Ballard Power to provide FCmove-HD fuel cell modules to AZETEC project
Ballard Power Systems announced that it will provide next-generation FCmove-HD fuel cell modules - utilizing Ballard's LCS technology - to power 2 tractor-trailer trucks as part of an industry-lead CA$15M, or $11.2M, Alberta Zero-Emissions Truck Electrification Collaboration, or AZETEC, project. The AZETEC project will test the ability of hydrogen to fuel the Province of Alberta's heavy duty freight transportation sector and is seen as a first step in exploring a potential made-in-Alberta hydrogen economy. Ballard will provide a total of 6 FCmove-HD fuel cell modules - each generating 70 kW of power - with 3 modules to be installed in each truck. These modules will utilize Ballard's LCS technology, planned for commercial availability in 2019.
