Atwood to Develop Fuel-Cell Power System

March 2, 2001
Filed under Trailer News

Atwood Mobile Products Inc., based in Rockford, Illinois, has entered into an alliance to
develop fuel cells to power water heaters, furnaces, electrical appliances and several
motorized devices used in RVs. Fuel cells convert hydrogen and oxygen into electricity and
water using an electrochemical process. “We see fuel cells as the future for clean, quiet
sources of electrical power for many devices in recreational vehicles,” said Bob Pickering,
president of Atwood, a unit of Dura Automotive Systems Inc. “We will overcome the
challenges of weight, space and cost to deliver a truly convenient and valuable source of
electricity. We will draw upon our experience developing small, compact appliances
specifically designed for the RV lifestyle.”
