Fuel Cell

The heart of the Gatorâ„¢ fuel cell power system consists of an Energy Partners Model IB 10 kW fuel cell stack. The stack contains 60 advanced membrane electrode assemblies, with an active area of780 cm2/cell. This stack is a direct result of a grant from the Florida Energy Office for the commercialization of fuel cells, as well as Energy Partners' successful involvement in the DOE sponsored contract with Ford Motor Company, PEM Fuel Cell for Transportation. The stack uses collector plates which are manufactured by Energy Partners through a two-step compression molding process. Final machining of reactant headers and manifolds, as well as manufacture of end plates and bus plates, are also accomplished in our facilities, using a CNC milling machine.
