TROPICAL, a developer of fuel-cell power generation systems, has declared that its GreenGen N5, 5 KW natural-gas fuel-cell power systems will be installed by ASPATE, a company that develops large-scale energy projects. These power systems will be installed in 500 new houses that come under the bioclimatic residential construction project of ASPATE.
ASPATE will construct more than 500 green energy houses across Greece by installing advanced eco-friendly technologies in the next three years. Using these advanced technologies, which include fuel, solar and geothermic cells, all these houses will become energy self sufficient.
According to the CEO and President of ASPATE, Konstantinos Aslanidis, the company has planned to construct more than 5000 environment-friendly houses across Greece by 2020. TROPICAL has a good product collection and sound business strategy that is in line with ASPATE’s vision to build future homes. ASPATE is focusing on second home buyers to market its houses, added Aslanidis.
The product range from TROPICAL includes natural gas, methanol, hydrogen and propane powered solutions, which can be used for portable and stationary applications ranging from 100 W to 20 kW. It is one of the first companies to use hydrogen fuel cells for electric cars, boats and scooters. Currently, it works on fuel cell usage for mini buses.
TROPIC1AL’s 5 KW natural-gas powered fuel-cell system GreenGen NG-5 will be exhibited and demonstrated at the Hannover Hydrogen + Fuel Cells tradeshow, which will be held on 23-27 April, 2012.
