EH Group Engineering has moved the centre of its activities to a new state-of-the-art fuel cell laboratory and production facility in Nyon, Switzerland.
Marking a major move for the company, the new space offers nearly 500m2 of curated lab space, with dedicated hydrogen supply, multiple fuel cell testing stations of up to 250kW, rapid prototyping, and production capabilities.
“As we rapidly scale up our activities, it became increasingly important to secure best-in-class facilities into which we could expand,” said Mardit Matian, Founder of EH Group.
“They had never been occupied, and could thus be customised for our specific requirements, particularly with regards to hydrogen supply and testing facilities.
“With room to deploy our fully automated production process, and an ecosystem of leading hi-tech companies nearby, this move will serve to grow the team and accelerate our fuel cell deployment capabilities.”
EH Group has earmarked a further 4000m2 of dedicated production space onsite for further expansion in 2022.
EH Group: Redesigning fuel cell technology
Established on the shores of Lake Geneva, Switzerland in 2017, EH Group had a vision to challenge the two main commercial hurdles inherent to fuel cell technology: cost and complexity. The company’s founder, Dr. Mardit Matian, had been deeply focused on these issues over his 20-year career in fuel cells but felt that despite gradual improvements in the underlying technology, a radical new approach was required.
Four years of intense R&D later, and with a highly experienced engineering team established, EH Group’s innovative fuel cell product emerged. The result:
- Patented fuel cell stack technology, based on a wholly redesigned microstructure, which delivers market leading power density;
- A transformative assembly and production process which enables a rapid scale-up and aims to significantly reduce the price of stacks;
- A simplified fuel cell system architecture, with lower parasitic loads, thereby cheaper and more efficient.
