Hydrogen, the clean energy solution that “fuels” our partner GenCell's portfolio

Hydrogen has been increasingly cited as one of the alternatives to achieve a clean, secure and affordable energy future. International Energy Agency (IEA) has mentioned this fact and recently published (Jun19) a report to analyse the current state of play for hydrogen and to offer guidance on its future development. 

Along the same path is the decision of the Portuguese government, which, according to TSF news this week, revealed its intention to “install a green hydrogen production unit, powered by green energy”, demonstrating that hydrogen is a bet of future for Portugal.

SerOmni Group, in a constant search for cutting-edge technology solutions, is currently partnered with Gencell.

GenCell develops unique fuel cell solutions that offer clean power for humanity. Using the ultra-reliable and exhaust-free technology that powered the American and Russian space programs GenCell have removed the platinum inside the fuel cells and reduced the quantity of noble metals to provide affordable, clean backup power for telecom, homeland security, healthcare and automated industries.

GENCELL provides a Long-Term Backup Solution that Is increasingly a necessity for Business continuity. GenCell fuel-cell-based power solutions produce 5kW of electricity and overcome the significant weaknesses of legacy power solutions: the limited duration of batteries, the smell, noise and startup time of diesel generators, and the weather/daylight limitations of solar energy systems.
In addition, GenCell has succeeded in developing a number of patents to reduce the CAPEX and OPEX of its fuel-cell power solution, including the use of a non-platinum catalyst, as well as mechanisms for using regular, ambient air as an oxidizer and lower-cost industrial-grade hydrogen as a fuel.
GenCell currently offers two solutions that produce 5kW of auxiliary power:

• GenCell G5 long-duration UPS (uninterruptible power supply) for telecom, homeland security, healthcare and niche industrial markets.
Designed to be extremely reliable, the GenCell solution has minimal moving parts, redundant internal systems and is highly resilient to extreme temperatures, humidity and air salinity.

GenCell G5 Long-Duration UPS

• GenCell G5rx utility backup power solution for substations during power outages of any duration. Designed to operate as a direct source of backup power or to supplement the limited duration of legacy auxiliary battery systems, the GenCell G5rx solution offers an immediate injection of power and keeps circuit breaker “auto reclosers” operational until the grid recovers.

Both GenCell solutions are comprised of the following components: na electrochemical generator (i.e., the fuel cell), an energy bridge, a heat utilization unit and a hydrogen fuel supply. The GenCell G5rx also includes a shelter that is resistant to high-voltage interference, earthquakes and EMPs. An optional Network Operations Center (NOC) offers remote manage and maintenance of all GenCell solutions from a control room, web browser or mobile device.
