Trulite, Inc., developer and manufacturer of portable and semi-portable
hybrid power generators, announced today that the company has been
awarded a $531,000 naval development contract to develop a high energy
density hydrogen generation system that can provide up to five hundred
watts of power in a compact, portable unit.
Trulite has been awarded this contract to develop a system for the Navy
that allows for substantial power capacity in a small package, with
hydrogen storage capabilities greater than two thousand watt-hours per
“This development program has the potential to
provide a significant energy density increase in hydrogen fueling
solutions for both military and commercial portable power products. This
type of system will allow military personnel to be more mobile and more
capable on the battlefield. Investment in the development of
technologies such as these provides a front line advantage and is vital
to the success of our nation’s military,”
said Ken Pearson, COO of Trulite.
The focus of the development will be for power needs that span across a
wide set of military applications including: small vehicles, autonomous
robots, remote telecommunications, backup power, battery chargers,
medical evacuations, mobile command, and numerous others.
“Trulite has proven itself as a leader in
solid hydrogen storage from its deployment of commercial PEM fuel cells
utilizing solid sodium borohydride hydrogen generation technology,”
said Ron Seftick, president of Trulite. “This
expertise makes Trulite uniquely equipped to design and develop this
type of product.”
In addition, Trulite will leverage the chemical proficiency of
BoroScience International, Inc. in this project. BoroScience specializes
in the formulation of raw chemical hydride compounds and will be
developing a proprietary compound as the core ingredient in the new high
energy density hydrogen generation system.
