H2 mobility R&D at CTU Prague
Prague, Czech Republic
The Czech Technical University in Prague (CTU) is one of the largest and oldest technical universities in Europe – and has invested in a state-of-the-art H2 lab featuring Enapter’s AEM Electrolysers
By investing in their own local green hydrogen lab, the university decided to strengthen its relevance, attract future researchers and contribute to a greener future. With their 10 kW H2 project integrated by our Czech partner Valcon International, students and researchers in the Czech capital are delving deeper into a fuel cell test bed to bed to close the H2 cycle, as well as test direct H2 combustion in a single cyclinder IC engine.
The project features four of Enapter’s single-core AEM Electrolysers to produce on-site green hydrogen that can then be stored at 35 bar for later research and testing purposes, while our dryer module also ensures fuel cell-grade H2 at 99.999% purity. Later this year, a gas booster will be installed to pressurise the produced hydrogen up to 300 bar. The AEM cabinet unit is powered by grid electricity for now, but the university’s plan is to connect it to a rooftop PV array in the near future.
