ABB Orders First Alkaline Hydrogen Fuel Cell System from AFC Energy for use in High-Power e-Mobility Charging

AFC Energy ("AFC Energy" or the "Company"), a leading provider of hydrogen power generation technologies, is pleased to announce that ABB B.V. ("ABB"), a leading global technology company, has placed its first order for the high energy-dense "S" Series hydrogen fuel cell system. The order is worth £4 million, with the zero-emission power generator system scheduled for delivery ahead of schedule in early 2023.

ABB will use the first 200kW "S" Series system, which can be fuelled with hydrogen or ammonia, for high-power E.V. charging.  ABB is the global leader in providing E.V. charging solutions with a presence in 80 markets globally.  The collaboration with AFC Energy is designed to enable ABB to provide high-power E.V. charging to its customers in regions where grid connectivity is absent or constrained.

The 200kW "S" Series is also suitable for other uses where ABB and AFC Energy collaborate, such as in data centers, shipping, and off-grid power markets.

Frank Muehlon, President of ABB's E-mobility Division, said:

"With the accelerating transition to electric vehicles there is an increasingly urgent need for additional fast charging capability and particularly in cost effective areas that are not connected to the grid or where the grid is constrained. We believe AFC Energy's zero-emission, hydrogen fuel cell system to be part of the solution that will allow us to make E.V.s accessible to everyone."    

Adam Bond, Chief Executive Officer at AFC Energy, said: 

"We are delighted to receive our first "S" Series fuel cell system order from ABB and look forward to delivering a 200kW charging system in early 2023.

"AFC Energy is committed to supporting ABB in delivering sustainable e-Mobility infrastructure to the world's growing fleet of electric vehicles.  We believe our new "S" Series fuel cell platform will become the "go-to" high performance fuel cell technology capturing multiple fuelling strategies, whilst affording best in class AEM power density and efficiency."
