Guangdong Qingnengs 10000 unit fuel cell core components and system manufacturing base was officially put into operation

Shanghai — On the morning of November 22, Qingneng’s subsidiary-Guangdong Qingneng New Energy Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as Guangdong Qingneng) 10,000-unit high-power fuel cell held a ceremony for the commissioning of the R&D and production base for reactors, systems and core components and it was held in Danzao Town, Nanhai District, Foshan.

Mr. Huang Zhibin and Cai Hanquan, deputy heads of Nanhai District, as well as leaders of relevant departments of the district government and Danzao Town government, Yan Jinwen, chairman of Foshan Muck Transportation Industry Association, Zhang Chi, general manager of Qingneng shares, and upstream and downstream partners attended the ceremony.

Qingneng General Manager Zhang Chi first made a speech. He said: As Qingneng’s regional headquarters center in the Pearl River Delta region, which integrates advanced technology research and development, fully automated production and domestic and foreign sales, it covers an area of ​​4,800 square meters. Meters, the planned production capacity is 10,000 units/year.

The factory covers the automated production and system integration of core components such as fuel cell membrane electrodes, bipolar plates, stacks, and hydrogen cycle systems, and is designed and constructed in strict accordance with the IATF16949 automotive quality standard system.

With advanced production line equipment and equipped with MES, ERP and other information-based industrial management software to ensure that production efficiency and product quality are comparable to international comprehensive performance indicators.

In the future, Guangdong Qingneng will use its outstanding R&D capabilities, backed by Nanhai’s high-quality industrial supporting facilities and sound policy support, link up with upstream and downstream partners, continue to focus on the extension of domestic and foreign industrial chains, and in-depth empower the industry as a leader in the fuel cell industry.

The launch ceremony for the trial operation of the 31-ton fuel cell muck truck project was held at the event site .

The core components of the fuel cell-membrane electrode, bipolar plate, stack and hydrogen cycle system required by the project will be developed and produced by Guangdong Qingneng .

At present, the first batch of eight 31-ton muck trucks using Qingneng’s second-generation 120kW fuel cell system have already rolled off the assembly line. The vehicles will complete relevant procedures and conduct trial operations before the end of 2021 to provide transportation services for various construction projects in Foshan.

Yan Jinwen, Chairman of Foshan Muck Transportation Industry Association, said at the launching ceremony: “I hope that this cooperation with Guangdong Qingneng will help Foshan start the vehicle promotion mission in the leading cities of hydrogen energy and fuel cell demonstration, and do a solid job of demonstrating vehicles. Operate and maintain, jointly create a good market order, and provide practical practices for achieving the “dual carbon” goal.”

As the highland of Foshan’s hydrogen energy and fuel cell industry, Nanhai has a first-mover advantage in policy support and innovation and the creation of an ecological chain. The recently released “Implementation Plan for the Promotion and Application of New Energy (Hydrogen) Municipal and Logistics Vehicles in Nanhai District, Foshan City (2021-2025)” includes hydrogenation and operation subsidies, enterprise replacement subsidies, green operation incentives, and the passage of Foshan First Ring Expressway Subsidies, vehicle rights of way, etc., to encourage the renewal of hydrogen and electrification of vehicles in key application areas such as municipalities, ports, logistics parks, and factories.

This move will undoubtedly have important demonstration significance in accelerating the commercialization process of hydrogen vehicles and promoting the green and low-carbon transformation of the energy structure. The first batch of eight Hyisen fuel cell muck trucks that were put into operation this time are based on this framework. Demonstration project. More than 60% of the core components of the vehicle’s fuel cell have been locally produced and manufactured, and the appearance and shape design have also been innovated to break the current bad habit of dump trucks that exceed the limit and overload, and establish the standardization and standardization of the industry.

After the ceremony, the guests visited the Guangdong Qingneng factory. In the future, Guangdong Qingneng, as a new force of hydrogen energy in the South China Sea, will deeply participate in the ecological chain construction of fuel cell vehicle demonstration cities and contribute to the development of the hydrogen energy industry.
