Puchheim near Munich, November 16, 2020 – The Bavarian designer, developer and producer of fuel cells and fuel cell electric hybrid systems with a zero-carbon footprint, “Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH“ (www.proton-motor.de), announces today that it has received an order for its newly released product “PM Frame“, which is available in power level intervals of 21, 28, 36 and 43 kW to work as an uninterruptible power supply unit (UPS). The system will be installed as an UPS system within road tunnels. Road tunnels have to be equipped with UPS systems for safety reasons to power, in the event of an accident or grid failure, the necessary equipment such as lighting, air ventilation, and safety equipment for a temporary period.
Fuel cells in combination with hydrogen have advantages compared to batteries and diesel gen sets with regard to service and maintenance, energy density, availability are totally emission free. This initial unit is the first of a potential of 300 units from this customer.
Dr. Faiz Nahab, CEO of Proton Motor, commented:„This is excellent news illustrating demand for hydrogen fuel cells to provide stand by clean hydrogen driven energy instead of diesel within the road infrastructure segment.“
