Denmark is installing fuel cells to provide backup power for its public safety network, which ensures that safety thorities are able to communicate with each other in an emergency situation.
It is using fuel cells to provide a back-up to standard electricity supply, to ensure that a power supply is available after any accident.
The fuel cells are supplied by Dantherm Air Handling, a Danish company which normally specialises in dehumidification, heating, air conditioning, ventilation and electronics cooling.
It will use fuel cell stacks from Canadian fuel cell manufacturer Ballard.
”This order provides a stamp of approval for the use of hydrogen and fuel cell technology in mission critical installations," says Dantherm.
"We expect many emergency networks and telecommunications operators to follow the example of using backup power based on hydrogen and fuel cells over the next few years. This order highlights the fact that the technology has now matured to the point where practical application issues and economic factors have been resolved."
