UQM said the product is designed to meet growing demand in the fuel cell market for a high-performance, cost-effective compressor solution. Few competitors feature an integrated high-efficiency motor and controller, the company said, making UQM’s model the lowest cost, space-optimized design that can be adapted to different compressor options.

“We have seen great progress with our fuel cell compressors over the past few years, and our customers have requested that we optimize our system for performance and cost,” said Joe Mitchell, UQM CEO.

“Based on this feedback, and general market demand, we have made a significant strategic investment to design and launch what we feel is the premier fuel cell compressor system in the market today.

“We’ll be introducing this product in China -- the largest market for fuel cell technology globally, particularly in heavy-duty applications. Initial feedback from potential customers has been very positive, and we look forward to launching the system in early 2019.”

UQM said customers may begin placing orders now in advance of the product rollout in 2019.
