TECO 2030 has entered into a strategic partnership with Everfuel, Europe’s largest hydrogen provider, to supply green hydrogen to power its fuel cells and fuel cell generators.
This will enable the decarbonization of locations that are notoriously difficult to decarbonize, such as building sites.
The firms will collaborate to develop solutions that will enable Everfuel to distribute and provide green hydrogen to locations where TECO 2030’s hydrogen fuel cell power generators are located, as well as to ships, automobiles, and other equipment equipped with TECO 2030’s fuel cell technology.
TECO 2030 and Everfuel will focus on decentralised power supply for off-grid development projects in places where Everfuel has hydrogen capacity and infrastructure.
Through their collaboration, the two companies will enable construction sites without access to the grid to minimize their carbon impact and emissions by converting from diesel generators to zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell generators.
They will be able to charge their electric diggers and other construction equipment in an emission-free manner as a result of this.
Diesel generators contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and pollution and are frequently used to generate electricity when no connection to the power grid is available, as is the case on building sites in areas with limited grid capacity.
TECO 2030’s collaboration with Everfuel will also enable other projects that utilize electricity-dependent equipment and machinery and are located in areas with insufficient grid capacity to achieve net zero emissions.
“We are very excited about our new cooperation with Everfuel because it means that we will soon be able to offer our customers easy access to green hydrogen to fuel our fuel cells in areas that are difficult to decarbonise,” says Tore Enger, CEO of TECO 2030 ASA.
“Due to our new cooperation with Everfuel, many construction sites and other projects and activities that use diesel generators will now be able to reduce their climate footprint by switching to emissions-free fuel cell generators,” Enger says.
“We are very excited to develop distribution and delivery solutions for users of the robust and high-capacity fuel cells delivered by TECO 2030. We believe it will open a huge market for hydrogen and introduce zero-emission solutions in hard-to-decarbonise segments,” says Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO of Everfuel AS.
TECO 2030 is developing hydrogen fuel cells for use in ships and other heavy-duty applications. Hydrogen fuel cells are the engines of the future since they convert hydrogen to power with no emissions other than water vapour and warm air.
Additionally, TECO 2030 is creating fuel cell generators that can be used in place of diesel generators. The fuel cell generators will operate similarly to a generator fueled by diesel or other fossil fuels, but will run on hydrogen rather than gasoline, resulting in zero emissions.
