The Fuel Cell & Electrolyser system workshop began with the Large SOFC project in 2008. This tradition continues annually, focusing on fuel cell systems, primarily solid oxide, while also encompassing technologies like MCFC and PEFC, and applications such as SOFC for aircraft. The goal is to bridge the gap between system integrators, operators, and Balance of Plant (BoP) suppliers, fostering an exchange of information and experiences.

This year’s workshop took place at the Bruges Meeting & Convention Centre from May 14th to 15th, emphasizing practical experiences with system operation, including electrolysis, which is gaining interest due to its synergies and shared insights with fuel cell technology. Additionally, the workshop focused on Power-to-X applications, particularly for shipping and aviation fuels based on solid oxide electrolysis. 

The FuelSOME project was thrilled to participate and contribute to this year’s event through the involvement of technical manager Dr. Vikrant Venkataraman. Dr. Venkataraman presented a 20-minute overview of the project and the results achieved so far, followed by a 10-minute Q&A session. You can download the full presentation by clicking here

The first day of the workshop featured a town walk and a museum visit, followed by a traditional Flemish dinner to foster communication and socialization among attendees, helping to break the ice and engage in constructive discussions.
