Proton Energy Delivers HOGEN to Birka Energi

June 26, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Proton Energy Systems Inc. (Rocky Hill, CT) announced that it delivered a renewable, energy-based HOGEN® hydrogen generator to Birka Energi AB (Sweden), in conjunction with ABB (Zurich, Switzerland), to fuel an environmental information center in Hammarby Sjostad, Stockholm, Sweden, that will generate hydrogen directly from a photovoltaic solar array. Birka Energi and ABB selected Proton's hydrogen generator as a fuel source for their fuel cell systems to generate power for the center.

Proton President and CEO Walter Schroeder commented, "Energy users want to incorporate renewable energy sources and fuel cells into their facility designs. Our generators offer the breakthrough capability to transform renewable power into ultra-high purity hydrogen fuel at high pressure. When fed into a fuel cell, this hydrogen produces electricity without pollution and without depletions. As part of Birka Energi's facility, we are providing a practical demonstration of sustainable energy."
