HYDROGENICS SECURES FUEL CELL CONTRACT WITH SINOHYTEC
Hydrogen (H2) technology specialists, Hydrogenics Corporation from Canada, has signed a strategic partnership with Chinese outfit SinoHytec to deliver fuel cells to the North Pacific rim country.
The $13.5m contract will see both companies co-develop fuel cell power modules and supply power systems specifically for the Chinese market, with the systems integrated into buses and trucks during the next two years.
This contract further builds upon Hydrogenics’ presence in China, after securing several deals in 2015 with the country’s vehicle manufacturers to deliver fuel cell and fuelling station technologies.
It is understood that these agreements will impact more than 2,000 vehicles over the course of the next three to five years as part of China’s strategy to solve widespread air quality issues.
