PowerCell Sweden receives 1st order for 100 kW PowerCell S3 prototype fuel cell stack for automotive application
Fuel cell company PowerCell Sweden AB has received a first order for a prototype of a 100 kW PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack from a European company that will use it in an automotive application.
PowerCell expects to deliver the S3 prototype during the second quarter of this year. PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack is based on the platform developed by the PowerCell in the EU-funded Autostack Core project together with its project partners.
The PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack platform will complement the first and second fuel cell stack platforms; the PowerCell S1 (1‑5 kW) and PowerCell S2 (6‑25 kW) as it covers a larger power range from 20 kW up to 100 kW, except that this platform is designed to use only hydrogen as the fuel. (The earlier PowerCell systems include a reformer module to extract hydrogen from diesel.)
