New fuel cell system for electrification on land and sea
Published: 4 November 2019 - Carly Wills
PowerCell Sweden has developed a new and improved version of its MS-100 fuel cell system.
The MS-100 is 30 per cent more compact and has improved operating life time as well as robustness for demanding applications on land and at sea.
The MS-100 fuel cell system has been developed for marine applications and off-road applications such as construction and material handling equipment which demand reliable operation, high power output and flexibility.
The robust MS-100 is designed to withstand vibrations to ensure a long service life while providing quick and smooth start-up, regardless of weather conditions. MS-100 offers a maximum power output of 100kW and, by connecting systems in series, it’s possible to reach megawatt power levels.
The MS-100 system is based on the PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack. The S3 stack technology features compact metallic bipolar plates with large active area and membrane electrode assembly (MEA) that delivers a minimum operating lifetime of 20,000 hours.
With its compact design and a volume of only 276 litres, the versatile MS-100 can be easily integrated and used in a varying number of applications. In addition, MS-100 is available in both vertical and horizontal positioning which facilitates installation when space is limited.
