The Forza hydrogen power system is a baseload system that converts excess hydrogen disbursed from chemical processing plants into DC electricity, says the company. The electricity can then be used in the same facility, in a Nuvera-patented closed-loop fashion, to lower energy costs. The modular system has multi-megawatt capabilities and produces pollution-free electricity in parallel to the existing electric DC circuit.
