ABB is set to use hydrogen fuel cell technology to power its high-power e-mobility charging stations, having today (Nov 16) placed a £4m ($5.3m) order with UK-based AFC Energy for its “S” Series system.
Scheduled for delivery in early 2023, the first 200kW “S” Series system, which can be fuelled with either hydrogen or ammonia, will be housed in a container to provide ABB customers with zero-emissions charging infrastructure.
To deliver the green charging option, AFC Energy’s alkaline fuel cell technology works by the electrochemical combination of hydrogen and oxygen in a non-combustion process, essentially converting chemical energy into electrical energy.
“The HydroX-Cell(S)™ offers a currently density repeatedly demonstrated to achieve levels equal to or greater than alternative high-power density cells in the market today,” Adam Bond, CEO of AFC Energy told H2 View.
