Heliocentris granted worldwide service contract by Ballard Power Systems

(PresseBox) ( Berlin, )
Heliocentris Fuel Cells AG, a leading fuel cell system integrator, today announces a new agreement with strategic partner Ballard Power Systems (Canada), a world leader in clean energy fuel cell products. Under this new agreement Ballard has transferred the post-warranty technical customer service for its Nexaâ power modules to Heliocentris.

Ballard Power Systems has granted Heliocentris worldwide rights to operate as the technical customer service provider for Ballard's Nexaâ power modules. Heliocentris will now be the contact point for all previous and new customers, both industrial and academic, throughout the world. Heliocentris will provide product support and servicing for two years after the last Nexaâ power module sale, which is expected to be in 2009, as Ballard will stop production of these power modules in 2008. Heliocentris will, however, offer an improved successor product based on Ballard's next generation Mark1020 ACS(TM) fuel cells.

"This arrangement is validation of our servicing capabilities based on more than 10 years experience in marketing fuel cell systems," said Dr. Henrik Colell, CEO of Heliocentris Fuel Cells AG. "Furthermore, this shows the trust Ballard has in us."

"This agreement between Ballard and Heliocentris is based on four years of commercial cooperation between our companies," said Paul Cass, Director of Customer Service at Ballard Power Systems. "Throughout this time we have been impressed by Heliocentris' technological competence and quality of work," he added.
