Representatives from a Canadian
Telecommunication Company visited Powerzinc Electric
(Shanghai) Inc. on April 6, 2004 to discuss the
possibility of applying DQFC Zinc Air Fuel Cell in the
communicatin power supply system.
The said Canadian Telecommunication
Company originally planned to use Lead-Acid batteries as
the power source, which can only last about 1 hour on
standby. In comparison with Lead-Acid batteries,
Powerzinc's DQFC Zinc Air Fuel Cells can provide more than
6 hours standby time with much more lighter weight.
Besides, communication engineering often involves field
operations, where electric network is seldom available.
This is critical to the Lead-Acid batteries as they are
dependent on electric network for recharging. Obviously
DQFC Zinc Air Fuel Cell has more potential applications
due to its refueling mode of replacement of the "fuel"
zinc plates. Both parties have agreed to have further
detailed cooperation in the near future.
Powerzinc Electric, Inc.
is a California-based Hi-Tech company. It is dedicated to
the research, development, manufacturing and
commercialization of advanced zinc-air fuel cells and
entire manufacture facilities, along with fuel cells
refuel service platform. Through years of R&D, Powerzinc
has achieved significant breakthroughs in zinc-air fuel
cell technology and developed the high power, large
energy, long-lasting, low cost and environment-friendly
power and energy source. Its innovative products - DQFC
series of zinc-air fuel cells with creative design and
process technology is a totally renewable energy for
electric vehicles and various other applications today.
About Powerzinc Electric
In Shanghai, China, Powerzinc has
established a zinc-air fuel cell manufacturing and service
model plant to commercialize the technology and its
products. The plant is ready for commercial-scale
production. The Company has started supplying DQFC series
zinc-air fuel cells to manufacturers of Electric Bicycles
and Electric Scooters. In the near future, the new series
of DQFC zinc-air fuel cells for Electric Buses, Defense
and Security, Communication and other applications will be
available to the commercial market soon to satisfy
the real highly growing
demand anywhere in the world.
