Nedstack and thyssenkrupp Automation Engineering have inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on supplying a semi-automated Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell Production System.
This innovative partnership, solidified in Aachen, Germany, during the EPT “Electromobile Production Days” conference, marks a significant step toward reshaping the landscape of fuel cell manufacturing.
The joint venture, conceived in 2020 through concurrent engineering projects, is set to redefine fuel cell production. At the core of this collaboration is the development of a semi-automated PEM Fuel Cell Production System. This system will be a game-changer in the industry, promising not only cost savings but also a significant leap in production quality and efficiency. The innovative system will find its home in the Nedstack Fuel Cell Giga Factory in Arnhem, the Netherlands, a crucial component of the flagship IPCEI-Hy2Tech project.
Fuel cell manufacturing, while promising for a sustainable energy future, faces challenges related to costs, quality assurance, and scalability. The Nedstack-thyssenkrupp collaboration seeks to address these challenges head-on by leveraging automation technologies tailored for the fuel cell industry.
Nedstack and thyssenkrupp are optimistic about the transformative impact of their collaboration. By aligning their strengths in fuel cell technology and automation engineering, the companies aspire to catalyze innovation, setting new benchmarks in the clean energy industry. This partnership is expected to play a pivotal role in advancing the adoption of clean energy solutions and facilitating the global transition to a more sustainable future.
