Fuel cell projects wins ONS 2002 Innovation Award News
// August 30, 2002
Aker Kvaerner, Shell and Statkraft have been awarded the ONS 2002 Innovation Award at this year's Offshore Northern Seas exhibition and conference in Stavanger, Norway.
The Award is for the development of solid oxide fuel cell technology for the production of electrical power offshore. The Bellona Foundation is also playing an important role in the project.
If the project is a success, it will be possible to substitute present day gas turbines, with fuel cells. The fuel cells are twice as efficient as the gas turbines - and are free from C02 emissions.
The ultimate goal for the co-operation is to take the lead in the commercialization of multi-megawatt fuel cells. This technology can also be applied for onshore power production and the fuel cells have a huge, future market potential.
A 250kW prototype is to be built at Kollsnes in Norway by 2004.
