Bobcat Integrates Stationary Fuel Cells at Manufacturing Plants

May 22, 2024
The fuel cells will allow the company to diversify its energy sources.

Bobcat has integrated 14 stationary, natural gas-powered fuel cells from HyAxiom at two of its North Dakota manufacturing facilities. The units will operate in parallel with the commercial power grid while "carving a pathway to decarbonization by producing clean energy for the facilities’ operations," it says. 

The three fuel cells at the Bismarck facility and the 11 units at the Gwinner location are the first commercial installations of stationary fuel cells in the state. The fuel cells allow Bobcat to diversify its energy sources by supplying a majority of the annual power and heat needs of the Bismarck facility and about half the needs of the Gwinner facility.
