ZBT is a research facility which is supporting industry to speed up the market introduction of fuel cells and other new energy technologies. Therefore, ZBT is performing market near work e.g. in the fields of production technologies and certification. In cooperation and consortia the development of components and systems aiming for demonstrators, functional models and engineering solutions is in focus. Additionally, basic research is per-formed in the fields of materials, components and processes. Besides low and high temperature PEM-fuel cell technologies also hydrogen generation and battery technologies are also core topics of ZBT.
ZBT has worked on various research projects dealing with topics which are important for the intended project. New corrosion resistant coatings for bipolar plates have been developed successfully. Besides this, extensive work has been done in order to characterize all components of fuel cells (MEA, bipolar plate, sealing). This includes analysis of corrosion resistance, electrical performance, long-term behavior and failure analysis.
The role of ZBT within the project will be scientific steering within the development of a new optical measurement system for fuel cell components. It brings in the scientific knowledge of existing and future fuel cells. These areas form an innovative technology platform as the basis for quality assurance systems to be developed. The focus of work will be put on the analysis of correlation between optical parameters and performance of the components and the fuel cell. This means that parameters like surface roughness will be put in context with measurements for electric conductivity or corrosion resistance. With the help of the scientific research quality parameters for optical measurement shall be developed as well as new services for quality assurance and failure analysis which can be offered to fuel cell manufacturers.

HyMove manufactures hydrogen fuel cell systems for use as range extenders in electric buses and heavy duty vehicles (FCEV).  Using the HyMove H2FC system in an electric vehicle is highly fuel efficient and economic. A relatively small FC system of 60kW, combined with a battery pack which produces the peak acceleration power and recovers the breaking energy, is sufficient in a city bus with mixed city and regional services.  

Participation in the project
In the project regarding super precision Surface Measurement System for fuel cells HyMove is an end-user.  HyMove is interested in reliable fuel cells to be used in their systems.  HyMove cooperates with Nedstack and integrates the PEM fuel cell stacks, developed and manufactured by Nedstack, in the systems for mobile applications and off-grid power. As the weakest cell in a stack determines the total range HyMove is interested in finding better test methods to improve stacks, have less failures and reduce costs. In the frame of this project HyMove defines requirements for a hydrogen fuel cell  stack especially regarding the uniformity in performance of each individual cell. Nedstack evaluates the quality control parameters and test the effect on the reliability of their fuel cell stacks.

Nedstack fuel cell technology B.V. manufactures and commercializes PEM fuel cell stacks. Customers mainly are system integrators of  PEM fuel cells for stationary applications. With partners, Nedstack also produces large stationary fuel cell systems, and have developed and delivered pre-commercial products for transport applications. Nedstack has developed PEM Power Plant know how in both the Delfzijl 70 kW pilot PEM power plant and the Solvay 1 MW PEM power plant. In both projects Nedstack was responsible for the overall project management. Early 2016, within the FCH-JU funded DemcoPEM-2MW project, Nedstack delivered stacks and know-how for the 2MW to the system integrator. The system will be operational in Q3 2016. Nedstack was established in 1999 as a spin-off of the PEM fuel cell activities of AkzoNobel.

Reason for collaborating
Within the Interreg V Rocket SuperSurf Project, Nedstack is interested in improving reliability and reducing cost of the cell plates for the fuel cell stack for their customers. Within this Project this is done by analysing and implementing, on fuel cell component level, the novel optical 2D and 3D Quality Control techniques brought in by the Project partners and developed with the Project partners.
