A story about the first hydrogen fuel cell-powered theatre recently caught Lost in CCI‘s eye, from The Stage (via the Arts Journal):

“North London’s Arcola Theatre has become the first venue to install an environmentally friendly hydrogen fuel cell to power the site. The 5kw fuel source, which operates almost silently and produces nothing but electricity and clean water, will run the theatre’s cafe-bar and selected main house productions.

“It has been installed in the foyer of the theatre, accompanied by displays describing the benefits and challenges of the new technology.”

    Please help quotation whom can contact for 5KW Fuel Cell.
    We need the Specification the following of 5KW.
    The biggest continuous output power is 5KW±10%
    Output voltage 42VDC to 56VDC
    Export electric current 13A to 109A
    Does the hydrogen have the lowest and the highest demand hydrogen per minute?
    Hydrogen is 99.95%±10% of purity.
    Can install it in 110VAC/60Hz and 220VAC/60Hz , possess and detect and examine the return circuit and manual function that start by force
    Operate temperature – 40C to 46C.
    The humidity is controlled: Accord with the humidity of 5KW or specified flow 75slpm.
    Under specified humidity 65, specified pressure 80±16psi.
    Direct current changes the package : The stability direct current is pressed as 48VDC±2% to accord with 5Kw electricity and export and convertible, Specified power is 5KW.
    Exchange and change the package : Accord with 5KW electricity and export and change and fasten wave alternating current 110VAC/60Hz and 220VAC/60Hz and exporting the electricity.
    Motor package of the fan: Accord with 5KW electricity and output and work the voltage as 24±0.5VDC.

    I am looking forward to your reply as soon as your possible.
