Berlin, Germany - 4th November 2008. Heliocentris Fuel Cells AG, the fuel cell system integrator, announced today that the City of Barth in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania has awarded Heliocentris a contract to deliver an electrolyser for the supply of hydrogen to the City's hybrid midi-bus and to optimize the City's wastewater treatment facility. This new contract follows Heliocentris' successful integration of a 32 kW fuel cell system for use in the Barth midi-bus, earlier this year. "This contract proves we can deliver fully functioning fuel cell systems together with the necessary hydrogen infrastructure for a transport system," said Dr. Henrik Colell, CEO of Heliocentris. "This contract will add significantly to our revenues in 2009." The hydrogen electrolyser provided by Hydrogenics, which can deliver 10m3/hour of hydrogen, will be used to generate the necessary hydrogen to operate the fuel-cell bus. A major advantage of the electrolyser is the co-generation of oxygen (5m3/hour), which will be used to increase the capacity of the local wastewater treatment facility. "Following the fast and successful integration of the fuel cell system for the midi-bus, we are very happy to have Heliocentris deliver the hydrogen infrastructure, also. We are confident Heliocentris will once again reliably deliver on schedule," said Mr. Hellwig, Project Manager of the City of Barth. "We are also expecting from the cooperation with Heliocentris a goal-orientated project delivery as we have already achieved with the hybrid bus."
