TECO 2030’s FCM400 development enters final stages
Norway’s cleantech company TECO 2030 has completed the selection of all major component suppliers and procured the necessary parts for the first fuel cell modules FCM400, bringing the modules’ development close to completion.
The first units are now ready for assembly, with the project now shifting from design engineering to the build and validation phase.
According to TECO 2030, the first FCM400 will be assembled at its partner AVL’s facility in Graz, Austria during Q2 2023, before its scheduled operation in the advanced testbed for complete simulation, expected to be completed during Q3 2023.
“The milestone proves the maturity of the product details and is a step towards reaching our final product design. In other words, a clear indication of development progressions as we move into a new step in the development project timeline, according to our schedule. Zero-emission fuel cell power sources for heavy-duty and marine applications are very soon ready for market introduction, and we are ready to provide clients with fuel cells performing like never seen before. The FCM400 will undoubtedly become a propulsion game-changer in the marine industry,” said Tore Enger, Group CEO of TECO 2030.
The FCM400 is the building block in TECO 2030’s Fuel Cell Power System and according to the company, it is a key driver towards achieving zero emissions while operating marine and heavy-duty applications.
Its system is designed for an electrical capacity of 400kW.
