Ballard’s 200 kilowatt system, FCwave™, is specifically designed to provide zero-emission power to marine vessels.  The culmination of product development and field experience based on more than 50 million kilometers of heavy-duty vehicle operation, Ballard’s FCwave™ fuel cell module is tested and certified for operation in marine environments. The module is scalable from 200 kilowatts to megawatts to suit a broad range of inland and costal vessels like ferries and barges.


Key advantages of Ballard’s FCwaveTM Marine Module:

Modular, Scalable Power

  • Built in 200 kilowatt modules, FCwaveTM facilitates scalable power output and flexible integration onto the vessel. 

Low Lifecycle Cost

  • Low total-cost-of-ownership, achieved through product performance optimization, common components across product platforms and low maintenance requirements.

Ease of Integration

  • The module is integrated into a clean-lined cabinet with easy access doors and all interfaces accessible from the front for service and maintenance.

Safe Operation

  • Designed hand-in-hand with industry to withstand the rigors of the marine environment and meet the most stringent safety standards.

Technology Leadership

  • The same Ballard fuel cell technology powering FCwave™ is already proving itself in more than 3,000 fuel cell electric trucks and buses deployed in China, Europe and North America.

Key Features:

  • Customizable power output from 200 kilowatts to megawatts
  • Flexible and modular design minimizes the space required in a vessel
  • All interface connections situated at the bottom of the module for integration into false floor
  • Use proven components from Ballard's portfolio to capitalize on high volume and lower cost
  • Remote monitoring and diagnostics
