The order covers two TECO 2030 FCM400 fuel cell modules for a total power output of 800 kW with all additional power and automation equipment to be installed in a 20 ft. ISO container that will provide zero emission energy at construction sites.

Implenia has an option to include two more fuel cell modules (FCM400) in the HydroPilot container, which can increase the power capacity to 1600 kW installed in the same HydroPilot container, and would raise the contract value to NOK30m.

The fuel cells are scheduled to be delivered during Q3 2023. Each module is designed with a 400kW net power output capacity and designed for a scalable and modular approach.

Today’s order builds on the previously announced cooperation between TECO 2030 and Implenia and the following announcement grant by the Norwegian state enterprise ENOVA to develop and pilot hydrogen-powered solutions to eliminate emissions at construction sites.

Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030, said diesel generators are currently the main power source at infrastructure construction sites and a substantial source of climate gas emissions, and the order sends “a strong signal” that there is now a viable emission-free alternative for heavy-duty applications.

Audun Aaland, CEO of Implenia Norge, said Implenia recognises and supports the Norwegian government’s plan to make transport sector’s construction sites fossil-free. “We believe hydrogen fuel cells will play a major part in achieving this ambition,” he said.
