Hydrogenics Corp. (Toronto, Canada), a designer and manufacturer of fuel cell technology, announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Greenlight Power Technologies, has received orders totaling $3 million for fuel cell test stations from two leading Asian automotive customers. Both are repeat orders for multiple machines.

Cumulatively, Greenlight is providing seven Fuel Cell Advanced Test Stations (FCATS) to two major customers. The first order is for three 3kW proton-exchange membrane (PEM) FCATS L-Series test systems. The second is for three 12kW PEM FCATS H-Series test systems and one 60kW PEM FCATS HX-Series testing station. The stations are expected to be delivered over the next two quarters.

"Our decision to open an office in Tokyo, Japan, over three years ago continues to pay dividends," said Pierre Rivard, president and CEO of Hydrogenics. "The Japanese market is advancing quite aggressively towards the commercialization of fuel cell technology, as evidenced by our growth in test equipment sales to the region over the past three years. We are delighted to secure these major contracts with customers who are clearly setting the pace in fuel cell development."
