PowerCell receives order for feasibility studies for off-road segment from Inabata
Swedish hydrogen fuel cell technology developers PowerCell Sweden AB has announced that it has received an order for two feasibility studies within the off-road segment from the company’s Japanese distributor Inabata & Co., Ltd. The aim of the studies is to provide the specifications for fuel cell-based solutions for two Japanese off-road mobility manufacturers.
According to a statement, PowerCell Sweden has received the order for the two feasibility studies from its Japanese distributor, the merchant house Inabata & Co., Ltd. The aim of the two studies is to develop the preliminary specifications for fuel cell-based solutions for the off-road segment.
The off-road segment comprises various types of industrial vehicles such as material handling, construction, and agriculture equipment as well as terminal and container tractors.
The fuel cell-based solutions will be configurated into module-based systems with a power output ranging from 30 kW up to 1 MW and above. Deliveries of the studies are expected to take place during the last quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021. The total order value is insignificant.
Japan has a central role in the off-road segment and is home to several leading manufacturers. The order is an important breakthrough that confirms both our global position and our possibilities in the Japanese market. PowerCell’s fuel cell systems combine high power output with great dynamics and short response time in a compact format. This combination offers really attractive zero-emissions solutions for demanding customers in the off-road segment, said Andreas Bodén, Director of Sales & Marketing at PowerCell Sweden AB.
