Fit-4-AMandA focusses on the industrialisation of stack production and delivering affordable fuel cell systems in larger quantities to saturate the emerging market/demand. Heart of our project is to build a worldwide new and unique machine which allows serially produce the centrepiece of fuel cell system: the stack. This will revolutionize the way how stacks are produced in future.
Fit-4-AMandA’s ambition is to modify the current design of PEMFC stacks and stack components, and build an entirely new equipment facilitating automation of the stack assembly process (including inline non-destructive tests). Furthermore, it will demonstrate the resulting mass-produced stacks in real environment – by integration the output into a Light-Commercial-Vehicle. The project will offer the mass production machine innovative solutions, which effect process, product and tools with the objective to bring the MRL from 5 to 7.
“Proton Motor feels a strong interest in the market for sustainable energy solutions based on fuel cells and cannot afford to go on without applying significant steps in terms of automated stack production. Read more
"We participate in Fit4AMandA in order to prepare for the upcoming equipment market for the automatic assembling of fuel cells, stacks and system assembly and testing. We want to design and support the step from laboratory manufacturing to series production..." Read more
"IRD Fuel Cells’ participation in Fit-4-Amanda is a unique possibility for us to fulfil the specified demands for automatic stack assembly in combination with improved performance and general quality of the components." Read more
The Fit-4-AMandA project, submitted within the call H2020-JTI-FCH-2016-1, will be closely following the activities of the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking.
In general, the Fit-4-AMandA consortium is open to cooperate with any project that focuses on stacks assembly, automatization of its production, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
