AFC Energy has collaborated with Keltbray (construction and engineering contractors) to lease its first fuel cell for deployment to a UK construction site.
With the removal of the UK’s £0.4861 per litre Red Diesel subsidy from April 2022, together with recent increases in the price of diesel fuel, construction and other temporary power users are facing material increases in the cost of using diesel generators relative to the cost of clean alternatives such as fuel cell technologies.
The collaboration will see the lease of Keltbray’s first HFC power generator at a construction site likely to be located in London. They will also work on a roadmap for further system deployments from late 2022. Furthermore, both companies work with local plant hire businesses to transition away from diesel-fuelled temporary power.
Under the collaboration, AFC Energy will supply Hydrogen to Keltbray on commercial terms and supply the HFC system. Keltbray will take the role of operator of the HFC system, with AFC Energy providing requisite training to on-site operators.
This will be AFC Energy’s first HFC system deployment in the UK and is a further example of the strong and immediate customer interest in the latest zero-emission power generator technologies being commercialised by AFC Energy.
