GenCell Energy solution to power advanced test unit in Iceland

GenCell Energy’s A5 off-grid power solution, which extracts hydrogen from liquid ammonia, will be deployed on an advanced test unit to power the Emergency Communication System (ECS) station in Reykjavik, Iceland, operated by Neyðarlínan ohf.

Announcing the agreement this week (12th Jan), the Israel-based company said the unit that is based on alkaline fuel cell technology is expected to reach February next month, where it will provide 24/7 primary power.

Deployment of the A5 solution supports the environmental policy of the Icelandic Government, which passed an action plan in 2018 calling to abolish the use of all fossil fuels before the year 2050 and banning all new registrations of diesel and petrol vehicles from the year 2030.
