29 Jul 2013

Azure Ballard

Ballard Power Systems has signed an Equipment Supply Agreement (ESA) with Azure Hydrogen, its partner in China, for the supply of 220 ElectraGen telecom backup power fuel cell systems to be deployed in Chinese telecom networks.

The agreement includes 120 direct hydrogen ElectraGen-H2 systems as well as 100 methanol fuelled ElectraGen-ME systems. All systems covered by the agreement are expected to be delivered to Azure in Q3 and Q4 of 2013.

This follows an investment of $2 million made by Azure in March of this year for a 10% stake in Ballard's backup power subsidiary Dantherm Power and the signing of a non-binding MoU in May for fuel cell bus development.
