IdaTech Corp. (Bend, OR) announced an agreement with Atwood Mobile Products Inc. (Elkhart, IN) to develop a portable fuel cell system for the recreational vehicle (RV) industry.

According to Alan Guggenheim, president of IdaTech, “Atwood understands RVs, and we understand fuel cell systems, which provide compact, quiet and environmentally friendly sources of power well-suited to the RV lifestyle. With Atwood, we intend to design a system, including related power-control equipment, that is specifically tailored for the portable platform of a recreational vehicle. Our plan is to develop an onboard electrical power system that is quiet and produces little vibration or pollution. The jointly developed product will be a fully integrated system that RV manufacturers worldwide can install in their vehicles."
