|Dana is developing a variety of OEM fuel cell components for both stationary and mobile applications.|
Dana Corporation, a leading supplier of axle, driveshaft, engine, frame, chassis, and transmission technologies. is featuring a range of its fuel-cell technologies and capabilities at the Hannover Fair 2006, April 24-28, in Hannover, Germany.
The Dana display at the Hannover Fair will demonstrate new developments in bipolar plates, seals, and end caps for fuel-cell stacks. Dana has developed a proprietary, cost-effective manufacturing process to produce joined bipolar plate assemblies in either stainless steel or molded carbon materials with integrated seals and connectors.
Dana believes this process is the first of its kind for mass-producing fuel-cell components, and it overcomes a major hurdle on the road to commercialization. Also on display will be products for the fuel-cell balance of plant, such as heat exchangers and condensers; electric pumps; control valves; and reformer-based fuel-processor components.
Dana is supporting fuel-cell development programs for a wide range of customers in the residential, commercial, portable power, and transportation industries. Through our development agreements and strategic partnerships, we’re participating in the efforts that will lay the foundation for the mass production of fuel cells in the future.—Michael Burns, Dana Chairman and CEO
