SMARTER ENERGY THROUGH FOCUSED FUEL CELL INNOVATION

FCvelocity – 9SSL
Ballard Power Systems offers a proton exchange
membrane (PEM) fuel cell stack based on our
proven, fourth generation, transportation stack
technology.

Available now to customers with fuel cell stack


integration capabilities, the FCvelocity–9SSL is
designed to perform in rugged conditions and
is available in a scalable series depending upon
customer requirements. Stacks are available in
power increments from approximately 4 to 19
kilowatts.

The FCvelocity–9SSL provides stable electrical

1. Values achieved at Ballard-specified conditions at the beginning of operational life.
2. Vibration: USABC 10. Shock: 5g sections of IEC 60068-2-27 Ea and IEC 60068-2-29 Eb.
3. Measured at the inlet, on a dry, molar basis. When using a recirculating fuel loop, incoming hydrogen purity of
≥ 99.999% H2 is recommended. Purging must be sufficient to maintain inert concentrations below stated maximum.
4. Insulate stack whenever possible to minimize heat loss.
