Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC, is pleased to announce construction of a fuel cell stack production line in the Hangzhou district government of Fuyang, China. A ground-breaking ceremony was held on Dec. 17, 2019 attended by Lucien Robroek, CEO and Jon Taylor, President of Nuvera, along with Fuyang government officials.
In December 2018, Nuvera signed a cooperation agreement with the Fuyang government, located in Zhejiang province, to enable the local manufacture of Nuvera fuel cell stacks. The agreement provided incentives to Nuvera for the establishment of its production facility. The fuel cells will power zero-emissions, heavy-duty vehicles such as delivery vans and transit buses.
The combined market for fuel cell forklifts, passenger vehicles and commercial vehicles in China is expected to reach nearly 50,000 units per year in 2025 and 400,000 units per year by 2030, according to information provided by customers in China. The Nuvera site incorporates equipment for the automated manufacture of up to 5,000 fuel cell stacks per year for vehicle applications. Additional capacity can be added as demand requires.
