TECO 2030’s Fuel Cell module runs at 100% power capacity in test bed

TECO 2030 successfully reached stable and maximum power output of zero emission hydrogen-electric power with its disruptive fuel cell system.

Since November 2023, the system has been connected to AVL’s testbed facility in Graz, Austria. It has undergone minor modifications and adjustments to achieve its maximum power output. The TECO 2030 fuel cell system has successfully achieved a full power output by using hydrogen as fuel.

This positions the system as the most powerful marine fuel cell system globally, which is purposely designed for heavy-duty industrial applications. The unique design is based on our 30 years of maritime experience and AVL’s two decades of R&D experience in the field of hydrogen and fuel cells.

TECO 2030’s fuel cell technology features a modular system with installed power capacity of 400kW’s. This includes exceptional energy efficiency, an inherent safety concept, optimal weight and size dimensions, advanced component design, extended lifespan, and rapid dynamic load response.

“This milestone is the biggest one so far in the history of TECO 2030 Group, we now have a fully functional fuel cell that is almost ready for market deployment and powering our client’s applications with zero emission hydrogen-electric power. This is a moment we have all been waiting for since we started our development four years ago. A huge achievement by the entire team at TECO 2030 and AVL,” said Tore Enger. “All in all, the team is overwhelmed by how well the system operates and how the design has beat our expected performances and proven our position as a leading provider of heavy-duty fuel cell applications,” Enger concludes.
