AFC Energy Announces Partnership with Foster Wheeler for Industrial Fuel Cells

15 Apr 2013

AFC Energy is working with Foster Wheeler, the global engineering and construction contractor and power generation equipment supplier, to develop and commercially roll-out fuel cell systems for industrial applications. 

Foster Wheeler will work closely with AFC Energy in the engineering and benchmarking of AFC Energy’s fuel cell systems and scaling up deployment of these systems at commercial sites – including at Industrial Chemicals Ltd (ICL), a leading UK chemicals company, where a 1 MW AFC hydrogen fuel cell plant will be installed.

During an initial twelve-month period, Foster Wheeler will focus on the review of critical design and fabrication milestones for AFC Energy’s base-level, multi-cartridge 250 kW generation system that will form the building block of the ICL plant. Foster Wheeler will also chair independent safety and reliability reviews, including HAZOP and model reviews to evaluate engineering designs.

AFC Energy and Foster Wheeler plan to develop their relationship to a stage where Foster Wheeler would be the selected contractor to design and install full-scale fuel systems based on AFC  technology in a wide range of industrial and utility-scale applications.

New International Business Development Manager

AFC Energy has also appointed an International Business Development Manager, effective 6 April 2013. Robert S. Kelly joins AFC from Air Products and Chemicals Inc., where he held the position of business development manager for its hydrogen energy business with a focus on Asia and South America. Mr Kelly brings 25 years’ international experience within technology-driven markets to AFC Energy.
