PowerCell Sweden to supply an MS-100 fuel cell system to the University of Texas
Swedish hydrogen fuel cell technology developers PowerCell Sweden AB has received an order for an MS-100 fuel cell system from the University of Texas, in the United States (US). The system will be part of a fuel cell-based solution for stationary power developed jointly with Hitachi ABB Power Grids. The system will be delivered by mid-2021.
The fuel cell-based solution, the value of which has not been disclosed, will be used at the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC), the University of Texas to demonstrate how renewable hydrogen can be used to decarbonize energy consumption. The solution will be based on a PowerCell MS-100 fuel cell system from PowerCell Sweden.
The aim of the cooperation is to leverage the two businesses’ existing technologies to jointly develop advanced and customer adapted fuel cell-based solutions for stationary power generation. It is a positive first step in our cooperation to develop such a solution for a leading American university, said Andreas Bodén, Director of Sales and Marketing of PowerCell Sweden.
The stationary power solution for TACC is the first concrete project, following the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) regarding stationary fuel cell power solutions, that PowerCell Sweden and Hitachi ABB Power Grids signed in June 2020.
At Hitachi ABB Power Grids we are committed to accelerating the energy transition towards a carbon-neutral future. Fuel cell technology will be a common feature of the new energy landscape and infrastructure. The University of Texas order indicates how fuel cell-based stationary power solutions are helping to power the next generation of learning, said Thomas Einarsson, Marketing Manager for Hitachi ABB Power Grids business in Sweden.
