Ceres Power and Weichai Power develops first prototype range extender for Chinese electric buses

Ceres Power and Weichai Power said they had developed a first prototype range extender for Chinese electric buses. Following a successful technology transfer and the licensing of system-level technology from Ceres to Weichai Power, the combined team produced a first prototype 30kW SteelCell Solid Oxide Fuel Cell range extender system, which met the required technical performance criteria, for demonstration in an electric city bus utilising widely available compressed natural gas fuel. This marked the completion of the initial joint development agreement between Ceres and Weichai, the first step in the collaboration first announced in May 2018, Ceres said. 'Ceres and Weichai are now focused on developing the next stage system to go on bus field trials in 2020,' the company said. 'Following these field trials, Weichai and Ceres intend to establish a fuel cell manufacturing joint venture in Shandong Province in 2020, China to manufacture SteelCellĀ® SOFC systems.'
