The Ecolite TH200 hydrogen fuel cell off-grid light tower was developed in partnership with BOC, a Linde company, using its HYMERA® fuel cell generator technology.

The light towers produce zero emissions at the point of delivery, are virtually silent in operation and use prismatic lens technology to eliminate light pollution.

“It’s great to be replacing particulate-belching diesel-powered lighting with a less polluting lower carbon system,” said Councillor Caroline Russell, Highbury East ward, Islington and London Assembly member.

“This is the perfect way to help fix the air pollution crisis and tackle the climate emergency.”

There are currently there are two Ecolite TH200 hydrogen fuel cell light towers being used onsite by Ringway Jacobs who embraced the product after successful trial.

Michael Barratt MBE, together with Caroline Russell, supports the use of zero emission lighting, and the refuelling of these units in a safe, sustainable, and cost-effective manner, “It’s fantastic news that companies such as TCP are willing to try environmentally friendly methods of delivery.”

“The more open to change we become, the more we promote sustainability, the better things will be.”
