Erwin Hymer Group North America (EHGNA) Inc. has signed an exclusive supply and engineering cooperative agreement with Mount Pleasant, Pa.-based Watt Fuel Cell Corp. to introduce the Watt Fuel Cell technology into the RV market.
The exclusive agreement between the two parties will introduce the Watt Imperium fuel cell into the proprietary EcoTrek technology currently used by Erwin Hymer Group. According to a press release, the combination of the Watt fuel cell and the established EcoTrek technology will enable consumers to travel and achieve a mobile leisure lifestyle, living off the grid while having virtually silent, on-demand power and achieving almost zero emissions.
“This is a really exciting and important partnership as the two technologies combined allowed owners to live off the grid, anywhere, anytime, and always have power and charging capability using the Watt Imperium fuel cell as long as they can fill their propane tank,” said Jim Hammill, EHGNA president and CEO. “They will do so, knowing that they are producing little to no emissions. We have always been dedicated to being as green as possible both in our manufacturing processes and our technologies, so this is a perfect fit.”
“We are pleased to be working with Erwin Hymer Group North America, a forward thinking innovative consumer products company, and are excited to be launching our products as part of their platform,” said Caine Finnerty, president and CEO of Watt Fuel Cell. “Our combined engineering and business resources will be pooled to achieve a real market impact for the hybrid clean technology solution we have been developing for many years here at WATT.”
The integration of the Watt Imperium Fuel Cell allows the use of a propane to create clean electricity and heat, and allows Erwin Hymer Group North America, Inc. to affordably put in place a method of creating clean electricity.
