With the PM Container, Proton Motor offers the complete plug-and-play solution for safe and emission-free energy generation. The fuel cell solution with integrated fuel cell system as part of an energy storage system is used for green and reliable reverse power generation.
Typical areas of application:
- Energy storage systems based on hydrogen
- Supply of critical infrastructure e.g. data centres
- Industry and data centres
- Self-sufficient energy supply
In addition, many other applications can be realised in which an efficient and environmentally friendly energy supply is required.
In the initial phase of implementing the system, we at Proton Motor have developed the new “PM Frame fuel cell system, which is available in 4 different outputs and can be installed up to five times in a 20-foot container. Through the additional integration of suitable power electronics, grid-synchronous operation can be fulfilled if desired by the customer.
The PM Container can be customised, for example, as part of a regenerative energy storage system so that surplus wind energy is chemically stored with hydrogen. Combined with Proton Motor’s fuel cell systems, the stored energy can be converted back into electricity and heat.
The fuel cells are each connected to the secondary cooling circuit via a heat exchanger. To reduce heat, a table cooler with four water/air coolers is connected to the system, which is installed outside the container. The output temperature downstream of the heat sink serves as the control variable. Furthermore, in addition to the necessary pumps, shut-off and drain valves, an expansion tank with integrated sensor for level monitoring is integrated in the secondary cooling circuit. The thermal energy extracted can be used without any problems in the sense of a combined heat and power system if the required parameters are met.
