PowerCell Sweden AB (publ) has signed an agreement with the Australian system integrator ENGV Pty Ltd, making ENGV the new distributor and service provider for PowerCell Sweden AB in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
The two companies have been working together since 2020 when ENGV ordered an MS-100 fuel cell system from PowerCell for use in Australia’s first hydrogen stationary power demonstration plant in Denham, in remote Western Australia. ENGV is an integrator and a full-service provider meeting the needs of customers within all areas of gas and hydrogen generation, compression, storage and transportation to help in the transition to a low carbon economy.
To support the use of hydrogen as energy and for storage of energy, Australia launched a National Hydrogen Strategy in 2019. The strategy aims to position the domestic hydrogen industry as a major player by 2030. To kickstart Australia’s emerging hydrogen industry the federal government has then established a new $300 million fund to invest in the industry.
“Australia sees the huge potential in hydrogen and is making big efforts to establish a hydrogen-based and fully sustainable energy system. By having ENGV representing us in the important Australian market we will be in a very good position to benefit from the Australian efforts within the hydrogen sector”, Andreas Bodén, Director Sales & Marketing at PowerCell Sweden said.
“Australia’s high reliance on remote area diesel power generation creates a substantial opportunity for the Powercell Sweden’s technology and ENGVs ability to containerize and localize for the unique Australia climate and market requirements. ENGV is very pleased to formalize our relationship and it will provide a pathway to zero emissions for many remote locations and communities”, Sean Blythe, CEO and founder of ENGV stated.
