Next Hydrogen Receives Order for Third Electrolyzer from Canadian Tire Corporation
Canadian Tire Corporation has confirmed its purchase of a third electrolyzer (Model NH-300) from Next Hydrogen Corporation. This electrolyzer will produce pure hydrogen from water and supports Canadian Tire’s on-going implementation of hydrogen energy in its material handling operations. Next Hydrogen, a Canadian manufacturer of large scale electrolyzers, has designed an innovative system to meet the performance challenges set by Canadian Tire which include: a production capacity of 650 kilograms of hydrogen per day, a service life over twice the industrial average for electrolyzers and a service availability greater than 95%. This generation of hydrogen fuel through electrolysis, using Ontario’s low carbon electric grid, creates an energy solution to supply a large scale, motive materials handling fleet while achieving a distinctly low carbon emissions footprint.
Next Hydrogen Corporation, manufacturer of advanced hydrogen electrolysers, is pleased to announce the appointment of Walter Q. Howard as CEO and Board Member.
Walter brings extensive experience in operations, business development, finance, and M&A in the utility industry. He has held CEO, EVP and SVP positions with innovators in related syngas, wind energy, and cogeneration firms including Westinghouse Plasma Corp (TSX: “NRG”), Zegen, Noble Environmental Power (developer/owner of 484 wind turbines), General Electric Capital, and US Generating, as well as water industry experience.
Walter’s career spans more than 35 years of successfully executed technology development and implementation, project development, execution and project finance. His projects have won multiple industry awards. He holds a Master’s degree in Engineering from Cornell University and a MBA from Harvard University. Matthew Fairlie continues to be an integral member of the team, and member of the Board.
Next Hydrogen Receives Order for Hydrogen Generation System from Canadian Tire
Next Hydrogen Corporation, a manufacturer of hydrogen production systems, has received a purchase order that signals the start of the construction cycle of an electrolyser based hydrogen fuel production facility in Canada. The facility's electrolyser splits water to manufacture hydrogen gas and vents the oxygen to the atmosphere - analogous to the O2 contribution from a small forest of trees. Hydrogen is a safe fuel and the implementation of hydrogen energy systems is in accordance with the Canadian Hydrogen Installation Code (CHIC). As Canada proceeds into 2016 and seeks renewable and sustainable methods to support the climate change imperatives this development marks real progress.
Next Hydrogen Corporation to Supply Hydrogen Generator to Canadian Tire Corporation
Next Hydrogen Corporation has been selected by Canadian Tire Corporation (CTC) to supply a hydrogen generator for use in CTC’s Powered by Hydrogen pilot project. The hydrogen generator will produce high purity hydrogen gas from water. The hydrogen is used to fuel a PEM fuel cell which generates electricity without combustion emissions - replacing lead acid batteries. Hydrogen is clean renewable energy which supports sustainability goals. CTC is analyzing the productivity improvements achievable by using hydrogen energy in its mobile equipment operations.
“We are pleased to be working with Next Hydrogen Corporation as a key member of our project team. It is important for us to use a Canadian technology leader that has a thorough understanding of our priorities of system efficiency and a commitment to delivering life cycle value” said Brad Chittick, Associate Vice President, Supply Chain Facilities and Maintenance, Canadian Tire Corporation.
“We are excited to have the opportunity to work with CTC, a world-class leader in applying technology to supply chain operations. CTC has rigorous standards of performance for its suppliers and we are honored to be competitively selected” said Jim Hinatsu, CEO of Next Hydrogen Corporation.
Next Hydrogen Corporation is a Canadian Supplier of advanced, large-scale water electrolyser systems and modules. Please see www.nexthydrogen.ca for additional information.
