Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation (Toshiba ESS) has started to relocate a hydrogen energy production site from Yokohama to Hamakawasaki operations in the Ukishimaarea, Kawasaki City, Japan.
Due for completion later this year, the new facility will produce Toshiba ESS’s Hydrogen energy products such as the fuel cell stack, which is an integrated core technology, H2One™, a carbon dioxide free hydrogen-based autonomous energy supply system, and H2Rex™, a hydrogen fuel cell power generation system.
The new facility uses Toshiba Group’s advanced production technology, and the production line will be streamlined to reduce the production cost. The facility can also scale up capability to approximately ten times the current production capacity based on product demand.
Yoshihisa Sanagi, General Manager of the Hydrogen Energy Business Division at Toshiba ESS, said, “With the development and deployment of hydrogen energy technology, Toshiba ESS will further contribute to the growth and maturation of renewable energy all around the world.”
Toshiba ESS has already delivered over 120 units of pure hydrogen fuel cell system, H2Rex™, for wholesale markets, hotels, convenience stores, and sports facilities. The company reached a partnership agreement for the development of fuel cell systems with a start-up in China, More Hydrogen Energy Technology Co., Ltd., last October.
