Hydrogenics Provides Clean Energy Hydrogen Generation System to Shell-Hydrogen for California Hydrogen Highway

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Hydrogenics Corporation (TSX:HYG) (NASDAQ:HYGS), a leading designer and manufacturer of hydrogen electrolyzers and fuel cell systems, today announced that it has provided an integrated hydrogen generation system to Shell Hydrogen LLC. The fueling station, which opened today in Los Angeles as part of California's Hydrogen Highway initiative, will generate hydrogen on site to service the increasing demands of hydrogen-powered consumer vehicles.

Hydrogenics provided an integrated hydrogen fueling station, based on its highly modular standard product line, including electrolyzer, compressor, storage, and dispensing systems. In order to meet the demanding space requirements of the fueling station, Hydrogenics implemented a canopy system where all the components are mounted on the roof of the station canopy, minimizing the footprint of the hydrogen station. In addition, Hydrogenics' electrolyzers produce hydrogen from water, providing the most environmentally friendly approach to hydrogen generation.

California is the most developed state in the U.S.A. in terms of Hydrogen energy, reflected by Governor Swartzeneger's promise of 200 Hydrogen refueling stations in California before he retires. "The experience gained in our 50-year history positions Hydrogenics to meet the rapid growth of the Hydrogen highway," said Daryl Wilson, President and CEO of Hydrogenics. "Our modular product offering is highly scaleable and configurable to meet widely varying requirements," added Wilson. Hydrogenics has installed over 30 fueling stations deriving hydrogen through electrolysis, which is the most environmentally friendly approach to hydrogen generation.
