Edotco Group, an end-to-end integrated telecommunications infrastructure services company and Zass Energy Services (ZES) on Wednesday announced the deployment of the first ever Methanol based Fuel Cell(s) in Bangladesh.

The liquid methanol fuel cell uses greener fuel and operates more efficiently, reducing both noise and environmental pollution. This solution also serves as a viable alternative for diesel generators ensuring reliable power at sites, said a press release. 

Zass Telecom (Ltd.) (ZES) is the first company in Bangladesh to make the Methanol Fuel Cell based power systems commercially available, these systems are deployed in partnership with edotco Bangladesh sites for a 6 month trial.

Diesel generators cause pollution in the form of carbon emissions and noise. Edotco is committed to ensure less carbon emission through its continuous innovation and digitalization. This commitment leads us to deploy upgraded solutions that offer environmental safety and customer satisfaction at the same time by ensuring best service quality.
