Dantherm Power to Collaborate with Delta Power Solutions in India

Collaboration agreement provides a managed approach to address telecom backup power market opportunity
Ballard Power Systems today announced that Dantherm Power, a Danish system integrator in which it has a controlling interest, has signed a collaboration agreement with Delta Power Solutions (India) Pvt. Ltd. to market clean energy fuel cell power solutions in the Indian telecommunications sector.

Under the agreement, Dantherm Power and Delta will work together to deploy product field trials comprised of Dantherm Power’s direct hydrogen 2 kW DBX2000 fuel cell system as well as its 5 kW DBX5000 fuel cell system, which will be integrated by Delta, along with Delta’s Site Management and Control System (SMCS), and deployed at telecom sites in India. Delta will take responsibility for installation, commissioning, maintenance and management of these field deployments. The sites will be monitored remotely by Delta’s Network Operation Centre (NOC).

“This agreement represents a practical, managed approach to backup power market development in India,” said John Sheridan, CEO of Ballard and Chairman of Dantherm Power. “Delta will leverage its existing telecom industry relationships in order to identify interested customers, and will provide on-the-ground support throughout the trial period. Onsite expertise and customer support are the key to gaining traction with solutions that are new to the market, such as fuel cells, in the India telecom sector.”

These field trials will enable an informed assessment of the commercial market opportunity, including identification of appropriate fuel cell solutions. Commercial deployments in India would then benefit from Delta’s in-country marketing, sales, distribution and servicing capabilities.

“We are very pleased to be working with PEM fuel cell products from premier providers such as Dantherm Power and Ballard. This collaborative partnership has all the right elements for a successful evaluation of the market opportunity and for potential large-scale product roll-out down the road,” said Dalip Sharma, Managing Director of Delta Power Solutions.

Delta Power Solutions serves many of the largest service and infrastructure providers in the Indian telecom industry, including Indus, Bharti, Vodafone, Reliance and Idea Cellular.
