Refire and ECAP 1

In November 2019, eCap, as the leading provider of electric mobility solutions, began a partnership with Re-Fire Technology, the market leader in the field of fuel cell technologies. The aim of the cooperation is to bundle the technical and economic know-how of both partners for the joint development of cross-sector fuel cell projects.

The first milestone of this partnership was reached in May 2020 by the approval of the “Principle” by the international classification society DNV GL for a concept for the maritime use of re-fire fuel cells. The “Hydrogen Electric System” (H2ES) developed by eCap combines the proven Re-Fire fuel cell technology with the latest hydrogen and electrical components to form an innovative and environmentally friendly drive solution for shipping.
