Hydrogenics Corp. (HYGS) to Fuel APC by Schneider Electric for Emission-free, Efficient Power Supply

Hydrogenics Corp. (Nasdaq: HYGS) has emerged as a worldwide recognized developer of hydrogen generation and fuel cell products and services. The company today announced that APC by Schneider Electric, a leader in critical power and cooling services, will soon launch an extended-run backup power system. Hydrogenics’ HyPM XR Fuel Cell Power Module will fuel the APC system, supplying uninterruptible backup power.

APC’s Fuel Cell Extended Run product produces low-cost, efficient, emission-free electrical backup power using air and stored hydrogen. Hydrogenics Corp. will provide a turnkey critical application power system for the FCXR, through HyPM XR Fuel Cell Power Modules. The system is ideal for customers with space constraints, or for those in a physical location that won’t allow noisy diesel generators.

“APC’s next generation fuel cell backup product represents one of the first commercial uses of fuel cell technology for data center environments,” John DiPippo, senior vice president, APC Data Center Solutions, Software and Services stated in the press release.

In August 2006, the companies secured their first Fuel Cell Power Module agreement to provide power electronics, cooling and system controls in a standard APC modular rack mount. According to the press release, the FCXR supports APC’s 3-phase Symmetra PX product line and adds a new dimension for extended backup time to APC’s InfraStruXure architecture.

“The next generation FCXR incorporates key improvements based on the successful commercial trials of our earlier fuel cell solution deployed during the past two years. We believe APC’s new fuel cell product provides the right combination of power capacity and innovative hydrogen-based technology to meet market demand,” DiPippo stated.
