With this partnership, the companies have jointly agreed to present a working prototype of the H2Genset within the first half of 2022.
Pooling together the knowledge and expertise of each of the companies, the hydrogen generator will provide a means for various industries to decarbonise with clean power generation set to become an increasingly large market due to impending net zero targets.
The key markets for the H2genset to be used in are often areas without access to the conventional power grid, such as outdoor festivals or large construction sites.
The H2Genset, consisting of a hydrogen tank and an EFOY Hydrogen fuel cell, can be brought to any location as a mobile trailer solution in a flexible and time-saving way and is thus also a reliable energy source for blue light and defence organisations, the companies said.
Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy AG, said, “The H2Genset is the logical and consistent continuation of our approach to replace diesel generators by emission-free hydrogen technology. It is great that we have found partners in Test-Fuchs and Auto AG who share our vision of a climate-neutral energy supply.
“The development partnership shows in the best way what can be created when you think innovation across industry and technology boundaries.”
Volker Fuchs, CEO of Test-Fuchs GmbH, said, “Aerospace is our passion, innovation is our mission. In this respect, we are delighted to be working with SFC Energy and Auto AG Group to make the H2Genset project a success.
“We firmly believe that hydrogen is the future and together with our partners we will seize the great market opportunities in the generator sector.”
