Short description: 
For more than 20 years, Proton Motor has been Germany`s expert in climate-neutral energy generation with clean-tech innovations and in this field, it has specialised in emission-free hydrogen fuel cells developed and manufactured in-house. The corporate focus is on stationary applications such as emergency power for critical infrastructures and mobile solutions such as back-to-base applications. In addition, the customised or standard hybrid systems are used in the automotive, maritime and rail sectors. The new automated series production plant was put into operation in September 2019. (
In addition to CO2-neutral fuel cell solutions, Proton Motor also offers battery-powered uninterruptible power supply (UPS) via its “SPower” product line. The company, which currently employs almost 100 people under the CEO management of Dr. Faiz Nahab, is a wholly owned operating subsidiary of ‘Proton Motor Power Systems plc’, based in Newcastle upon Tyne, England. Since October 2006, the parent company’s ‘green energy’ share has been listed on the London Stock Exchange with simultaneous trading in Frankfurt/Main. (


Role in the project: 
Our focus in the production of hydrogen fuel cell technologies is on sustainable production to contribute to a better and greener future. We are constantly doing our best to reduce pollution by recycling, reusing and extending the life of our products and materials. As a member of the consortium, Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH will supply a total of 14 fuel cell systems to equip refuse collection vehicles. These refuse collection vehicles are powered 100 % electric, making them quiet and emitting no greenhouse gases or particulate matter. To extend the range, the vehicles are equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell system that converts hydrogen into electricity and has clean water as a waste product.
