PowerCell to supply fuel cell system of a megawatt scale to a European aviation start-up
PowerCell Sweden AB has received an order from a European aviation start-up company worth a total of approximately MSEK 47 (approximately € 4.5) through 2023.
The order includes delivering fuel cell systems with a total capacity of several megawatts as well as engineering services and laboratory testing. Roughly 75% of the order value is expected to impact 2022.
The European start-up company intends to accelerate the development of emissions-free flight by developing a hydrogen-electric powertrain for various aeronautical applications.
Through this order, the company is securing access to a fuel cell capacity of several megawatts during the period in question.
Richard Berkling, CEO of PowerCell Sweden AB, said, “Hydrogen-electric fuel cell solutions are undergoing comprehensive tests in the aviation sector, and in the last few years PowerCell has placed itself as one of the leading suppliers within the segment.”
This segment has extremely stringent requirements for reliability and performance in relation to weight and volume and will play an important role in developing the fuel cell technology of tomorrow. What we can learn here will be of great use in the future – for us as well as for our customers.
PowerCell Sweden AB (publ) develops and produces fuel cell stacks and systems for stationary and mobile applications with a world-class energy density.
