Power Cell’s Auxiliary Power Unit (APU), the PowerPac, takes power generation to a new level. By using worldwide available road diesel, electric power generation is now cleaner and more efficient than ever before.
Diesel fuel was the first choice for fuelling the system, as it for many years on will be the dominating fuel in the transport sector. Its high energy content makes it suitable also for remote off grid installations. As diesel today in many countries is partly renewable it will be an attractive energy source and bridge the gap to the zero emission society.
The PowerPac produces no toxic emissions due to the controlled catalytic process in the reformer. The conversion is also highly efficient making fuel cost low compared to traditional solutions. Since no combustion takes place the noise level is kept to a minimum.

Clean and Efficient Power Wherever it is Needed
PowerCell’s fuel cell system converts diesel to electricity in a reliable, competitive and environmentally friendly way. It operates silently and has no noxious emissions.
Lower operating expenses: Diesel is the lowest cost source of hydrogen and available even in remote areas. The PowerPac is typically 20-30% more fuel-efficient than a diesel generator with batteries. It requires no on-site maintenance. Exhausted components are easily replaced for a long operational life. It is an operationally effective choice in many situations.
Rationalized activities, inventory and systems: The system is typically simpler than alternatives, and requires no on-site maintenance. Its components are not attractive to thieves. This allows support systems to be rationalized.
Environmentally friendly: Low noise, reduced carbon footprint, zero noxious emissions.
As a primary power supply system it is expected to be up to 30% more cost efficient per kWh (using a overall-lifetime, total cost comparison) compared to a diesel generator/solar panels and batteries. It allows the activities, inventory and physical systems related to the power supply to be rationalized, improving the cost comparison even further.
