Convion has reached a significant milestone of 5000 loading hours with a C50 SOFC product. Purpose of an internal validation project was to verify performance and functionality of the new C50 product and to gain long term operational experience of it. A new design including a unique process integration concept builds foundations for significant cost reduction of SOFC systems. Tests were a success and we were pleased with both performance and functionality of the system. With this milestone, we are happy to proceed towards demonstrating and piloting Convion SOFC CHP (Combined Heat and Power generation) product with customers. First deliveries will take place in Q3/2016 within a DEMOSOFC project.
Convion is happy to announce its participation to the world’s premier trade fair for industrial technology, 2016 Hannover Messe, taking place April 25-29 at exhibition grounds, Hannover. We will exhibit together with a Finnish delegation in the Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries (@H2FC_Hannover). Please, visit us at the Finnish pavilion, Hall 27, Stand D55.
Convion is pleased to announce its participation in the 12th International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo held at Tokyo Big Sight, Japan, from March 2nd through March 4th, 2016. Please, visit us at the East Hall, booth E4/32-41. FC EXPO 2016 is one of the most important annual technology events for fuel cell industry. It will be held inside The World Smart Energy Week 2016, forming a comprehensive smart energy show presenting the latest products, technologies and solutions from various areas of smart and renewable energy business.
In September 2015, a new European R&D project INNO-SOFC for developing next-generation 50kW fuel cell systems for efficient and low-emission electricity production was started. Convion is a member of a large European consortium aiming to collaborate on forming an efficient value chain for entire fuel cell systems.
An EU Horizon 2020 funded project is co-ordinated by VTT and will be completed by April 2018.The project budget is EUR 4 million, of which the Finnish SME’s Convion and Elcogen will be allocated a total of EUR 2.3 million.
We thank all the visitors, customers, distributors and suppliers for visiting our booth C54 at this year’s Group Exhibit Hydrogen + Fuel Cells + Batteries in Hannover. Europe’s largest exhibition for hydrogen, fuel cells and batteries once again brought together the industry at large for contacts and discussions.
Convion exhibited along with Elcogen Ltd and VTT at the Finnish Pavilion. The exhibition was a great success for Convion and gave us an opportunity to tell our latest SOFC product news and development status, which generated great interest. Please, see below H2FC-FAIR -video, where Mr. Tuomas Hakala of Convion and Dr. Matti Noponen of Elcogen discuss about fuel cell activities in Finland.
Please, do not hesitate to contact us for any questions or feedback you may have following the exhibition. We hope you enjoyed your visit and hope to see you again next year.
As of February the 23rd, Convion started an internal validation of its new Convion C50 product. The product is an integrated fuel cell power module based on solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology and has nominal power output of 58kWe. Due to its modular structure, installations ranging from 58kW up to several hundreds of kilowatts can be accomplished by parallel installation of individual modules.
The product is capable of combined heat and power generation (CHP) and is suited for operation on either natural gas or biogas. The C50 product may operate parallel to grid or in an island mode, securing critical loads in case of power outages.
