BACKUP FOR CRITICAL SYSTEMS
Fuel cells are highly reliable, clean and quiet and so ideal for providing backup power for critical systems. They are more reliable and require less maintenance than conventional generators. And as they keep running as long as there is fuel, they can provide much longer run-times than battery UPS systems.
The Gencell G5 long-duration UPS (uninterruptible power supply) provides a potentially unlimited source of 5kW backup power for example for telecoms or first responders. Ballard’s FCgen®-H2PM systems are modular and provide reliable, clean and quiet backup power to critical infrastructure up to 30kW. Intelligent Energy’s fuel cell based backup power solution is modular, flexible and capable of meeting power demands from 1kW and up to 6kW in a single unit. These systems have been well proven in service for telecoms backup in India.
Arcola Energy will advise clients on the most appropriate solution for their needs, and particularly on the appropriate routes to supply and storage of hydrogen to provide the run-times required. We can also provide installation, maintenance and support services as well as remote monitoring to ensure and conform the availability expected for critical system backup.
