FUEL CELL SYSTEMS
A leading manufacturer of fuel cells. Clean, quiet and producing only water vapour as their byproduct.
Fuel Cell Systems Limited was formed in 2010 as a spin-off from UPS Systems plc, the power technology provider. Fuel cells are clean, very quiet and produce no exhaust gases other than water vapour. The technology has a wide range of different applications ranging from remote monitoring systems to off grid buildings.
A recent British Antarctic Survey project (2018) conducted on a Norwegian ice drift expedition in the Arctic Ocean, sought to understand sea ice processes from winter formation to summer melt. The BAS team looked particularly at how snow storms above sea ice contribute to atmospheric chemistry and particle formation. Their complex instrument suite required a continuous power supply at temperatures down to -40C, wind speeds up to 50 knots and associated strong snow drift. Fuel Cell Systems Ltd provided an EFOY Pro DMFC (direct methanol fuel cell) unit, providing reliable power to their instrument suite during the most challenging cold and stormy conditions.
Fuel Cell Systems were voted ‘Best Fuel Cell Systems 2016.
