Company profile:
TROPICAL S.A. is a research & development company based in Athens, Greece. Its main interests are focused on hydrogen technologies and especially on fuel cells, electrolysers and hydrogen storage. Being pioneers on that energy related field, we are participating in many R&D programs in cooperation with universities and research institutes.
Tropical has already offered a big number of “Green “ products to many research and demonstration projects all over the world, due to its participation on several Worldwide, European & National Research & Development projects regarding hydrogen technologies and renewable energy sources, always in close cooperation with Universities and Institutes worldwide. Keep on your records that on the last 15 years Tropical have cooperated with at least 28 Universities, 18 research institutes and 27 research companies from all over the world for the development of the future “GREEN” products. Tropical is one of the oldest hydrogen & fuel cell companies in Europe and have already managed to design and put into production several products, which all of them have some common advantages such as being quite in operation, compact in size & light weight, produce zero-emissions, minimal maintenance, reliable & stable.

Range of products
1. Fuel Cell power generators ranging from 1kW to 20kW (Hydrogen, Natural Gas, LPG, Biogas, Ethanol, Methanol).
2. Hydrogen fuel processors (Reformers).
2. Water electrolysers for hydrogen production & Hydrogen refueling stations.
3. Metal hydride tanks for hydrogen storage (for low pressure hydrogen storage).
4. Energy from RES and storage in Li-batteries or Ultra capacitors or other storage applications.
5. Titanium gaskets for 100% Sealing due to its 35.000 micro cups which do not allow gas and liquid leakage.
6. Electric or hydrogen fuel cell minibuses, cars, trucks, scooters, bicycles, boats, motor yachts, etc.
7. Development of Controllers, inverters, converters & power electronic systems.
8. Development of Li-batteries & Ultra capacitors.

Main applications
- Emergency power systems instead of diesel generators (the best choice in order to secure long backup times).
- Uninterruptable Power System (UPS), back-up power system & Telecommunications (telecom back-up power).
- Emergency power/charger, providing electricity to our homes & Remote Areas (remote off-grid power), shops, buildings, hospitals etc.
- Substitution of solar panels in an climatic unfavorable location (wood, mountains, caves, mines etc).
- Demonstration projects, Universities, Research Institutes, Colleges, Schools, etc .
- Military applications, Robotics, Automation, Modeling, Surveillance & Sensing, Seismographs & Meteo Stations, Oil & Gas.
- Outdoor events, Mobile Traffic Signals, Security, Modeling, Motor Yachts & Boats, Buses, CityCars , Scooters, Caravans, etc
