Project Set-up

The core idea of StasHH is the realisation of a comprehensive standard for fuel-cell modules: StasHH will define this standard, build prototypes implementing it and test them thoroughly. The extensive test campaign on multiple prototypes is meant to validate the standard, and prove that all FCM suppliers can provide standard-compliant modules.

The StasHH standard will encompass physical size (“as few as possible, as many as needed”), but also flow interfaces (air, hydrogen, coolant and power), digital interface (API for control, monitoring, diagnostics), testing protocols and safety requirements.

Such a module will have the following characteristics:

  • it shall include at least the FC stack, the air supply system, the hydrogen system (storage excluded) and the cooling system (excluding radiators and coolers);
  • it shall deliver from 30 to 100 kWnet
  • it shall be scalable to at least 1 MW by integrating multiple units;
  • it shall be employable in different heavy-duty applications;
  • its mechanical size shall be designed to fit common battery pack sizes and the available space in different heavy duty applications, to facilitate switching between battery and hydrogen technologies both technically and economically.

Comprehensive tests will be run on each of these systems acccording to the standard test protocols defined in StasHH. StasHH will also consider the safety aspects related to the standard with a work package entirely dedicated to RCS and Safety. StasHH’ standard will be disseminated worldwide
