VANCOUVER—Ballard Power Systems has received purchase orders for 102 fuel cell power generation systems to be delivered to Cascadiant Inc., the company’s southeast Asian distributor. The systems will be deployed in the networks of two wireless telecom customers in Indonesia to provide backup power in the event of grid outages.
Financial terms of the deal have yet to be released.
Ballard recently closed a transaction to acquire select assets from IdaTech, a Ballard customer for the past several years. Assets included product lines, distributor agreements (including Cascadiant) and customer contracts. The company had been supplying FCgen-1020ACS fuel cell stacks for use in IdaTech systems.
Ballard says the transaction enabled establishment of a comprehensive portfolio of fuel cell power generation products for backup and continuous power.
The Vancouver-based company develops clean energy fuel cell products.
