GENCELL G5rx
UTILITY BACKUP POWER SOLUTION

  • Immediate injection of power with unlimited run-time
  • Extends battery room operation from 4 to 40 hours
  • Meets substation energy profiles and safety standards
  • Zero emissions, no noise and no vibrations
  • Remote monitoring and maintenance

THE POWER CHALLENGE

Aging electrical grids and more frequent extreme weather make it increasingly challenging to meet the
power needs of always-connected businesses and consumer lifestyles. In 2015, Americans experienced a reported 3,571 total outages, with an average duration of 49 minutes. Momentary blackouts cost the US economy 60 billion USD while sustained blackouts cost 50 billion USD.

GENCELL G5rxTM UTILITY BACKUP POWER SOLUTION

The GenCell G5rx utility backup power solution produces 5kW of auxiliary electricity for substations during outages of any duration. Operating as a direct source of backup power or supplementing legacy backup battery systems that can provide only 6-8 hours of electricity, the GenCell G5rx solution offers an immediate injection of power that keeps circuit breaker “auto reclosers” operational until the grid recovers.

The GenCell G5rx solution overcomes the significant weaknesses of the most common legacy alternatives: the high cost of multiple battery rooms and the smell, noise and lengthy startup time of diesel generators. Fueled by hydrogen, the clean energy of the future, the GenCell G5rx power solution produces no emissions, noise or vibrations, and includes a shelter that is resistant to that is resistant to high-voltage interference, earthquakes and EMPs.

HYDROGEN: THE CLEAN FUEL OF THE FUTURE

Hydrogen is the lightest and most abundant element in the universe and is considered the most
environmentally friendly fuel. Hydrogen is a flammable fuel but has been proven to be as safe or even safer than gasoline or natural gas (methane) as it is lighter than air and quickly dissipates into the atmosphere.

Fuel cells oxidize hydrogen in a chemical reaction to form electricity, heat and water. Since they do not rely on the combustion of fuel, fuel cells do not produce any CO2 or greenhouse gases. When powering a backup power solution, hydrogen fuel cells can advance a utility’s efforts to produce clean energy while improving their service reliability.

THE SOLUTION

GenCell G5rx generator components layout

1. Electrochemical generator
2. Heat utilization unit for dissipating excess heat
3. Energy bridge for instant electrical power generation and regulating power output
4. Fuel supply comprised of standard hydrogen cylinders
5. Shelter enclosure to protect all system components (#1-4)
