Ballard – Hydrogen Testing Facilities


As a consequence of a major increase in production demand and consequent need for major overhaul, Ballard Power Systems found it necessary to expand the Hydrogen testing facilities in one of their existing plants. Enginuity was retained to oversee this expansion, manage the project from inception to completion through supply of consultation, engineering design, and project management. The project involved substantial reconfiguration of existing production facilities as well as the installation of additional equipment to meet the demands.
