H Power Corp. (Clifton, NJ) announced that it will deliver a 4kW cogeneration fuel cell system to Naps Systems Oy (Finland), a leading solar power system company and a subsidiary of Fortum Corp. (Finland). The fuel cell system will be installed at the Environmental Information Centre in Hammarby Sjostad Stockholm, Sweden, to use and demonstrate a sustainable energy system that provides both electricity and heat.

The delivery will be under the previously announced distribution agreement between H Power and Naps. The cogeneration fuel cell system will be delivered in the first half of 2002. Naps will in turn deliver the cogeneration fuel cell system to Birka Energi, which has a cooperation project with the research and development department of ABB in Sweden to supply an energy system for an environmental information center.

H. Frank Gibbard, CEO of H Power, commented, "We are proud that our cogeneration fuel cell system has been chosen as the core energy unit for a sustainable energy project in conjunction with such global names as ABB and Birka Energi. Delivery of this H Power fuel cell system to Naps will demonstrate our commitment to ensuring the success of our strategic partnerships, as well as our belief that H Power's PEM fuel cells can make a significant contribution to the creation of sustainable energy infrastructures throughout the world."
