Ballard Power, IdaTech Sign Supply Deal For Backup Power Systems

Ballard Power, a Burnaby, BC-based maker of hydrogen fuel cell products, said it has signed a three-year agreement to supply fuel cells to become part of Bend, OR-based IdaTech’s methanol-fuelled backup power system. The system, called ElectraGen, will offer 3 kilowatts or 5 kilowatts of power, enough for days of backup, instead of hours, to a broad range of sites in the wireless telecom industry, Ballard said in a statement.
