The worlds’ first automated facility dedicated to the production of fuel cell technology

Location, Location, Location – the existing building of Ballard Power Systems is home to the $4.5 million state-of-the-art facility which houses a cleanroom, a liquid injection molding room, fuel cell stack final assembly room, and locker room. The cleanroom was designed to ISO Class 8 equivalent standards and will be commissioned for manufacturing of fuel cell stacks used in Mercedes-Benz cars worldwide.

Bringing depth of expertise in the development of cleanroom facilities, our integrated team of architects and engineers was selected to design the structural, mechanical, and electrical systems. We brought in cleanroom specific cranes to avoid any contamination in the manufacturing operations area. And, three air-showers were designed to comply with sterile requirements at the employee entrances.

Hyper fast tracked with an aggressive construction schedule, the project met all production timelines. Daily coordination between the design team, operational team in Germany, and contractor on-site was key to the project’s success.

Fuel cell technology represents a viable transportation alternative that will provide people with a zero-local emission vehicle. A commitment to innovation has guided the Daimler Benz organization since they first invented the internal combustion engine. Hydrogen fuel cell technology is the future of mobility and Daimler Benz, together with Stantec, are working together to pioneer this evolution.
