Workpackage: WP4 “System integration”

This visit finalised the secondment of Dr Lototskyy to FESB (first part committed during 08–23 September, 2019).

During the visit, Dr Lototskyy discussed with FESB team members about the ways of optimisation of BoP in fuel cell power modules for heavy-duty utility vehicles (including the integration of MH H2 storage system), taking into account results of the on-board tests of forklift fuel cell power module carried out during the last secondment of Prof Tolj to UWC (16 November – 07 December, 2019). The issues related to regeneration of the MH material passivated during the operation of MH H2 storage system have been considered as well.

Dr Lototskyy and Prof Tolj also worked on the finalising of HYDRIDE4MOBILITY periodic technical report, as well as wrote a research article to be submitted to special issue of International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, on the basis of their joint presentation at the International Symposium on Materials for Energy Storage and Conversion (mESC-IS2019; Akyaka, Mulga, Turkey; 11-13 September 2019).
