Acta, the provider of clean energy products and environmental catalysts, announced that its EL100 Hydrogen Generator has won the prestigious Qualitec Technology Award 2010 at the international Seatec trade exhibition for boats, yachts and ships. The award recognises innovation in the nautical sector.
The Seatec exhibition, which ran from 10 to 12 February, is Italy’s leading nautical and marine supplies exhibition attracting thousands of visitors and exhibitors. The Company exhibited its hydrogen generator coupled with a 1KW fuel cell power generator used to power an electric outboard motor. The technical judges of the Qualitec panel selected Acta’s hydrogen generator for its innovation, low cost and environmental profile, three features which were judged to promote the nautical sector’s aspirations for sustainability and zero environmental impact.
This award represents significant industry recognition for Acta, whose inexpensive hydrogen conversion technologies are making fuel cell applications more practical and accessible for everyday use. The EL100 Hydrogen Generator is a simple, compact, low-cost and highly efficient system which is ideal for markets with high volume demand for reliable, local energy, including marine, light transport, UPS and domestic and commercial power. Acta shared the First Place award with Volkswagen for their introduction of a new marine propulsion system.
