First Fuel Cell Powered Multirotor to Operate in a Real-World Environment - EnergyOr H2Quad 400
2015-10-27 – EnergyOr Technologies recently demonstrated the H2Quad 400 which is the first fuel cell powered Quadrotor in the world to operate outdoors in a real-world environment. Further optimization will be performed in the coming weeks with the end objective being the demonstration of a long endurance flight, complete with HD video camera, for 2 hours or more.

About EnergyOr

EnergyOr Technologies Inc. (2002) is a Montreal-based Canadian company that develops lightweight and compact PEM fuel cell systems for high value-added premium niche markets. Its proprietary technology is well suited for aerospace, portable and mobile power applications, or any other application where weight is a critical requirement, including automotive. EnergyOr develops fuel cell systems that are tailored to suit its customer's specific needs, collaborating from early in the design process, through to system integration and product qualification.

EnergyOr was the first and only company to fly a fuel cell powered UAV in Canada (May 2007), and in December 2007, performed the first ever fuel cell flights in Israel. In March 2009, EnergyOr integrated a fuel cell system into the Bird Eye 650 developed by Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) and demonstrated what is believed to be the longest endurance flight of this aircraft to date.

EnergyOr has achieved a flight of more than 10 hours with its fuel cell powered operational UAV, the FAUCON H2. The aircraft, complete with integrated avionics, executed a predetermined flight plan for 10 hours and 4 minutes, then landed autonomously just after sunset on Friday, August 12th, 2011 in Drummondville, Quebec, Canada. In February of 2013, EnergyOr also performed the first ever fuel cell powered UAV endurance flights in India.

EnergyOr offers fuel cell products including the EPOD line of UAV fuel cell systems, the EPAC line of portable auxiliary power units (APUs), the EDAQ fuel cell data acquisition & diagnostic system, and the HPOD hydrogen filling station. EnergyOr provides total system solutions including custom fuel cell stacks and balance-of-plant, hydrogen delivery systems, and complete system integration services.

    I am wondering if you are putting your drones on the public market.

    Hi, I am currently working on a project developing a UAS for forest fire detection. I am interested in using a fuel cell power system as a primary power source for the UAS. The maximum weight which can be allocated for the power system is 3.5kg. The power system needs to supply 22-25V with an average current of 12A (30A maximum). If you could send me some details about the power system used in the H2Quad 400, or any mature integrated power supply solution for multirotor UAS, that would be great. Regards, Steven
