Nordic leading fuel cell company PowerCell Sweden AB announced, earlier this year, that they had received their first order for a PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack from a European company within the automotive sector. PowerCell has now delivered the first prototype of the 100 kW PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack for a truck application.
The S3 prototype has been delivered to a European transport company for application in a distribution truck. The fuel cell stack is based on the platform developed by PowerCell together with partners in the Autostack Core project.
“This is an important historical event for PowerCell and we are obviously very pleased that we have delivered our first 100 kW fuel cell stack PowerCell S3 prototype to the European customer. The customer’s chose of our stack shows that the PowerCell S3 characteristics are unique and the demand for our clean energy solutions increases, although the order has a limited impact on the current year’s results”, said Per Wassén, CEO of PowerCell Sweden AB.
The PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack platform compliments the other fuel cell stack platforms PowerCell S1 (1-5 kW) and PowerCell S2 (5-25 kW), as it covers a larger power range from 20 kW up to 100 kW, except that this platform is designed to use only pure hydrogen as a fuel.
