PowerCell Sweden receives order for stack tests from German automaker
Swedish fuel cell technology developer PowerCell Sweden AB has announced that it has received an order for tests of fuel cell stacks from a leading German car manufacturer. The order is worth SEK 2 million (≈ EUR 191 000) and the stack tests will be carried out during the second quarter of 2019.
According to a statement, the tests will be performed in the new fuel cell laboratory that the company inaugurated last autumn. The new laboratory is one of the world’s most powerful fuel cell laboratories and comprises two test beds, each with a testing capacity for fuel cells and fuel cell systems of up to 150 kW, providing PowerCell Sweden with an additional total testing capacity of 300 kW.
The new laboratory facility also enables PowerCell to run “more realistic test cycles” and consequently provides a more accurate basis for evaluation.
We have a well-invested facility that is one of the most sophisticated of its kind in the world. We also have highly skilled personnel with unparalleled experience in fuel cell technology so it’s no coincidence that a leading German car manufacturer turns to us for this type of testing, said Per Wassén, CEO of PowerCell Sweden.
