100kW Liquid cooled Fuel Cell VL-Series
At 100kW this is currently one of the highest power output fuel cell stacks that Horizon sells. It is designed for heavy-duty applications like Class 8 trucks, ships, and other energy demanding areas. Unlike battery electric vehicles which are really only useable in the light-duty mobility sector, PEM fuel cells are perfectly able to power everything from a remote-control car 1/10th the size of a standard sized light-duty vehicle all the way up to airplanes and container ships. With so many zero emission mobility applications it is easy to see why hydrogen fuel cell technology is not only eco-friendly but also why it is the keystone to achieving a zero emission global economy.

Fuel Cell and Hydrogen
Do not attach or detach power cables when the fuel cell stack is turned on.
Warranty is void if the fuel cell stack is dismantled or otherwise modified.
Hydrogen is a colorless, odorless, and flammable substance. Always operate and store the fuel cell stacks and hydrogen storage canisters in an area with ample ventilation.
Fuel cell systems should always be equipped with a highly accurate hydrogen sensor to detect any hydrogen that has escaped within the system or from the hydrogen storage canister.
Please refer to the VL 100 User Manual to see the full list of the safety requirements for the product.
List of core VL-100 components and their functionality:
- Air filter (Purifying air)
- Air flow meter (Monitoring feedback of air flow)
- Hydrogen heat exchanger (Increase the temperature of reaction hydrogen)
- Intercooler (Reduce the temperature of the air entering the fuel cell stack)
- Humidifier (Adds moisture to the air entering the stack)
- Bypass valve (Divert excess air from the air compressor and protect the stack in case of emergency)
- Throttle valve (Regulate the internal operating pressure of the stack)
- Radiator (Removes excess heat from the system)
- PTC heater (Heating for low temperature cold start)
- Water tank (Refill water to and purge air for the system)
- Ion Exchange (Absorbs the ions in the coolant, reducing the conductivity of the coolant)
- Low voltage distribution box (Provide low voltage distribution to the system)
- Controller (Control system, communication between system and vehicle)
- Fuel cell stack (Oxygen and hydrogen react to produce power)
