Swedish companies receive orders from fuel cell mobility sector
Buses for the city and regional transport are the early adopters of FCEV technology and has an advantage over diesel buses due to the emission.
myFC, a Swedish micro fuel cell company, has received an order of around SEK 2 million (US$ 0.24 million) for hydrogen fuel cell systems for the e-mobility sector from Lightec Inc. in Tokyo, Japan.
The order was followed by a feasibility study that evaluated the integration of myFC’s micro fuel cell technology and a hydrogen tank into the undisclosed manufacturer’s system. The development, production and integration of prototypes are now set to start.
Michael Glantz, CEO of myFC, said, “Our technology is ideal for e-mobility as it is specifically developed to provide freedom-in-design, modularity, flexibility and high energy density. The actors in this fast-growing segment are also increasingly attracted to the benefits hydrogen offers.”
In a separate development, Concentric AB, a Swedish pump manufacturer, will supply electric coolant pumps to a global truck and bus OEM to be used for cooling the FCEVs on their new flagship bus application.
Cooling FCEVs requires the use of special coolants, which are aggressive to many metals. Concentric’s e-pump can pump these special fluids without reducing the durability of the product or service life.
David Woolley, President and CEO of Concentric AB, said, “This new agreement is another milestone in the development of Concentric’s e-pumps, as we strive for Technology + Innovation = Sustainability.”
