Siqens GmbH started strong into 2022 by winning a key customer for the new Ecoport 1500 fuel cell system. A well-known telecommunications and infrastructure supplier has placed the order for Siqens technology to provide backup power for critical infrastructure in the security sector. The Siqens Ecoport 1500 fuel cells provide uninterruptible power for many days in the event of a power failure. The Siqens Ecoport solutions solve the fuel cell industry’s infrastructure and logistics challenge by generating green hydrogen at the point of use from high energy liquid fuels such as renewable methanol.
SIQENS, founded in Munich in 2012, develops and produces methanol fuel cells. The devices are used as an alternative to diesel generators and are used for backup power, as well as in locations without a fixed connection to the power grid.
The SIQENS fuel cell system, the Ecoport, runs on liquid methanol. Inside the Ecoport, hydrogen is derived from the methanol. The hydrogen then reacts with oxygen to generate electrical energy. The Ecoport is connected to a battery and automatically recharges it as needed. Connected electrical devices are supplied directly from the battery. Thanks to patented circuits for the recovery of process media and energy, the system runs exceptionally efficiently.
In contrast to diesel generators, fuel cells are economical, require hardly any maintenance and emit neither particulate matter nor nitrogen oxides, in addition to significantly reducing CO2 emissions. And with methanol from renewable sources, operation is completely climate-neutral.
