The “AurigaGen” Hydrogen Fuel cell
We can tailor our system to suit numerous applications, The AurigaGen is a high-effciency modular electricity generator system that can be
both primary power and stand-by power. Our modular adapted to meet multiple applications, for example the system currently powers a

The main components of the systems are identical, however the output element is
tailored to specifc needs of the application.
The system has proven reliability and utilises the state-of-the art fuel cells. With safety
assured, the system can be installed indoors. The AurigaGen delivers quiet, stable
continuous power with no pollution for a clean environment.
What sets us apart from the competition?
The fexibility and architecture of the proven AurigaGen system is the key. We can
design, build and install systems in a very short timescale.

We are looking to introduce our innovative UPS/backup power system to potential
customers and key stakeholders. In support of this, we will welcome appropriate
introductions and publicity.
