Ballard has engaged UQM for contract assembly of FCveloCity-HD 85-kilowatt Ballard fuel cell modules to be deployed in the US.
UQM, in Longmont, Colorado, has capacity in its TS16949 certified manufacturing facility where it will contract assemble the fuel cell modules for Ballard.
UQM has been a long time supplier to Ballard, and we are now utilizing our manufacturing facility to support Ballard in delivering modules for buses in the US. We see this as yet another way our companies can work together for mutual benefit. We have implemented world class operational systems in our Colorado facility, and we are pleased to improve our asset utilization and support Ballard in meeting US demand.—Joe Mitchell, CEO and President of UQM Technologies
