Hydrogenics Awarded Major Order for Fuel Cell Backup Power Modules from CommScope

05 Dec 2012

Hydrogenics Corporation has announced that it received an order for the delivery of HyPM(TM) XR Series hydrogen fuel cell power modules from its US-based partner, CommScope, Inc.

Hydrogenics power modules will be integrated into CommScope's fuel cell cabinets as the backup power solution for hundreds of wireless sites in North America, servicing a leading wireless operator. This is the largest single order from CommScope since the announcement of the strategic alliance between CommScope and Hydrogenics in 2010. This award is significant as it brings total orders in the Hydrogenics power systems business to over $100 million for 2012.

"We are very pleased with this order from CommScope for one of their key customers in North America," said Daryl Wilson, Hydrogenics' President and Chief Executive Officer. "CommScope is a leader in providing communications infrastructure solutions to world's largest telecom players, and hydrogen backup power cabinets provide a clean, reliable, long-term energy source to cell sites while avoiding the inherent issues and costs associated with batteries and diesel generators. We have worked closely with CommScope to develop and launch a best-in-class outdoor backup power solution for telecom customers. This year we have seen increased interest for the CommScope/Hydrogenics back-up power package from telecom players around the globe, and we anticipate similar interest in 2013."
