Based on Dantherm Power’s DBX5000 backup power fuel cell system, the fuel cell generator utilizes Ballard fuel cell stacks.

Ballard is planning to deliver in the current quarter for deployment at one of Anglo American Platinum’s mining operations in South Africa.

Ballard president and CEO John Sheridan said Anglo American operations will gain first-hand experience regarding the ability for a fuel cell generator to provide clean and reliable power on a relatively large scale at a mining site.

The fuel cell system will be powered by hydrogen generated in South Africa and will provide clean, cost-effective electricity.

Ballard provides clean energy fuel cell products enabling optimized power systems for a range of applications.
