The installation follows the completion of the HAZOP study, which was announced this August, and the commissioning of the first Beta system in the UK.
Ian Balchin, AFC Energy’s executive deputy chairman, said that the company will now be able to begin demonstrating electricity generation in the field from industrially produced hydrogen.
‘We are grateful for the support and expertise we have received from AkzoNobel, and look forward to continuing our close working relationship with them to advance system performance. Electricity produced from the beta systems will be used by AkzoNobel in its own operations offering the prospect of reduced energy costs and lower carbon emissions by avoiding carbon- based fuels.’
AFC Energy is a developer of alkaline fuel cells, focused on large scale industrial applications and the objective of producing the lowest possible unit cost electricity.
