TECO 2030s FUEL CELLS TO RUN ON GREEN HYDROGEN

TECO 2030s FUEL CELLS TO RUN ON GREEN HYDROGEN

Tuesday, August 31, 2021 

Norwegian company Teco 2030 has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Everfuel of Denmark, a leading European hydrogen supplier, for the delivery of green hydrogen to fuel its fuel cells and fuel cell generators.

As part of the agreement, the companies will develop solutions enabling Everfuel to distribute and deliver green hydrogen to Teco 2030’s hydrogen fuel cell power generator, including on board ships. The cooperation between the two companies will contribute towards decarbonisation, reducing emissions by switching from diesel generators to zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell generators.

Diesel generators cause greenhouse gas emissions and pollution and are often used to produce electricity when there is no available connection to a power grid, such as in ports with limited grid capacity.

“We are very excited about our new cooperation with Everfuel because it means that we will soon be able to offer our customers easy access to green hydrogen to fuel our fuel cells in areas that are difficult to decarbonise,” said Tore Enger, CEO, Teco 2030. "Due to our new cooperation with Everfuel, projects and activities that use diesel generators will now be able to reduce their climate footprint by switching to emissions-free fuel cell generators.”

Green hydrogen is hydrogen produced with renewable energy such as electricity from hydropower plants, wind turbines and solar panels. By replacing traditional combustion engines running on fossil fuels with fuel cells fuelled by green hydrogen, auxiliary power generation can become completely emissions-free.

“We are very excited to develop distribution and delivery solutions for users of the robust and high-capacity fuel cells delivered by Teco 2030. We believe it will open a huge market for hydrogen and introduce zero-emission solutions in hard-to-decarbonise segments,” said Jacob Krogsgaard, CEO Everfuel.

Teco 2030 is developing hydrogen fuel cells that are specifically designed for use on ships and other heavy-duty applications. Hydrogen fuel cells convert hydrogen into electricity while emitting only water vapour and warm air. Teco 2030 is also developing fuel cell generators that can replace diesel generators. The fuel cell generators will function much like a generator that is powered by diesel or other fossil fuels but will use hydrogen as fuel and will therefore be emissions-free.
