MISSISSAUGA, Ontario -- Hydrogenics Corporation (NASDAQ:HYGS) (TSX:HYG) (“Hydrogenics” or “the Company”), a leading developer and manufacturer of hydrogen generation, fueling station equipment and hydrogen-based power modules, today announced the market introduction of its 3 megawatt PEM electrolyzer stack. Responding to customer demand and interest, the 3 MW system is the newest variant of Hydrogenics’ field-proven 1500E platform – which was first introduced in 2015 as a 1.5 MW stack.
The new system has a production capability of 1,350 kilograms of hydrogen per day, making it capable of powering 280 fuel cell vehicles every 24 hours. Its compact size ensures the smallest footprint with unparalleled efficiency in terms of logistics, siting and installation.
