Market and product match

A cost-effective and reliable power unit

As a green alternative to conventional generators and auxiliary power units, Blue World Technologies’ state-of-the-art methanol fuel cell system is flexible, reliable, and presents a strong business case. 

With a focus on high electrical efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness, Blue World Technologies provides fuel cell solutions for stationary applications and APUs for a wide variety of industries around the world, e.g. the telecommunication industry where methanol fuel cells are widely recognised to power telco towers. 

Due to the environmental advantages of the fuel cell system, with low noise and vibrations and elimination of particle emissions, the system complies with environmental restrictions making it ideal for both installations in densely populated areas. It can be rooftop installations, but also in greenfield sites where the impact to the surrounding nature should be reduced to a minimum. 

The methanol fuel cell system is made as a hybrid configuration with a smaller battery pack and can work both with and without grid connection. The system can be used in combination with renewable energy sources such as solar or wind turbines. 

With high efficiency, operation costs are reduced, both in terms of fuel and service costs, providing a strong business case for our customers with a lower OPEX (operating expense) and TCO (total cost of ownership) compared to diesel generators.

Benefits for the market

Methanol fuel cell solutions for stationary applications and auxiliary power units provide significant benefits compared to the use of conventional diesel generators.

Low noise and vibrations

With only a few moving parts, the methanol fuel cell system has a very low noise and vibration level making it ideal for installations in densely populated areas such as rooftop installations.

Making it green together

The methanol fuel cell system is a solution that enables the use of electricity from renewable sources like wind and solar in a liquid form.

With a worldwide focus on green energy, new technologies are required to support the transition away from fossil fuels. The methanol fuel cell technology is a strong candidate for making a difference in this transition. Through a high electrical efficiency, the methanol fuel cells enable the use of liquid methanol in an efficient way benefitting the climate and the environment.

Blue World Technologies’ methanol fuel cell system has a significantly reduced CO2 emission regardless of the origin of the methanol, but if the methanol is produced from renewable sources, the operation is CO2 neutral. Due to the technical advantages of the system, all NOx, SOx, and particle emissions are eliminated contributing to cleaner air for the surrounding environment.
