IGX Group’s H2 Fueling Services Supplies Hydrogen to the Telecommunications Industry

IGX Group has successfully launched its hydrogen fueling services in California to the telecommunications industry. With a distribution network covering the entire state, H2 Fueling Services can now provide telecommunications carriers with the hydrogen necessary to support their hydrogen fuel cells for back-up and grid-supplement power. This innovative service is supported by a fleet of composite cylinder equipped trailers that store and deliver high-pressure hydrogen to fuel cell locations. With a hydrogen capacity of 80 kgs, these trailers are DOT approved, and can be easily towed behind a ¾ ton truck.

“IGX Group’s H2 Fueling Services will encourage and increase adoption of the hydrogen fuel cells used by the telecommunications and other industries that require reliable back-up power”, states Michael Koonce, CEO of IGX Group, “With our composite transports and new hydrogen support program, we are able to provide a more economical, responsive, and logistically flexible solution than what is currently available.”Following the successful launch in California, H2 Fueling Services will be expanding to other key strategic regional markets including the Gulf Coast, Florida and Northeast by the end of 2013.

“IGX is working closely with the leading fuel cell manufacturers and the carriers to provide its H2 Fueling Services to those markets with the highest demand for back-up power particularly in areas highly prone to natural disaster” continues Koonce. “Our program and equipment will ensure hydrogen is delivered to the fuel cells in these locations when necessary for back up power due to weather or other events. We are pleased to be an integral part of the solution.”

“We appreciate the work IGX Group has done in the hydrogen refueling space,” stated Gary Flood, ReliOn President & CEO.  “Having a readily-available, easy to source supply of hydrogen is integral to providing the long runtimes our customers need during weather and other outage events.  IGX Group’s refueling model makes it easier to reach the increasing variety of customer locations. In the end, making refueling convenient makes it easier for our customers to take advantage of the highly reliable, clean energy provided by fuel cells.”
