Intelligent Energy Holdings plc and Luxfer-GTM Technologies have formed a strategic Transatlantic relationship to develop a line of integrated fuel cell products.

The first order under the stationary power deal between the UK-based and US-based companies is for 600 units of Intelligent Energy’s low power 1kW Fuel Cell Modules (FCMs) to be integrated into Luxfer-GTM’s Zero-Set Lite portable light towers.

The collaboration will also see Intelligent Energy mobilise its global network to assist sales of Luxfer-GTM’s products internationally.

By integrating Intelligent Energy’s FCMs into Luxfer-GTM’s Zero-Set generator line, the partnership aims to provide a commercially available, low cost, zero-emission of generators for wide scale applications.

Martin Bloom, Group CEO at Intelligent Energy, stated, “There is significant opportunity for Intelligent Energy to deploy its market-ready technology into similar markets as more companies search for proven and alternative solutions to power their products both more efficiently and responsibly.”

“[Luxfer-GTM] were very impressed with the increased power output Intelligent Energy’s products can offer in such a lightweight and robust package, and with the opportunity to grow with us as our product range develops,” Bloom added.

Headquartered in Loughborough, Intelligent Energy is focused on clean energy solutions and aims to embed its fuel cell stack technology into applications across specific target market sectors, whilst Luxfer-GTM is a joint venture formed to engineer and manufacture lightweight, high pressure, gas transports using composite cylinder technology.
