SFC Energy AG, Austria’s Test-Fuchs GmbH and Switzerland’s Auto AG Group have signed development cooperation to develop a mobile and emission-free hydrogen generator.
With the H2Genset, the partners primarily want to address users dependent on diesel generators for their previous energy supply and attach importance to a robust device design. The companies will present the prototype of the H2Genset within the first half of 2022.
The H2Genset – consisting of a hydrogen tank and an EFOY Hydrogen fuel cell – can be brought to any location as a mobile trailer solution in a flexible and time-saving way and is thus also a reliable energy source for blue light and defence organisations.
With a targeted power range of 5 to 100 kW, users can configure the H2Genset to fit their exact requirements. The user-friendly hydrogen fuel cell technology reduces maintenance and fuel consumption to a minimum.
SFC Energy contributes its expertise as one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hydrogen and methanol fuel cells. Whereas, Test-Fuchs has years of know-how in hydrogen refuelling and valve technology from the aerospace industry. On the other hand, Auto AG Group is a full-service provider in the commercial vehicle sector with extensive experience in maintaining fuel cell vehicles.
Dr Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG, said, “The H2Genset is the logical and consistent continuation of our approach to replace diesel generators by emission-free hydrogen technology.”
Volker Fuchs, CEO of Test-Fuchs GmbH, added, “We firmly believe that hydrogen is the future and together with our partners we will seize the great market opportunities in the generator sector.”
Marc Ziegler, CEO of Auto AG Group, commented, “In the development of the H2Genset, three companies are pooling their competencies, which have been firmly positioned in the market for years and have proven technologies.”
