HYDROGENICS SELECTED FOR AIR FORCE FUEL CELL BUS IN HAWAII.

Hydrogenics Corporation, (TSE: HYG and NASDAQ: HYGS), Toronto, a designer and manufacturer of fuel cell systems, has been contracted by the High Technology Development Corporation (HTDC) in Hawaii to provide HyPM power modules for a 30-foot fuel cell hybrid bus. This initiative is being funded by the U.S. Air Force to evaluate advanced ground transportation technologies. Under the terms of the contract Hydrogenics will supply a fully integrated 20 kW fuel cell power system and related peripherals.

"This is an exciting opportunity for Hydrogenics to help advance the deployment of clean fuel cell technology," said Pierre Rivard, Hydrogenics President and CEO. "It is very gratifying that the HTDC recognized the strengths of Hydrogenics' technology and technical support. This project furthers our goal of placing our fuel cell power modules into a variety of working applications."

HTDC is a State agency tasked with the development and growth of Hawaii's commercial high technology industry. It provides broad based programs ranging from incubation to federal research and development partnerships to marketing. Through the HTDC, this project will be the Air Force's first opportunity to test extended range on a zero-emission heavy vehicle, evaluating its performance during routine operations. Additionally, the project will involve an evaluation of the challenges associated with hydrogen generation to support operation of the bus.

"The Air Force is excited about deploying fuel cell technology," said Carl Perazzola, chief, Advanced Power Technology Office, Robins Air Force Base. "The fuel cell module manufactured by Hydrogenics is one of a limited number of fully integrated fuel cell systems able to be fielded today as a working unit. We are looking forward to baseline the performance of this bus and accelerate fuel cells to commercialization."
