PowerCell Sweden AB has been granted SEK 5 million ($603,000) by the Swedish Energy Agency to develop a modular fuel cell system for stationary applications. The project aims to develop and demonstrate stationary fuel cell CHP systems based on modules of 20 kW with PowerCell’s new fuel cell stack, its S2.

Stationary fuel cell systems in the range of 20-120 kW can be developed for applications in several segments and markets, including larger standby generators and electricity generation from excess hydrogen in the process industry, the company says.

Magnus Henell, CEO of PowerCell, said: ‘We see a great potential for this modular fuel cell system as the interest in this solution is great in a number of segments and markets worldwide’.
