UQM presently manufactures the motors and controllers and assemble the Fuel Cell Stack for Ballard Power Systems to be used in Fuel Cell Transit Busses.

The assembly of the fuel cell compressor module with the motor and controller manufactured by UQM, is for Ballard Power Systems a global leader in PEM (proton exchange membrane) fuel cell technology. These compressor modules are an integral component of hydrogen powered fuel cell vehicles. The UQM expansion into this fuel cell business allows for growth into a new market, with Ballard and additional customers.

The UQM R410 fuel cell compressor system is designed for medium duty automotive and commercial bus applications for up to 150kW fuel cell stacks.


UQM Generator in the RTD Transit bus with over 4 Million Miles and 10 years on the road.

UQM and the Denver Regional Transportation District (RTD) are many years into a refurbishment program on the generators and motor controllers used in the agency’s fleet of hybrid buses. The original units being refurbished far exceeded their expected life and this program will allow additional running time for the fleet of buses, which operate seven days a week in downtown Denver.

These 30 hybrid buses have covered more than 4 million miles in daily service since 2004. The buses use UQM PowerPhase® electric generators and controllers as part of the hybrid powertrain.
