WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind., VIMERCATE, Italy and HANOVER, Germany - Officials at an Italian company that develops hybrid fuel cell generators and lithium-ion battery systems have announced they will participate in Hannover Messe, one of the largest industrial fairs in the world, April 13-16 in Hanover, Germany.

Genport SRL will demonstrate several products at Hall 27, booth B 66. CEO Paolo Fracas and Stefano Limonta, senior R&D engineer for hybrid fuel cell systems, will represent the company. The company opened its North American office in the Kurz Purdue Technology Center in Purdue Research Park of West Lafayette in 2012.

Fracas said Genport's battery energy storage systems, small hybrid fuel cells and portable power sources will be demonstrated at the event.

"Visitors can see how the latest energy storage components work, and Stefano and I will explain key features and benefits during demonstrations," he said. "We will provide examples of how to utilize them in grid-connected and off-grid systems, and we will meet with other officials to discuss cooperation with potential partners worldwide."

Fracas said Hannover Messe is one of the most prestigious and best-attended exhibitions for the fuel cell industry.

"Visitors travel from throughout Europe, Russia, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and the Americas," he said. "Attendees include distributors, original equipment manufacturers, engineering procurement construction companies and developers of energy systems for home, hospital, commercial, industrial, agricultural, defense and electromedical sectors."
