MyFC will participate in an innovation project with RISE (Research Institute of Sweden) and others in early 2022.
The project will be executed together with Clean Motion, Bevi and Micropower to develop powertrains for softmobility vehicles such as taxi pods and other similar applications.
The project’s objective is to develop various electric drivelines with a minimal need for charging infrastructure.
The project participants will develop a fuel cell-powered driveline that is optimised for smaller vehicles as well as an electrified driveline, a solar cell body for testing energy autonomy with connection to battery storage and a tailor-made electric motor without permanent magnets.
The project is funded by the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten). The project will start in 2022 and lasts until the end of 2023.
Separately, Nel Hydrogen Fueling (a subsidiary of Nel ASA) has received a purchase order from a fuel supplier for multiple H2Station hydrogen fuelling stations for a site in the US. The H2Station units will be produced and installed during 2022 and 2023. The purchase order has a value of over $6 million. The fuelling station consisting of multiple station modules will be located in the US and will expand the fuelling coverage for hydrogen powered fuel cell electric light and heavy-duty vehicles.
Nel has also received a purchase order for an alkaline electrolyser system from an undisclosed, new, European customer. The purchase order has a contract value of around €3 million and the equipment is expected to be delivered in 2022, with the first hydrogen production in 2023. The electrolyser will produce hydrogen that will be mixed with natural gas for combustion in a rotary kiln.
