Fuel Cell Systems, a subsidiary of the UK’s UPS Systems PLC, has joined the EU Alkammonia project. Expected to commence this month with a grant of €1.96 million (£1.53 million), the project will last three years and will see AFC Energy use the assets it acquired from ammonia fuel cell specialist Diverse Energy in December 2012 to develop an ammonia-fed alkaline fuel cell. Acta announced in December that it will supply ammonia cracking catalysts for the project.

Fuel Cell Systems will design and develop power-conditioning equipment to regulate the fuel cell’s output to 48 V, as well as handling the integration of components into a safe, compact, easily operable and easily maintainable power generation system.
