Data Center & Telecom

Clean, secure, cost effective emergency power that lasts
In critical backup power applications, such as data centres and telecommunications operators, even brief power outages can be extremely costly. Typically, these users have relied on cumbersome banks of batteries and/or diesel generators for backup power. The drawbacks are inconsistent power, limited runtime, physical plant issues and refueling logistics.

Hydrogen is a better solution
Backup power systems incorporating our HyPM™ XR Fuel Cell Power Modules offer consistent power, seamless switching and virtually limitless runtime.
Working with world-leading suppliers of uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems, and CommScope, a renowned provider of infrastructure solutions for telecommunications companies, Hydrogenics provides fuel cells for two categories of UPS systems that deliver uniform power, indefinitely, at a lower life cycle cost:

  • EcoPower units provide 2-30 kW of DC power from outdoor enclosures for telecom operations
  • HyPM™ rack mounted units provide 2-200 kW, or more, of AC power for data centres
