UK-based ITM Power will provide hydrogen generation, storage, and dispensing technology through its HFuel® technology platform, which is the basis of its ongoing Hydrogen On Site Trial (HOST). The company will also bring its hydrogen energy system expertise for integrating electrolyzers and fuel cells.
‘Partnering with DFC for the development of hydrogen energy projects is a very exciting step for ITM Power,’ says Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power.
‘Renewable energy policies are well developed in the Benelux countries, and the deployment of hydrogen as a clean fuel is gaining momentum.’
The Dutch Fuel Cell Consortium is engaged in the development, implementation, and exploitation of energy systems based on fuel cells and alternative energy technologies. It has developed an extensive network of technology and marketing partners in the Benelux countries, bringing together consortia of experienced partners.
Current DFC projects include city buses and hydrogen refueling stations, renewable energy supply for mobile telecom base stations, and energy storage for renewable energy sites.
‘We have been impressed with the HOST trials developed by ITM Power in the UK, and with the HFuel refueling station technology,’ says Theo Hendriks, Managing Director of DFC.
‘Partnering with ITM Power provides the opportunity to introduce their technology to the rapidly expanding alternative energy market in the Benelux countries.’
