Developing The Most Powerful Marine Fuel Cells


PowerCell is now a member of H2Marine, an EU project spanning 42 months aimed at developing innovative hydrogen solutions with a focus on the development and testing of fuel cells specifically for marine applications. The project entails a comprehensive process of design, development, testing, and distribution of PEM fuel cell stacks that generate 250-300 kW of electricity, according to an article published on its website.

About the project

The project officially commenced in January 2024, with the consortium’s 13 members comprising companies and research institutes coordinated by CERTH (The Centre for Research & Technology-Hellas). The total funding amounting to 7.5 million euros is provided by the European Commission under the Horizon Europe framework within the Clean Hydrogen Partnership, co-financed by the European Union (EU) and the Swiss State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI).

The goal is to further develop fuel cell technology optimized for the harsh climate of marine installations. PowerCell, with experience in multiple deliveries of products within the maritime sector and already an established player in the segment, will contribute its technical expertise and state-of-the-art fuel cell technology.

Improved fuel cell characteristics create synergies across all industries. The project aims to create new market opportunities and contribute to the future sustainability of the marine sector. PowerCell expects to be able to apply the knowledge to other customer segments through products with even greater durability and reliability.
