Taylor Construction Plant – IE-POWER

Zero-emission portable generators for off-grid and construction sites

Working with Taylor Construction Plant to bring clean power to construction sites and off-grid locations.

Developed by TCP Ltd (Taylor Construction Plant), the ECO GH2 is a hydrogen DC power generator that supplies near silent, zero emission and off grid power up to 1kW.

The ECO GH2 is a compact, easy to handle unit that provides off‑grid, zero emission power. The unit, fuelled by hydrogen, uses an IE‑POWER to produce a DC generator, which is capable of a maximum output of 1kW. The ECO GH2 can be used with DC power loads or with a TCP inverter power pack to produce an off‑grid AC generator unit of 5kW for power tools, accessories and welfare units, which can often be sited in locations where mains power is not available.

The powerful hydrogen DC generator offers considerable benefits when compared to similar petrol or diesel generators. The ECO GH2 is cleaner, smaller, lighter and requires minimal maintenance beyond a simple air filter replacement.

The electro chemical reaction, combining hydrogen with oxygen from the air, is importantly near silent, meaning the unit is suitable for use at night and in urban areas where noise needs to be kept to a minimum, specifically in relation to Section 61 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974. It can also be used in enclosed ventilated spaces or in close proximity to operators owing to the only emission being water vapour.

These features, coupled with the lack of ground spill risk associated with liquid fuels, also makes the ECO GH2 a perfect solution for sensitive sites, and for urban areas where noise and air pollution are major concerns.

The construction industry has come under increasing pressure in recent years to look at ways to reduce its carbon footprint, environmental and neighbourhood noise and risk of oil or diesel spillages. Products like the ECO GH2 are helping to achieve this.

Applications for IE-POWER

“The integration work carried out by Intelligent Energy provides us with a fantastic opportunity for a major step forward in our strategy for the introduction of increased kW zero emission power generation.”
