Metacon subsidiary Helbio has manufactured and shipped to Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro the 5 kW system that was announced via a press release on April 29, 2019. 

The system will operate on natural gas for the production of electrical power (5 kW) and heat (7kW) via intermediate production of hydrogen, with a low temperature PEM fuel cell.

The CEO of Helbio, Dr. Xenophon Verykios, expressed his satisfaction stating that “Helbio has had a very fruitful interaction with various Brazilian establishments over the past few years and has supplied a number of power or CHP units operating on bio-ethanol or natural gas.  Since bio-ethanol, a renewable fuel, is abundant in Brazil and since Helbio is the only company worldwide capable to provide such systems, we believe there is ample space for further business in this country”.

The slight delay in delivery was due to the ongoing corona pandemic.
