Rolls-Royce and Lab1886, a lab within the Mercedes-Benz group, have joined forces to examine the use of vehicle fuel cells for stationary power generation.
A pilot project, which will begin next year, has been agreed between the Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, which develops solutions under the MTU brand name, and Lab1886.
Over the coming months, Rolls-Royce will develop an integrated MTU solution for sustainable off-gird generation of continuous and emergency power using vehicle fuel cells, focused on safety-critical applications such as data centres.
The pilot project will also include the construction of an emergency power plant for Rolls-Royce’s data centre in Friedrichshafen. The plant will be based of fuel cell modules built by Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell GmbH.
