ECCE: Fuel cell system for off-road transportation

Smart Grid


As a continuation of the SPACT80 project, the ECCE project aims at experimenting a fuel cell generator for embedded road applications public and freight transport in city and all-terrains areas. The 80 kW fuel cell developed by HELION Hydrogen Power and a tested on a locomotive of the SNCF (French National Railway Company), was integrated into an all-terrain vehicle of DGA (the General Delegation for Armaments). A full-scale test, which enables HELION Hydrogen Power to validate its expertise in manufacturing fuel cell systems for transport applications.

Partners: CEA, INRETS, FCellSys
