UK’s First Hydrogen Power Generator Showcased

Commercial Fuel Solutions

Commercial Fuel Solutions Limited, specialists in the design, development and distribution of fuel storage and transfer systems, showcased the UK’s first commercially available hydrogen internal combustion power generator. As exclusive UK distributors for Belgian generator specialists, e-power, Commercial Fuel Solutions Ltd will be offering the 45 kVA Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine (H2ICE) Electrical Power Generator for purchase and hire. Showcasing the H2ICE generator at the Hillhead Show, the UK’s premier construction event, the partnership underscores Commercial Fuel Solutions’ knowledge and expertise with respect to safe hydrogen deployments.

The e-power® E45 hydrogen power generator is a ground-breaking product designed to operate on any grade of hydrogen, revolutionising the benchmarks for clean, efficient, and cost-effective energy generation. Utilising a hydrogen combustion engine, this generator is a more robust technology than traditional fuel cell technologies, providing a resilient solution for diverse power requirements at a fraction of the usual capital expenditure (CAPEX).

Robin Futcher, Founder and CEO of Commercial Fuel Solutions, said; “We are thrilled to showcase the 45 kVA H2ICE Electrical Power generator at Hillhead. This generator is ideal for construction companies looking for a cost-effective, eco-friendly, and high-performance solution for power generation. With its lower CAPEX, ability to withstand fuel impurities, and decreased fuel expenses, it is the clear choice for businesses committed to investing in the future of hydrogen energy and making substantial strides in reducing their carbon footprint.”

Commercial Fuel Solutions offers a comprehensive turnkey package. Alongside the H2ICE generator, the company conducts thorough site safety risk assessments to ensure suitability, integrating DSEAR risk assessments with zoning diagrams and compliance checks. Specially trained technicians manage the installation and commissioning of the generator, while providing necessary training, permits for work, and safe operation oversight. Additionally, Commercial Fuel Solutions provides all service, maintenance, and emergency call-out coverage within the warranty period.

Moreover, Commercial Fuel Solutions can supply hydrogen safely and reliably, offer remote fuel consumption monitoring, and seamlessly integrate systems into the customer’s existing infrastructure.

The 45 kVA H2ICE Generator utilises hydrogen combustion to produce dependable electrical power, offering an emissions-free alternative to traditional fossil fuel-based generators. This method not only ensures minimal emissions but also capitalises on the cost efficiencies of hydrogen when used as a fuel source. Unlike fuel cell-based systems, the H2ICE generator is less vulnerable to impurities in the hydrogen supply, ensuring sustained reliability and reducing fuel costs over time. This affordability makes the E45 hydrogen power generator an attractive option for businesses and operations aiming to minimise their environmental impact through hydrogen power.

Engineered for durability and easy maintenance, the E45 H2ICE Electrical Power Generator’s sturdy design is suitable for various applications, from industrial uses to emergency backup power, ensuring uninterrupted critical operations. With reduced fuel expenses and environmental advantages, it presents an ideal solution for forward-thinking enterprises committed to achieving sustainability objectives without sacrificing power or performance.
