Powercell Sweden has introduced an industrialised high-power fuel cell module, which has been custom-built to facilitate the electrification of marine applications.

With a compact design and low weight, PowerCellution Marine System 200 has been built from numerous fuel cell systems which have been combined into a single unit.

Each module has 200kW of power, however, by connecting the modules in parallel, the power can easily be amplified to the megawatt range.

The Marine System 200 forms the elementary building block of PowerCell’s complete hydrogen-electric solution for the marine segment.

PowerCell Sweden CEO Richard Berkling said: “With PowerCellution Marine System 200 we can offer the marine segment a scalable and fully industrialised solution meeting the segment’s need for an increased electrification. Our systems offer customers an emission-free operation that does not force them to compromise in terms of performance.”

The main component of the module is the PowerCell S3 fuel cell stack, which amalgamates a compact format with high power.

The company stated that the module will help marine companies transition their fleets for the more rigorous emissions regulations which are approaching.

Furthermore, it is completely classifiable, as per International Maritime Organisation (IMO) marine standards.

The module has been created in partnership with PowerCell’s clients and in discussion with maritime classification societies.

In a statement, PowerCell said: “Fuel cells running on hydrogen produced from renewable energy sources, so-called green hydrogen, do not produce any other emissions than pure water and offer a fully sustainable electrification of a marine power units for both propulsion and on-board power generation purposes.”

In April last year, the company received an order from a European shipyard for a 3.2MW marine fuel cell system.

Earlier this year, Norwegian Prototech also placed an order for a marine fuel cell module.
