Air Products has announced it has become a key strategic partner to AFC Energy, within its Power Up programme.
The project is funded under the Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Joint Undertaking (FCHJU) that aims to demonstrate large-scale power generation through a fuel cell.
Air Products will be supplying the hydrogen to the €6.1m EU-backed Power Up project, led by AFC Energy that will see the installation of one of the world’s largest alkaline fuel cell power systems.
The installation will be sited in Stade, northern Germany, where Air Products already operates a world-class, major industrial hydrogen production plant, adjoining major chemicals complex operated by Dow Chemicals.
Two fuel cell systems will initially be introduced, in stages, with an expected 500kW total electrical output. The system is due to become operational in the second half of 2014, subject to local permitting.
Diana Raine, European Business Manager Hydrogen Energy, Air Products, comments, “Air Products is delighted to become a key strategic partner in such an exciting project which will demonstrate technical and economical feasibility of power generation from a hydrogen fuel cell at significant scale.”
