Hannover, Germany— IdaTech LLC demonstrated its new back-up power module in the Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Exhibit at Hannover Fair, April 19-24, at the Hannover Fairgrounds. The module is fueled with stored hydrogen, and is designed to replace traditional long-duration battery back-up systems. The company also is taking advanced inquiries for the first test and evaluation units. IdaTech is a subsidiary of IdaCorp Inc. (Boise, ID).
IdaTech reports that it has progressively expanded its capabilities and partner network in fuel cell applications and markets. This year, the firm has extended its reach to include critical back-up systems; enhanced diesel/kerosene integrated fuel cell systems for portable and auxiliary power unit applications; natural gas and LPG-based high purity hydrogen generators for hydrogen refueling; and industrial applications.
'We’re excited about the expansion of our solution-based portfolio, and especially the deployment of our EtaGen5 combined heat and power high efficiency fuel cell systems in Germany and elsewhere,” says Claude Duss, IdaTech’s president and CEO. 'Over the past year, we’ve developed strong partnerships and continue to seek additional partners in selected markets and technologies to further accelerate progress. Also, incorporating our proprietary PEM power module into IdaTech fuel cell solutions has greatly extended our ability to offer customer-driven solutions.”
