PowerCell Sweden and Hitachi ABB Power Grids are about to deepen collaboration within stationary power solutions. As a matter of fact, an agreement was signed between the two Groups. Indeed, we had been talking about some quite interesting projects and orders regarding PowerCell Sweden.
The aim of the above-mentioned agreement is «to combine the two companies’ technology and to market fuel cell-based total solution offers that facilitates the transition to a more sustainable energy production», according to the official statement.
PowerCell and Hitachi ABB started to cooperate last year
Back in June 2020, the two companies signed a memorandum of understanding regarding a collaboration around fuel cell-based stationary power solutions. The background is the increased demand for hydrogen-electric stationary power solutions that can complement renewable and volatile energy sources.
Now, the two companies will initially focus on complete, mobile container-based solutions with a power of up to 600 kW, and on module-based stationary megawatt solutions, i.e., with a total power output of more than 1000 kW. The generic fuel cell-based complete solutions, including service offers, will be marketed and sold jointly by the companies.
The statements from the two companies
«This collaboration is an optimal combination of each company’s capabilities and resources. For PowerCell’s part it means that we can benefit from Hitachi ABB Power Grids’ great expertise within power solutions and their great geographical footprint», said Richard Berkling, CEO of PowerCell.
«We look forward to deepening our collaboration with PowerCell Sweden to contribute together towards a carbon-neutral energy future through innovative solutions that strengthen the grid and enable the faster electrification of society», replied Jenny Larsson, Country Managing Director at Hitachi ABB Power Grids in Sweden.
