Intelligent Energy and Suzuki Motor Corporation have established a ready-to-scale production plant for its fuel cell systems in Yokohama, Japan.
SMILE FC, the manufacturing centre, will supply fuel cell stacks for integration with Suzuki vehicles. The production line will build upon Intelligent Energy’s semi-automated fuel cell production technology.
This venture will aim at accelerating the commercialisation of Suzuki’s fuel cell vehicles, particularly scooters.
Intelligent Energy is a partner of the EU co-funded Hydorgen Transport in European Cities (HyTEC) project which aims at deploying 4O low-carbon vehicles, including hydrogen fuel cell scooters and create two large deployment centres in London and Copenhagen.
