Hydrogenics awarded contract for aircraft fuel cells
MISSISSAUGA, Ont.: Hydrogenics’ German operating unit has been awarded a contract by Germany’s national research centre for aeronautics and space (DLR) to supply a series of next-generation fuel-cell modules for aircraft power applications.
Hydrogenics, a Mississauga, Ont.-based developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation and fuel cell products, said the DLR is working on several projects such as the Multifunctional APU and the Antares H3, scheduled to take flight in 2011.
“The next generation of our HD Series will demonstrate much higher levels of power density and compactness enabling easier integration into aircraft applications,” said Daryl Wilson, Hydrogenics president and CEO.
Hydrogenics GmbH will design and assemble several heavy duty, high durability HyPM HD10 fuel cell power modules for delivery early next year.
