News >>> UK fuel cell pioneer plans for growth with expanded site

Reflecting exciting market developments, Adelan Ltd – the UK’s oldest fuel cell firm – has relocated to larger premises. Pioneers of microtubular solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) technology, Adelan is rapidly expanding to accommodate anticipated growth in demand for its clean, quiet and robust fuel cell designs.

Posted 5 Sep 2018

Micro-tubular SOFC technology was first developed by the Adelan team more than 30 years ago. Now, increasing commercial uptake of fuel cell technology in regions such as China and Europe has prompted the move to a larger site as the company builds on its capabilities ahead of a widely forecast leap in their application and use.

First founded in the UK’s West Midlands, Adelan’s new offices are at the Weekin Works in Birmingham, where the company is proud to continue to foster and develop the city’s long legacy of home grown engineering talent and ground-breaking technological discoveries.

Adelan’s patented and scalable technology gives the fuel cell unprecedented flexibility, allowing the system to run on a range of commonly available fuels such as LPG, natural gas or propane/butane mix as well as hydrogen. It achieves this without the need for the complex and costly reforming technology required in many other types of fuel cell technology if they are to run on fuels other than hydrogen. As a result, though Adelan fuel cells can also run on hydrogen, they additionally offer considerable operational flexibility and ease of use benefits whilst retaining a small, compact and lightweight foot print.

Commenting on the move to the new site, Adelan CEO, Dr Michaela Kendall, said: “Growing awareness of vital public health issues such as climate change and urban air quality are spurring renewed interest in environmentally-friendly alternatives to current energy production methods. The inherent benefits of micro-tubular SOFC technology mean that clean, safe and quiet energy is now reliably available for use across a vast array of stand-alone, remote or mobile applications. From battery vehicle range extenders through to resilient UPS systems and heat and power for remote and off-grid sites, fuel cell technology developed right here in Birmingham offers a solution to a host of worldwide challenges. By expanding to larger premises now, Adelan hopes to capitalise on a very real opportunity for the UK and Birmingham to become world leaders in a huge global market for fuel cell technology.”
