Ceres Power scales up production capability

By BFN News | 07:38 AM | Tuesday 23 February, 2016

Ceres Power Holdings has completed a manufacturing scale up project that enables high volume production capability, a key step towards mass market commercialisation of its unique fuel cell technology in response to growing market opportunities. The new high-speed print line at Ceres's manufacturing facility in Horsham has reduced ceramic on steel print-cycle time from 30 seconds to just 3 seconds, representing a 10 fold increase in processing speed, demonstrating that Ceres's processes are consistent with low cost, high volume manufacturing and corroborating the Steel Cell as a disruptive low cost fuel cell technology. This project has been successfully delivered by Ceres in partnership with ASM Alternative Energy (ASM AE), the global provider of screen printing equipment and part-funded by GBP0.7m from Innovate UK's Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative. By using standard processes developed for the solar industry and conventional materials such as steel, this project has been key to demonstrate that the Steel Cell can be mass-produced at an affordable price.
