The first three fuel cell systems have been delivered to H2 Portable, a Canadian company developing hydrogen-electric mobile power solutions, by Loop EnergyTM, a designer and producer of hydrogen fuel cell solutions. In order to supply clean, dependable, on-demand electricity to movie sets, construction sites, and other places with restricted grid power access, the fuel cells will be incorporated into hydrogen-electric gensets.
H2 Portable, based in Chilliwack, British Columbia, is primarily concerned with finding new markets for its next-generation hydrogen-electric gensets. With TYCROP Manufacturing, one of BC’s top industrial manufacturing firms, H2 Portable has strategic product development and production cooperation.
The T505 (50 kW) fuel cell systems will be delivered, and field testing of the gensets is anticipated to start in 2023. In order to meet the rising demand for hydrogen-electric power systems across sectors in Canada and the United States, H2 Portable and TYCROP plan to expand manufacturing beginning in 2024.
During a tendering procedure, H2 Portable chose Loop Energy as its technology supplier, citing the improved fuel efficiency of their fuel cells. H2 Portable can minimise its clients’ operational expenses by using less gasoline. To develop and grow its technology for the commercial market, Loop Energy’s Global Technical Services team is collaborating with H2 Portable and TYCROP.
“H2 Portable is developing solutions for a market that is primed to use hydrogen as a solution to decarbonize a broad range of industries,” said Loop Energy President & CEO, Ben Nyland. “We’re excited to see these generators produce zero-emission power across a diverse range of industries.”
Dag Hinrichs, President of H2 Portable added “Customers want a clean power solution that is reliable, safe and scalable. Partnering with Loop Energy and TYCROP provides the technology and manufacturing required to deliver a strong business case for our customers.”
Due to hydrogen’s capacity to offer dependable electricity to augment the current electrical infrastructure and deliver clean power to companies operating off the grid, the market for zero-emission gensets and power systems is expanding internationally.
