Heliocentris autonomous power supply solution for Bahrain oil company

Heliocentris Fuel Cells, a German-based specialist in clean energy storage solutions, has received two more orders for the supply of autonomous fuel cell power supply solutions. The clients are the oil company Bahrain Petroleum in Bahrain, and an unidentified German university.

The solutions are hybrid energy storage systems consisting of batteries, fuel cells, electrolyzers, and adapted power electronics that store locally generated solar or wind power. For the oil company project, Heliocentris will also deliver the solar photovoltaic and wind solutions.

The two projects have a total volume of approximately €300 000 (US$450 000).

‘After just recently receiving an order for a complete energy storage system, we are pleased about the two additional projects for similar energy solutions,’ says Dr Henrik Colell, CEO of Heliocentris Fuel Cells. ‘The associated significant increase in sales confirms our growth strategy towards hybrid storage solutions.’

Heliocentris Fuel Cells is based in Berlin, with a subsidiary in Vancouver, Canada. The company specializes in clean energy storage solutions based on a smart combination of batteries, fuel cells, and energy management.

Application areas for Heliocentris Fuel Cells are mobile and stationary applications that require longer ranges than current batteries can provide. Examples are electric vehicles, onboard and emergency power supplies, as well as electricity supply for off-grid applications such as monitoring stations or energy self-sufficient houses.
