Ballard Power Systems has announced that it received purchase orders for 102 fuel cell power generation systems, which will be delivered to the company's new Southeast Asia distributor, Cascadiant Inc.

According to Ballard, the systems will be deployed in the networks of two wireless telecom customers in Indonesia to provide backup power in the event of grid outages.

The purchase orders for 102 systems include direct hydrogen ELECTRAgenTM-H2 systems, to be deployed in the network of an Indonesian service provider. In addition, the purchase orders include methanol-fuelled ELECTRAgenTM-ME systems to be deployed in the network of a different Indonesian service provider.

"Backup power solutions are, by their nature, critical elements of telecom networks. Therefore, the decision to use fuel-cell-based products has certainly been given careful consideration by our customers,” says Marshall Towe, president and CEO of Cascadiant.
