- Supply of electricity and heating/cooling heat to apartments and buildings in Nanhai, Foshan, China
- The government’s support for hydrogen ecosystem development and close collaboration with domestic partners
- Shipped four hydrogen fuel cells worth $13.2 million to China
Doosan Fuel Cell is the first in Korea to export hydrogen fuel cells overseas.
Doosan Fuel Cell announced on the 27th of September that it will hold a shipping ceremony to commemorate the first overseas export of hydrogen fuel cells at its production plant located in Iksan, Jeollabuk-do. The event will be attended by Park Ki-young, Vice Minister of Trade, Industry and Energy, Shin Won-shik, Deputy Governor of Jeollabuk-do, and Yoo Su-kyung, CEO of Doosan Fuel Cell, Iksan Mayor Jeong Heon-yul.
Doosan Fuel Cell installed four 440 kW hydrogen fuel cells as distributed power sources in Nanhai, Foshan, China to supply electricity and heat for cooling and heating to apartments and buildings. In addition, they will provide support for hydrogen fuel cell installation, test operation, and Long-Term Service Agreement (LTSA), and will actively cooperate to create and expand China’s hydrogen fuel cell power generation market in the future.
Doosan Fuel Cell CEO Yoo Soo-kyung said, “This overseas export is supported by the government’s active support for fostering a hydrogen ecosystem, Destin Power, which jointly developed a Power Conversion System (PCS) for hydrogen fuel cells, as well as various other companies such as Hi Air Korea and J&L Tech. It is the first fruit of cooperation with partners,” he said. “Based on this first export, we will continue our efforts to expand the market by supplying hydrogen fuel cells to Shandong and Beijing.”
Meanwhile, as of last year, the supply of hydrogen fuel cells for power generation in major countries was 601 MW in Korea, 483 MW in the US, and 313 MW in Japan.
