TM4’s Motive brand high-RPM motors were selected by Ballard for their proven reliability, quality and high power density, TM4 says.

“The air supply of a fuel cell is a very critical system,” states a release. “A robust, compact and efficient motor is essential to the design of a fuel cell.

Costs Have Been Cut

“The selection of TM4’s products was also driven by the cost optimization process of the development of this new generation of FCvelocity-HD power module,” the company said. “TM4 has made significant progress through its global supply chain in order to lower cost and support Ballard in the worldwide deployment of its new FCvelocity-HD7.”

“This new project has allowed TM4 to optimize our products for fuel cell module requirements, enabling our expansion into a new and promising market,” TM4 COO Robert Baril said in today’s announcement.

“We look forward to this collaboration that will certainly strengthen the relationship between our companies.”
