With an aim to deliver safe, reliable, and low-cost energy, Denmark-based Blue World Technologies and Clayton Power, a provider of mobile & off-grid power solutions, joined hands to develop next-generation methanol fuel cell solutions.

The two companies have been working together to develop a small-scale mobile methanol fuel cell solution for stationary and auxiliary power. They aim to develop a solution in the 5 to 15-kilowatt power range.

The methanol fuel cell solution will combine Blue World Technologies’ high-temperature proton exchange membrane (HTPEM) technology, and Clayton Power’s lithium-ion battery solution to provide an instant- and continuous power supply.

Moreover, the effort has been supported by Danish Energy Agency through the EUDP (Danish Energy Technology Development and Demonstration Program) and includes Aalborg University as a key knowledge partner.

The aim is to develop a solution perfect for installation onboard heavy-duty trucks to generate silent and vibration-free energy powering appliances (air conditioning, TV, microwave, refrigeration and other equipment) during vehicle stops or as a portable/mobile generator supplying power beyond the grid for tools and equipment at construction sites, telecommunication sites, remote medical facilities, and other off-grid needs.

Besides, the fuel cell power unit has zero particle emission and has a net-zero carbon operation when powered with methanol from renewable sources.

Commenting on the development, Mads Friis Jensen, Chief Commercial Officer and Co-founder, Blue World Technologies, said “the main commercial solutions available today are diesel and battery APUs, each with their own benefits and drawbacks. Battery APUs are efficient, silent, and ideal for applications with a specific discharge time. Diesel APUs generate power as long as fuel is available, however, they are dirty, noisy, and inefficient. We are thrilled about the collaboration with Clayton Power, as we are looking forward to combining the best of both worlds and offer an efficient, silent, and CO2-neutral methanol fuel cell APU and mobile generator solution for backup or continuous power generation.”
