PowerCell supplies fuel cell system to Italian shipbuilders Fincantieri

Swedish hydrogen fuel cell technology developers PowerCell Sweden AB (PowerCell) has announced that it has delivered an MS-30 fuel cell system to the Italian shipbuilding company Fincantieri S.p.A. The MS-30 will be used for tests of electrification of drive and power generating systems using fuel cells.

Fincantieri S.p.A is headquartered in Trieste in Italy and is Europe’s largest and the world’s fourth-largest shipbuilder. The company designs and builds merchant vessels, passenger ships, offshore, and naval vessels.

According to a statement, the delivered MS-30 fuel cell system is built around the PowerCell S2 fuel cell stack. The system will be used by Fincantieri to test the fuel cell technology for both propulsion and power generating in marine applications. Fincantieri has previously launched a luxury yacht designed for the use of fuel cells.

PowerCell MS-30 can be used as a range extender (REX) for battery-operated electrical vehicles (EV). By integrating this system with hydrogen tanks and power electronics, the vehicle’s range can be extended, without this leading to emissions.
