Ceres’ solid oxide electrolyser is producing hydrogen at partner AVL’s site in Germany and in the final stages of commissioning.
In a statement, Ceres said it is on track to reach factory acceptance testing in the coming weeks. The demonstrator will be shipped to Shell’s R&D Centre in Bangalore to substantiate the electrolyser’s performance, cost and operational functionality.
Ceres is actively engaged across the hydrogen value chain to activate the market for highly efficient solid oxide technology in hard-to-abate, high temperature industrial processes, such as the production of green steel, ammonia and synthetic fuels, with the potential to reduce the overall capital and operational project costs by 25%. Ceres is also partnering with Bosch and Linde.
In parallel, the release of Ceres’ new stack technology earlier this year has delivered improvements in performance and cost, which will now feed through into feasibility studies underway with partners. These studies focus on designing the optimum architecture for 100MW+ scale system installations, essential to accelerate commercialisation and to deliver green hydrogen at the scale and pace required to reach Net Zero.
