PowiDian expands its MobHyl Power range with the launch of its new hydrogen generator set: the M110
La Ville-aux-Dames, 27 October 2021 – PowiDian, French specialist in green hydrogen powered generators and light utility vehicles, announced today the launch of the M110, its new hydrogen powered generator. The M110 is currently available for sale and for rental from January 2022.
Anis Ayoub, MobHyl Power BU Director at PowiDian, comments: “The development and launch of this new unit is part of our approach to expanding our MobHyl Power range, which is dedicated to companies who are committed to an ecological transition strategy. The M110 is a concrete solution for replacing fossil fuels. Thanks to the feedback from the M30 model, we are offering an even more powerful, reliable, robust and autonomous model, particularly suited to the needs of construction sites or public events.”
Specification suited to high-pressure environments
The M110 offers an output of 110kVA thanks to its 70kW fuel cell and 60kWh of built-in Li-ion batteries. It is suitable for use in sub-zero temperatures down to -20°C, without the need for an external power supply, making it an ideal choice for winter construction sites, in addition to its instant start-up and responsiveness.
This new model integrates an intelligent control system with an intuitive interface, PowiDian’s “Master Controller”. It enables consumption optimisation and management control of the set in a remote, secure way.
The M110 has a market-leading 10-year service life, thanks to its fuel cell derived from heavy-duty mobility. This fuel cell also improves the overall reliability of the power supply compared to other generators with cells from lighter vehicles.
No compromises on carbon emissions
The M110 incorporates PowiDian’s expertise in environmentally friendly technologies. The generator emits no greenhouse gases, fine particles, nor any other pollutants.
Jean-Marie Bourgeais, Founder and Director of PowiDian, adds: “Our objective is simple: to participate in the development of the hydrogen value chain, which in recent months has seen significant enthusiasm from manufacturers and unprecedented support from the French and European public authorities. The M110 is a concrete solution for replacing traditional fossil fuel generators, allowing manufacturers in all sectors to decarbonise their activities without modifying their existing infrastructure. We are working hand in hand with local green hydrogen producers so that our customers can supply our generators in the most responsible way possible, pending the structuring of a strong and resilient French low-carbon hydrogen industry.”
