Plug Power Inc. has launched its heavy-duty 125 kW ProGen zero emission hydrogen fuel-cell system. ProGen fuel cell systems include the fuel-cell stack and all required subsystems for humidification, air delivery, fuel regulation and cooling.
The new ProGen product expands Plug Power’s market reach into heavy-duty on and off-road applications that include Class 6, 7 and 8 trucks, transit buses and various port applications.
Plug Power ProGen units are designed to be plug-and-play complete fuel cell systems. The standard module is designed to simplify OEM and system integrators’ packaging into their commercial offerings. Production shipments of the heavy-duty systems are to begin in the third quarter of 2020.
The high performance compact 125 kW ProGen systems are available in a variety of output voltages, are equipped with cold start capability, and offer an intelligent can bus interface for seamless OEM integration.
