MTSA Technopower was involved in building the world's largest PEM (proton-exchange membrane) fuel cell power plant in Yingkow, China, a 2 MW facility that uses waste hydrogen to generate electricity for Ynnovate Sanzheng (Yingkou) Fine Chemicals Co Ltd.

"Both companies have experience in the field of producing fuel cell stacks, integrating electrolyser stacks and fuel cell stacks to produce containerised systems of up to 10 MW of power capacity," Proton said in a notice to the London Stock Exchange.

The systems can be used to shave peak power demand in industrial or residential settings, or in gas-to-power applications for industrial units, in ship propulsion and power supply in remote areas, Proton said.

Hydrogen-fed fuel cells are used in emergency power supply applications, ensuring uninterrupted supply to, for instance, telecoms operations, data centers and industrial processes.

If the hydrogen is produced via electrolysis of renewable energy, fuel cells can form a component in controllable decarbonized, decentralized energy production.

Projects integrating electrolysers and fuel cells are also beginning to spring up in municipal transport programs and on refuelling forecourts.

Proton Power System's Bavarian subsidiary Proton Motor and Skoda on Thursday announced an agreement to develop, sell and service fuel cell electric buses.

Earlier in the month it booked a Eur4 million ($4.5 million) order for 15 hydrogen-powered fuel cells for electric buses for four German city councils.

The fuel cells can be integrated in battery-powered buses to extend their range.
