Ballard Power Systems has unveiled its 8th generation high performance fuel cell module, the FCmove-HD.
It is the first in a family of FCmove products to be introduced and is specifically designed to meet the requirements of transit bus operators. It will be used in 1,000 fuel cell electric buses (FCEBs) to be deployed in Europe by the new H2Bus Consortium.
Future FCmove products will offer various power outputs to suit a broad range of commercial vehicles including trucks, coaches and trains.
Randy MacEwen, Ballard President and CEO said, "Today, we see growing global interest in the compelling value proposition uniquely offered by fuel cell electric vehicles in Medium and Heavy Duty transportation applications. With a 35% reduction in lifecycle cost, the FCmove-HD module represents a major advancement in the cost competitiveness of fuel cell solutions for this market."
