AFC Energy completes rigorous HAZOP study
Guildford, 8 August 2011 – AFC Energy, the world's leading developer of low cost alkaline fuel cells, is pleased to announce that the hazard and operability (HAZOP) study of its commercial Beta System has now been successfully completed. This significant milestone on AFC Energy’s route to commercialisation will pave the way for future deployment at industrial partner premises.
Areas for improvement highlighted by the study have been incorporated into the Beta System, which is currently being commissioned at the company's premises in Dunsfold, Guildford. None of the modifications involved any significant redesign work and the company is on track with its plans to deploy a beta system in the field for testing.
Ian Balchin, deputy chairman of AFC Energy, commented: "AFC Energy is delighted to have successfully completed this rigorous study. We have found the HAZOP process to be extremely valuable and it takes us another step forward towards deployment and field testing."
The completion of the HAZOP study and the technical progress of recent months go hand-in-hand with the development of commercial opportunities in a range of markets, including tie-ups with Linc Energy, the John Lewis Partnership, and N2telligence.
