With the acquisition of a key customer for the new Ecoport 1500 fuel cell system, Siqens GmbH is off to a successful start in 2022. A well-known telecommunications and infrastructure provider has commissioned Siqens technology for the emergency power supply of critical infrastructures in the security sector. In the event of a power outage, Siqens Ecoport 1500 fuel cells provide uninterrupted power for several days. Siqens Ecoport systems can solve infrastructural and logistical challenges of the fuel cell industry by producing green hydrogen at the point of need from energy-rich liquid fuels such as renewable methanol.


SIQENS, founded in Munich in 2012, develops and produces methanol fuel cells. The units are used as an alternative to diesel generators and are used for emergency power supply, as well as in places without a fixed connection to the power grid.

The SIQENS fuel cell system, the Ecoport, is operated with liquid methanol. Hydrogen is produced from the methanol in the Ecoport. This reacts with oxygen to generate electrical energy. The Ecoport is connected to a battery and automatically recharges it when needed. Connected electrical devices are supplied directly from the battery. Thanks to patented circuits for the recovery of process media and energy, the system runs particularly efficiently.

In contrast to diesel generators, fuel cells are economical, require hardly any maintenance and emit neither fine dust nor nitrogen oxides, as well as significantly reducedCO2 emissions. If methanol from regenerative sources is used, operation is completely climate-neutral.
