Rolls-Royce and Lab1886, an innovation lab within the Mercedes-Benz group, have taken the first step in cooperation on the use of vehicle fuel cells for stationary power generation. A pilot project has now been agreed between the Rolls-Royce business unit Power Systems, which produces solutions under the MTU brand name, and Lab1886. Over the coming months, Rolls-Royce will develop an integrated MTU solution for sustainable off-grid generation of continuous and emergency power using vehicle fuel cells.

Focused on safety-critical applications

Such as data centers. MTU generator sets from Rolls-Royce are already in service at numerous data centers worldwide, providing emergency Iraq Phone Number Data power when needed to safeguard global internet traffic. To date, these generator sets have been diesel-engine based, but, according to Rolls-Royce, fuel cells could be a valid alternative. The pilot project will begin early next year and will include the construction of an emergency power plant for Rolls-Royce’s data center in Friedrichshafen.

The plant will be based on fuel cell

Modules built by Mercedes-Benz Fuel Cell GmbH. Mercedes-Benz has experience in hydrogen-powered electric vehicles through its work on many Saudi Arabia WhatsApp Number List generations of vehicles, while Rolls-Royce has experience with fuel cell systems using other technologies. Alongside fuel cell technology, Rolls-Royce is researching the manufacture of hydrogen and other synthetic fuels using renewable energy sources – also for use in fuel cells.
