SFC Energy AG (F3C: DE), Test-Fuchs GmbH from Austria, and Auto AG Group from Switzerland have signed development cooperation. Together, the partners are developing a mobile and emission-free hydrogen generator. The companies will present the prototype of the H₂Genset within the first half of 2022.
In the development partnership, the three companies combine their respective expertise. While SFC Energy contributes its expertise as a hydrogen and methanol fuel cells manufacturer, Test-Fuchs has years of know-how in hydrogen refueling and valve technology from the aerospace industry. The Auto AG Group is an innovative full-service provider in the commercial vehicle sector with extensive experience in the maintenance of fuel cell vehicles.
With the H₂Genset, the partners primarily want to address users dependent on diesel generators for their previous energy supply and who attach importance to a robust device design. These 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 a reliable energy source for blue light and defense organizations.
With a targeted power range of 5 to 100 kilowatts (kW), users can configure the H₂Genset to fit their exact requirements. The user-friendly hydrogen fuel cell technology reduces maintenance and fuel consumption to a minimum. At the same time, compared to conventional diesel generators, the H₂Genset emits no environmentally harmful exhaust gases such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), or fine dust.
