Robot to increase manufacturing capacity delivered
Proton Power Systems plc (AIM: PPS), the designer, developer and producer of fuel cells and fuel cell electric hybrid systems with a zero carbon footprint, announces that further to the recent conclusion of cooperation and partnership agreements and clear signs that the industry demand for hydrogen fuel cells is rapidly increasing, it is presently installing a stack manufacturing robot which will allow it to increase production capacity to 5,000 fuel cell units per annum. The manufacturing robot relating to the project Fit-4-AMandA (Fit for Automatic Manufacturing and Assembly) was financed by the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) agency. Proton was one of 5 professional bodies that took part in the development and rigorous testing programme in order to perfect performance and manufacturing capacity of the robot.
In order to meet future increasing demand, plans are already in place to modify the machine layout to be able to produce up to 30,000 stack units per year. Proton would like to assure all its supporters and those believing in our zero CO2 footprint that the company is ready and able with its GEN 4 stack module and fuel cell to cope with the expected demand in this partially world saving industry. This contribution to the industry will serve mobile applications (buses, trucks, etc.), stationary applications (power generation, standby & continuous power), and maritime (yachts, ships).
Helmut Gierse, Chairman, said: "We are delighted with this important development in the Company's progress as it contributes greatly to manufacturing ability and puts Proton in a commanding position to receive larger quantity orders before the end of 2020."
