydrogenics Corporation (NASDAQ: HYGS; TSX: HYG) (“Hydrogenics” or “the Company”), a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation, fueling station equipment and hydrogen-based power modules, today announced the market introduction of its 3 megawatt PEM electrolyzer stack. Responding to customer demand and interest, the 3 MW system is the newest variant of Hydrogenics’ field-proven 1500E platform – which was first introduced in 2015 as a 1.5 MW stack.
The new system has a production capability of 1,350 kilograms of hydrogen per day, making it capable of powering 280 fuel cell vehicles every 24 hours. Its compact size ensures the smallest footprint with unparalleled efficiency in terms of logistics, siting and installation.
“Our three megawatt stack platform is the new industry benchmark for electrolytic hydrogen generation,” said Joseph Cargnelli, Hydrogenics’ Chief Technology Officer. “In developing this next-generation system, we continue our focus on cost reduction through technology innovation and scale. The new stack is able to deliver substantially reduced plant size and expense while improving the customer’s overall deployment flexibility. Whether end users are looking for hydrogen fueling to advance zero-emission transport or for utility-scale renewable hydrogen solutions, we are uniquely able to support their vision and growth objectives.”
Hydrogenics will be profiling its new 3 MW stack at the 2017 Hannover Messe in Germany, April 25 – 28. To learn more, visit Hall 27, Booth #C65 and speak with a Company representative.
