Overall project description

VOLUMETRIQ is a Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Undertaking project funded under the call FCH-01.2-2014 on “Cell and stack components, stack and system manufacturing technologies and quality assurance”. It will demonstrate operational OEM stack performance requirements for ElringKlinger’s automotive PEM fuel cell platform, with production readiness via validated volume capable manufacturing processes and quality control systems for both automotive fuel cell stack platform, and for major constituent cell components.  Stack components will be manufactured, involving improvement of existing methods and enhancement through automated manufacturing processes and tests to achieve robust volume yield and cost delivery.
The project will validate a complete “at scale” stack production package which will be overseen by the automotive OEMs, BMW and Daimler

This project has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 671465. This Joint Undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The principal aim of VOLUMETRIQ, a commercialisation focused project, is to develop an EU-centric supply base for automotive PEM fuel cell stacks and their key components with volume manufacturing capability and embedded quality control at its heart.

The stack and components are based on automotive PEM fuel cell technology which is presently TRL5 for component manufacturing approach and concepts. The project will deliver a TRL7 stack and component design, at TRL7 manufacturing maturity, a consistent stack power of 90 kW, and demonstrated cost reduction, via an EU supply base that is consistent with the JU 2020 system targets for performance and cost.
