Cummins is working to automate the manufacturing process of solid oxide electrolyser cells (SOECs) and stack assembly to better serve the accelerating hydrogen economy and enable over 100MW of electrolyser production capacity.
A three-year long project, the automation process hopes to result in more efficient electrolysers whilst reducing capital costs, the company confirmed on Monday (Sep 27).
The US Department of Energy’s (DOE) Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office has already thrown support behind the project with a $5m boost to reduce the cost of and accelerate breakthroughs in the hydrogen sector.
On the project, Amy Davis, Vice-President and President of New Power at Cummins, said, “We believe green hydrogen will be critical to a decarbonised future, particularly for hard-to-abate sectors.
