Hymera hydrogen generator helps solve project conundrums


The new system from BOC, a member of The Linde Group, promises to power a wide range of applications, particularly monitoring. The Hymera DC incorporates an automatic battery charger, so that power can be maintained in locations where changing batteries is not practicable.

Casey Fleming, Morgan Sindall’s Environmental Manager and Hymera customer said, “The Hymera hydrogen fuel cell’s innovative qualities helped us solve a difficult project conundrum. The cell has now successfully powered a remote noise monitor for eight weeks, the location of which was proving difficult to supply with conventional power. We needed it to operate silently, which was impossible with traditional power generators.”

When used in conjunction with BOC’s 54ZH portable hydrogen fuel cylinder, the Hymera DC can provide 2-3 kWh of electrical energy. Depending on conditions, this is equivalent to around 75kg of lead-acid batteries.

The 54ZH is a user-friendly integrated ‘energy source’ which removes the need for pressure regulators and uses easy hand-operated connections. A single cylinder promises to keep a 3W average load powered for almost one month, or a 20W security camera powered for approximately five days.
