Ballard Power Systems has signed a product development agreement with Hydrogene de France (HDF Energy) for the development and integration of a multi-megawatt scale fuel cell system at HDF Energy’s Renewstable ® power plant.
As a multi-megawatt baseload system, HDF Energy’s Renewstable ® power plant enables large-scale storage of intermittent renewable wind or solar energy in the form of hydrogen as well as electricity generation using that hydrogen feedstock together with a fuel cell system.
“Under the development agreement, we are planning for two phases of work. This first phase involves the design, build and supply of two next-generation megawatt-scale containerised stationary PEM fuel cell systems totalling three-megawatts, based on our new high-durability LCS fuel cell stack,” said Kevin Colbow, Ballard’s Chief Technology Officer.
“Second, after HDF Energy incorporates these systems into their Renewstable® power plant in an initial project, we plan to proceed with a technology transfer programme to eneable HDF Energy to assemble these fuel cell systems for global market sales of their Renewstable® power plants.”
