Pioneering microtubular solid oxide fuel cell expertise at Adelan

News >>> Dr Gary Saunders joins Adelan

Adelan continues expansion with key engineering team appointment: Chief Fuel Cell Engineer.

Posted 10 May 2019

Birmingham-based microtubular solid oxide fuel cell pioneers Adelan Ltd have expanded their team by naming Dr Gary Saunders as the company’s Chief Fuel Cell Engineer.

A chemist with close to three decades’ of experience in the energy industry, Saunders joins Adelan after 16 years at Rolls Royce, where he held the position of Engineering Director at Rolls-Royce Fuel Cell Systems. Previously he worked at Shell, before completing his PhD at the University of Birmingham.

Commenting on the appointment, Adelan CEO Dr Michaela Kendall said: “We’re delighted to welcome Gary as the newest member of our expanding team. Bringing his vast experience into play, Gary will support Adelan’s on-going commercialisation programme by designing our system for manufacturing, and helping to reduce the production costs of our new products.”

Saunders added: “Fuel cell energy technology has the potential to positively impact the lives of millions of people around the world and I relish the opportunity to work with Adelan to achieve that goal. Their ground-breaking microtubular SOFC technology offers a new dynamic to the roll out of fuel cell energy systems and emergence of the hydrogen economy.”

Saunders obtained his PhD at the University of Birmingham studying hydrocarbon fuel reactions in microtubular SOFCs. Since then he has spent decades working on SOFC technology and new product development at Rolls Royce and in a joint venture with LG, the South Korea multinational corporation.

Saunders joins Adelan in the wake of its recent move to new, larger premises as the company rapidly grows to accommodate the anticipated surge in demand for its power dense and scalable fuel cell designs.
