IdaTech, Cascadiant roll out more fuel cells for telecoms backup power in Indonesia

US-based IdaTech has received a further order for its PEM fuel cell systems for use in backup power applications in Indonesia. As part of this Phase III rollout, IdaTech has received an order for 154 ElectraGen™ fuel cell systems from its local partner Cascadiant.

IdaTech will supply its latest-generation hydrogen fuel cell backup power systems for deployment on the Indonesian islands of Sumatra and Lombok.

IdaTech’s partner Cascadiant has been awarded the Phase III expansion contract to install and support the ElectraGen fuel cell systems. Cascadiant has successfully installed more than 100 fuel cell systems across Indonesia with several wireless operators.

The initial ElectraGen fuel cell installations have already demonstrated a significant increase in network availability and performance. These latest deployments are a continuation of Cascadiant’s objective to install fuel cells on wireless networks, so increasing availability in regions with unreliable or limited grid power while reducing the industry’s carbon footprint.

‘Fuel cells are becoming increasingly popular among network operators, because they are significantly cleaner and quieter than diesel generators, reduce the number of batteries required at telecom sites, and are less likely to be involved in theft,’ explains Marshall Towe, President and CEO of Cascadiant.
