The Morphic subsidiary Exergy Fuel Cells has initiated a partnership with the Russian Federal Nuclear Center (RFNC) on development and delivery of fuel cells and related technology.

So far, Exergy Company while using the International Science and Technology Center mechanisms has delivered fuel cell stacks with proton exchange membrane (PEMFC) to RFNC-VNIIEF, where on basis thereof a stand-alone 6kW power plant is being developed and made ready for putting into operation at one of the JSC Gazprom sites. Toward this end, Exergy and RFNC-VNIIEF have been jointly developing power electronics. The fuel cell-based power plant is a stand-alone unit that converts simple gases, e.g. methane, into hydrogen and thanks to the fuel cell generates electric power for consumer needs while or where the grid is not available. The stack at RFNC-VNIIEF has been operating successfully, and discussions are now underway on delivery of other types of stacks and systems for various purposes.

“RFNC is one of the world’s leading developers of energy technologies. We are very proud of our partnership with RFNC. The amount of interest in our systems point to the strength of our offering,” Martin Valfridsson, President and CEO of Morphic Technologies AB, says.

The Russian Federal Nuclear Center is Russia’s largest development center for defense and civil research. The center was founded in 1946 and has been playing a vital role in building up Russian expertise in nuclear technologies and energy.
