PowerCell joins Camelot project to advance fuel cell technology

The coordinated European development project Camelot aims to produce a new generation of high-performance membrane electrode assemblies (MEA), a central component in a fuel cell that is essential for its service life, power production and efficiency.

Camelot brings together research institutions, universities and industrial companies from several European countries and has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

PowerCell Sweden AB has joined the project to accelerate its long-term technological development. The company has extensive experience in developing technologies under the framework of industry-wide European development projects as they allow the company to accumulate expertise that can be applied to the development of its core technology. The next generation of industrialized fuel cell stack technology has been developed under the German industrial project Autostack Industrie since 2017, in which PowerCell is responsible for developing a stack for serial production for the German automotive industry.

By participating in Camelot, the company is taking yet another important step in continuing technological developments and the project marks the start of the company’s development of future generations of technology.

Long-term development

“This type of cooperation is very important for our long-term technological development since it challenges and acts as a driving force, thereby generating increased understanding and greater expertise in applicable technological developments. Demand for hydrogen-electric solutions is on the rise in an increasing number of applications and this places stricter requirements on the performance of fuel cells and the ability to optimize them for specific areas of application and segments. Participating in this type of project allows us to secure leading technology and a competitive products portfolio so that we can continue to create value for our customers in the future,” said Richard Berkling, CEO of PowerCell Sweden AB.
