First fuel cell sale confirmed

Intelligent Energy has announced its first sale of fuel cell systems for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).

It’s signed a deal with PINC, which uses UAVs to identify and orchestrate hard-to-reach inventory and assets in the global supply chain.

Intelligent Energy claims its fuel cell systems offer longer flight time, fast refuel capabilities and flexibility for varying payloads.

Julian Hughes, senior VP Intelligent Energy Inc, said, ‘I am delighted to announce the first sales of our fuel cell systems for UAV application. PINC is leading the way with the use of hydrogen fuel cell UAVs in the supply chain and we are certain they will be impressed with the benefits our fuel cells will offer over conventional batteries. We look forward to a long relationship with them.’

Martin Bloom, Group CEO at Intelligent Energy, added, ‘PINC is based in California, a state that is proactively adopting hydrogen. We see this region as a significant market for Intelligent Energy’s range of market-ready fuel cell products.’
