Participation by Ballard at "Intelec2013" Exhibition & Conference in Hamburg

Ballard attended the "Intelec 2013" exhibition & conference in Hamburg, Germany last week.

INTELEC 2013

Intelec 2013 is an international forum for the exchange of information on energy and power for communication systems. The conference provides a unique opportunity for designers, manufacturers and distributors of power equipment as well as network operators to interact directly with researchers and users. Discussion covered a wide variety of topics related to power systems, components and energy storage technologies, including an exchange of operational experiences and related energy topics.

Ballard launched our new outdoor ElectraGen™-H2 system enclosure just prior to Intelec 23013. The system is a modular solution that can be fully customized for customers' specific application requirements. Incorporating 1.7kW or 5kW rack-mountable fuel cell stacks, this outdoor enclosure offers reliable power for outdoor telecom applications.

BALLARD CAB MEETING
Ballard also hosted a "CUSTOMER ADVISORY BOARD" meeting at the Radisson Blu Hotel during Intelec 2013. The well-attended meeting of end-customers and channel partners – predominantly from Europe and South Africa – provided a valuable opportunity to exchange information and discuss important topics related to Telecom Backup Power, including: Ballard Customer Service plans; ElectraGenTM product functionality; as well as product roadmaps. In addition, speakers from NSN, Inala Technologies (South Africa) and CHEM Group (China) added insightful perspectives regarding developments in their markets and product deployment experiences.

Requiring just a single fastener (lag bolt or self-drilling), GreenFasten provides the fastest install in the industry and will not void roofing manufacturer's warranties. Backed by IAPMO certification, GreenFasten delivers a mounting solution for all new or existing (retrofit) composition shingle roofs, and is the most cost-effective solution available. Like all of the solar roof mount solutions in our line of products, GreenFasten is made in the USA using recycled materials.
