What is the H2PS-5?2019-12-10T10:09:10+02:00

H2PS-5, is a micro power generating unit. The unit is designed for dual operation, to function either as stand-alone power system delivering up to 5 kW electric power or as a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) system, delivering additionally up to 6 kW thermal energy in the form of hot water. The system is multi-fuel fed, i.e. it can operate with either Natural Gas, Propane/LPG or Biogas, converting it to electrical power through an intermediate production of hydrogen (via steam reforming) using a Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEM-FC)

What is H2PS-5 product’s claims?2019-12-10T10:11:06+02:00
  • Electrical Efficiency greater than 35%, while Total Efficiency exceeds 85%
  • Operating cost (Fuel) is more than 2 times lower of a conventional diesel generator (0.23 €/kWh vs 0.58 €/kWh)
  • 50% reduced Maintenance Cost (compared to the maintenance cost of conventional power generators) due to simplicity of construction
  • Dramatically reduced emissions (Prometheus-5 emits 170 times lower amounts of NOx and HC, 27 times lower amounts of CO and zero amounts of SOx)
  • The system is multi-fuel fed, i.e. it can operate with either Natural Gas, LPG or Biogas
  • Very low noise and vibration levels
  • Improved safety (no flames)
  • Excellent performance at partial loads
