Wednesday 4 June 2014 | 10:16 CET | News
The United States Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) said that it has selected Oorja Protonics (Oorja) for feasibility study involving Oorja's Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFC) for powering telecommunication towers in South Africa. USTDA has approved a grant of USD 872,000 to Oorja for this initiative. The project is first of its kind in the South African telecoms market with funding from USTDA, and if successful, it could lead to an expedited adoption of Oorja's fuel cells in the whole region's telecoms market.
