Proton Motor successfully completed first fuel cell emergency power system with rated power output of 24kW

Proton Motor has announced the successful delivery and completion of its follow-on order from “DB Bahnbau Gruppe GmbH”, a subsidiary of “Deutsche Bahn AG”, the operator of the German Rail network.

The company from the Munich Metropolitan region has delivered to the customer a complete hydrogen fuel cell emergency power system for installation at a railway control centre in the greater Berlin area (view photo below), which has now passed the site acceptance test, customer handover, and serial and operational approval.

The completion of this follow-on order represents the first fuel cell emergency power system under the customer’s brand name “EnerRail H024” and has a rated power output of 24kW. It follows the cooperation agreement signed between Proton Motor and the customer in 2015, under which 23 systems have already been delivered for various emergency power applications. The systems delivered to the customer include, among other things, the indoor plug-and-play “HyCabinet S24” fuel cell system, which consists of three fully redundant “HyModule® S8” systems.

Dr. Faiz Nahab said: “The successful completion of this follow-up order from DB Bahnbau Gruppe is further evidence of the company’s progress in commercialising its proprietary hydrogen fuel cell technologies and reaffirms Proton Motor’s leadership in the sector. We look forward to continuing to work further with DB Bahnbau Gruppe to provide them with zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell solutions as Deutsche Bahn looks to phase out diesel generators by 2026.”
