Voller Energy Group PLC, the alternative power provider, has announced that it is on track to launch one of the most exciting and environmentally friendly energy systems for commercial use by the end of 2007. The 1kW fuel cell system aims to replace commonly used diesel generators and will cut emissions by an estimated sixty times.
As well as operating quietly with very low emissions, the fuel cell system is highly efficient. Furthermore the system has the advantage of working from widely available fuels, such as Calor Gas, propane or liquefied petroleum gas.
In addition, the fuel cell would have to run for approximately 200 years to produce the same sulphur emissions or smells as a regular diesel generator would produce in one day.
With the environment at the forefront of mariners’ problems, this unique fuel cell system is the only known product of its kind to available in the UK markets.
Additional benefits of the fuel cell system over a conventional diesel generator are the weight saving and the reduced levels of servicing and maintenance. A diesel generator requires ongoing servicing and maintenance much, as a car engine does. Typically, this may mean an oil change after 150 hours of use. Initial estimates are that the fuel cell system will be maintenance free for 1,000 hours of use.
