IdaTech and Cascadiant Showcase Backup Power Fuel Cells at CommunicAsia

BEND, OR--(Marketwire - June 15, 2010) -  IdaTech plc (AIM: IDA), a global leader in the development and manufacture of clean and reliable extended run backup power fuel cell products, in conjunction with its partner Cascadiant Inc., is pleased to announce its participation at CommunicAsia.

CommunicAsia is the 21st International Communications and Information Technology Exhibition & Conference. The four-day exhibition is a perfect showcase to present the latest technological developments and product innovations for backup power fuel cells.

Participating for the fourth year, IdaTech, together with Cascadiant will promote its next generation ElectraGen™ ME Fuel Cell System -- a five kilowatt fully integrated solution that enables extended run backup power for telecom base stations. The ElectraGen™ product family can be powered by hydrogen gas or by IdaTech's proprietary fuel reformer system which converts liquid fuel (methanol-water) into high-purity hydrogen onsite as needed. The ElectraGen™ ME provides 24 or 48 VDC backup power for telecommunications applications and is a replacement for traditional solutions such as batteries and diesel generators, but with greater reliability and significantly reduced maintenance. 

Visit IdaTech and Cascadiant at the Singapore Expo, booth#SK1-12, during the CommunicAsia Conference, June 15-18th.
