FCmove™, the latest platform for heavy duty power modules based on the FCgen®-LCS stack, is the culmination of more than 8 generations of product development at Ballard. The FCmove™ platform offer a compact, fully integrated, robust fuel cell power solution with low total life cycle cost. It is available with 70kW and 100kW versions. FCmove™ products are specifically designed for easy integration in buses and trucks with both roof-top and engine bay configurations.
The FCveloCity® motive module legacy platform, based on the FCvelocity®-9SSL stack, is available in 30kW, 85kW and 100kW versions for heavy duty applications. The platforms include the fuel cell power module and separate air and coolant sub-systems. Over 3,500 FCveloCity® fuel cell power modules are now in operation in buses, trucks and trains.
Key advantages of Ballard’s heavy duty module product lines include:
Lower Life Cycle Cost
Low total-cost-of-ownership, achieved through product performance optimization, fuel cell stack durability (>30,000 hrs proven in operation), efficiency and lower maintenance requirements.
Simplified System Integration
- Small footprint, fully integrated fuel cell module with interfaces located on one panel for better access and flexibility in commercial vehicle design (FCmove™)
Integrated system humidification and pressure optimization offers superior performance, fuel efficiency and durability over a wide range of operating conditions and prevents degradation, delivering >97% availability in vehicle operation.
Performance in Extreme Conditions
- Tolerant to a wider range of operating conditions, including freeze start from -25⁰C (-13⁰F) without external energy (FCmove™) .
The preferred option for OEMs and system integrators, Ballard fuel cells are powering over 3,000 fuel cell buses and trucks. Cumulatively, these vehicles have traveled more than 50 million kilometers.
