AFC Energy is to explore the feasibility of delivering hydrogen fuel cell technology at Protos.  In an announcement to shareholders, the company confirmed that it will undertake a study over the coming months following an agreement with Peel Environmental.

The company will explore whether a staged development of fuel cells could eventually lead to delivery of 50MW of hydrogen fuel cell capacity at the site.

Myles Kitcher, Managing Director of Peel Environmental and Protos, said:
“We are delighted to partner with AFC Energy in investigating the feasibility of this commercial scale hydrogen fuel cell techno-economic feasibility study, working towards a fuel cell project of  this scale.  AFC’s hydrogen fuel cell precinct study will complement the existing low carbon energy generation technologies on site at Protos. 

“This type of technology demonstration at Protos, exemplifies the industrial strategy which the UK government is promoting.  A successful hydrogen fuel cell project of this scale will be a first for the UK and we hope to be able to support more new technologies in the future to provide regional economic growth and competitive low carbon domestic energy.”
