Swedish hydrogen fuel cell technology developer PowerCell Sweden AB (PowerCell) has announced that it has received an order from an unnamed European aviation start-up for fuel cell systems.
According to a statement, the order includes delivering fuel cell systems with a total capacity of several megawatts as well as engineering services and laboratory testing.
The order includes delivering fuel cell systems with a total capacity of several megawatts as well as engineering services and laboratory testing.
Worth a total of approximately SEK 47 million (≈ EUR 4.5 million) through 2023, roughly 75 percent of the total order value is expected to impact 2022.
Through this order the company is securing access to a fuel cell capacity of several megawatts during the period in question, said Richard Berkling, CEO of PowerCell.
The European start-up company intends to accelerate the development of emissions-free flight by developing a hydrogen-electric powertrain for various aeronautical applications.
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, Richard Berkling said
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, ended Richard Berkling.
