The UK-based firm today (March 14) confirmed its effort through a new agreement with AFC Energy that will see the deployment of a hydrogen fuel cell power generator at a construction site, mostly likely based in London.

News of the zero-emissions technology deployment comes after five months of collaboration between the firms, through which they explored the potential deployment of hydrogen, ammonia and methanol technologies.

Kiro Tamer, Head of Environmental Sustainability at Keltbray, said, “We’re pleased to be announcing our collaboration with AFC Energy, this is an important step forward in our journey towards a Net Zero future.

“Keltbray strives to make a positive contribution to the planet and this partnership allows us to further accelerate the sector’s transition to a more sustainable world. Collaboration is key in achieving real change and the whole sector must work together to ensure we transform how we deliver the built environment.

“The use of this innovative technology allows us to play a key role in assisting the industry in reducing its reliance on fossil fuels.”

In addition to the deployment of the hydrogen fuel cell generator, the duo have said they will also develop a roadmap for further deployments and work with a local plant hire business to encourage the transition away from diesel.

Adam Bond, CEO at AFC Energy, added, “AFC Energy is excited to be announcing our collaboration with Keltbray today, highlighting how industry is increasingly playing its role in delivering on society’s Net Zero aspiration here in the UK.

“As an innovative and socially responsible UK contractor, Keltbray continues to show great leadership in highlighting, through adoption of hydrogen fuel cell power generator technology, how the construction industry is seeing the benefit of displacing highly pollutant fossil fuels in favour of cutting-edge clean energy solutions.

“We are most pleased to be supporting Keltbray, its clients and the sector’s transition towards a more sustainable future.”
