June 4, 2003 [SolarAccess.com] Plug Power Inc. introduced the GenCore 5T, the company’s new 5-kW fuel cell system, designed to provide extended run back-up power specifically for the telecommunications industry in the demanding outside plant (OSP) market. GenCore 5T is Plug Power’s first direct hydrogen product based on a proprietary, modular, scaleable, architected GenCore fuel cell platform. Future products from this platform, ranging from 2-12 kW, will be marketed to the cable broadband and uninterruptible power supply (UPS) industries. Shipment of the new unit is expected to begin during the fourth quarter of 2003 under a controlled introduction strategy driven by customer demand and the establishment of a distribution and support infrastructure. Plug Power currently has a 10-unit order backlog for the GenCore 5T product.
