TECO 2030 is organising a guest lecture at UiT The Arctic University of Norway, campus Narvik on 14 October with Jürgen Rechberger from Austrian powertrain technology company AVL. If you’re in the area then, do not miss out on this chance to learn all you need to know about hydrogen fuel cells!
Jürgen Rechberger, Vice President and Business Field Leader – Hydrogen and Fuel Cells at AVL will give a guest lecture in auditorium 4 at UiT Narvik, on Thursday 14 October, from 10:00-11:00. Participation is free of charge and everyone who is interested is welcome.
Rechberger is a world leading expert in hydrogen fuel cells and is together with his team at the Austrian powertrain technology company AVL developing fuel cell technology in cooperation with TECO 2030 for the TECO 2030 Marine Fuel Cells.
Rechberger has been working at AVL for the past 18 years and has a background in industrial engineering from TU Wien.
Breakfast seminar in Narvik on 14 October
On 14 October, TECO 2030 will also participate at a breakfast seminar organised by Futurum AS, the business company of Narvik municipality.
The event will take place in Norwegian and will focus on how hydrogen fuel cells can be used to reduce emissions at construction sites. Please click here for more information.
TECO 2030 is cooperating with the infrastructure contractor Implenia Norway on developing and piloting hydrogen-powered solutions that will eliminate emissions at construction sites. By switching to fuel cells, applications that currently get their energy from diesel engines or diesel generators can use hydrogen instead of fossil fuels and become emissions-free.
The engine of tomorrow
Hydrogen fuel cells are the engines of tomorrow and convert hydrogen into electricity while emitting nothing but water vapour and warm air.
The TECO 2030 Marine Fuel Cells will be produced at the TECO 2030 Innovation Center in Narvik, which will become Norway’s first large-scale production of hydrogen fuel cells.
TECO 2030 took over the building that will become home to the new plant this summer and is together with AVL now in the process of making detailed plans for how the factory and its production lines will be.
Designed for ships and other heavy-duty applications
The TECO 2030 Marine Fuel Cell is the first fuel cell system in the world that is specifically designed for use onboard ships and on other heavy-duty applications.
By exchanging one or more of their engines with a TECO 2030 Marine Fuel Cell, ships can switch from fossil fuels to hydrogen and reduce their emissions to zero. They can then sail emissions-free either on the whole journey or on shorter distances, such as when sailing into and out of ports.
Hydrogen fuel cells can also be used during port-stay, loading and discharging, enabling zero-emission operation at berth, without having to connect the ship to an onshore power supply.
TECO 2030 has received an “Approval in Principle” (AiP) by DNV, one of the world’s leading classification and certification bodies, for its Marine Fuel Cell System and its Fuel Cell Module FCM400, confirming that these are safe to use onboard ships.
