TM4 to supply electric motors to Ballard Power Systems

LinkedIn +

Ballard Power Systems has selected TM4 Inc. to supply electric motors and inverters as part of its FCvelocity-HD7 module for fuel cell vehicles. The motors and inverters will be coupled with newly developed compressor units.

The TM4 MOTIVETM series of high RPM motors was selected by Ballard for its proven reliability and high power density. The air supply of a fuel cell is a very critical system. A robust, compact and efficient motor is essential to the design of a fuel cell.

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. 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.
