NedStack Australia is set to receive A$825,000 ($604,749) from the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMGC) to further develop proton-exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell technology in Australia to support the expanding hydrogen industry.
NedStack Australia is a joint venture between LAVO Hydrogen Storage Technology and Nedstack of the Netherlands.
The joint venture will utilise the AMGC grant to locally develop utility scale PEM fuel cell products in Australia with the hopes that it could lead to future large-scale manufacturing.
The prototype will be developed at the A$20M ($14.6m) Springfield facility, expanding on the planned manufacturing of hydrogen fuel cells for LAVO’s 40kWh storage unit
LAVO’s green hydrogen-powered devices are currently utilising NedStack fuel cells from the Netherlands in its hydrogen energy storage system.
Expanding PEM fuel cell product development and manufacturing in Australian will enhance the domestic capability to meet the growing demand for fuel cells in hydrogen-fed power supply units across the renewable energy, telecom, mining and transportation industries.
Local manufacture of hydrogen fuel cells will improve the hydrogen eco-system supply chain and provide a long-term sustainable solution to supply domestic industry and help Australian key industries meet their net-zero targets.
