Diesel debate, digitalisation, energy transition: diesel aggregates are today also under special scrutiny. They are used, for example, iby nstitutions, authorities or companies to safeguard their critical networks against power failures in the fields of healthcare, digital radio, transport or IT. It has meanwhile become undisputed that the fuel cell is clearly superior to the diesel-powered generators that are currently often deployed for this purpose.

Silent, vibration-free, efficient, ecological, reliable, modular, and being remotely controllable are just a sample of the benefits fuel cell systems provide. They are successively replacing conventional diesel-powered generators in data centres, mobile phone base stations, public authority radio networks, traffic management technology or in autonomous and mobile systems for construction sites and well as measuring and monitoring stations.

Andreas Saft, DB Bahnbau Gruppe GmbH, CPN Spokesperson: “Society’s increasing digital dependency and the global challenges in terms of climate change, energy security and energy efficiency demand a change in the way we approach uninterruptible power supplies (UPS). This particularly applies to back-up and emergency power systems.”

Dr. Henrik Colell of HPS Home Power Solutions GmbH, CPN Spokesperson: “No matter if in the area of traffic management, BOS digital radio, transformer stations, distribution network operation or for the monitoring gas and oil pipelines: over the past years, our partners have demonstrated reliable fuel cell deployment under real operating conditions. The technology and knowledge transfer among partners plays a key role in developing international competitiveness.”
