TAZ on ZBT opened on 15.09.08


It is unique in Europe and was by many industry partners who develop fuel cell products, repeatedly suggested: NRW-Minister of Economic Affairs Christa Thoben opened on 15 September 2008 nach nur eineinhalbj├Ąhriger Bauzeit das TAZ, das Test-, Applikations- und Assemblierungszentrum am Zentrum f├╝r BrennstoffzellenTechnik (ZBT gGmbH) in Duisburg. September 2008 after only eineinhalbj├Ąhriger TAZ the construction period, the testing, application and Assemblierungszentrum at the Center for fuel cell technology in Duisburg.

“To both fuel cell components as well as overall systems rapidly to the market, various fields of activity around the fuel cell bundled,” said the minister. The working fields of the new test and application center include production engineering, installation, commissioning, testing and evaluation of fuel cells, components and complete systems. All this with the goal of fuel cell technology economically and quality continue to develop.

“This unique pan-European offer complements the already excellent service offering North Rhine-Westphalia as a European fuel cell center. Unique is the concentration of diverse areas around the new products, “said Thoben.

With this new building project at the University of Duisburg-Essen, the strategic competence of North Rhine-Westphalia as an important energiewirtschaftliches and energietechnisches center in Germany consistently developed. Already today, the services of the ZBT by the industry in high demand. It is assumed that the institute with the help of the TAZ further long-term collaborations with industry partners will enter into to the fuel cell technologies with them to market and develop competitiveness. The establishment of a separate fuel cell production is not planned, which would be driven by the business partners with the support of the ZBT be realized.

The fuel cell and hydrogen technology on one of the promotion and development priorities of the provincial government in the energy sector. The activities of the country are under the established in 2000 “competence network fuel cell and hydrogen” the EnergyAgency.NRW organized and coordinated.

Together with the Ministry of Science, the Ministry of Economic Affairs so far over 80 projects with a total grant of 80 million euros for a total of more than 130 million euros. The ZBT since its founding member of the competence network, which is about 350 to a large extent medium-sized enterprises and research institutes. The aim is to the existing powers for the development of fuel cell systems and components as well as the production, storage and transport of hydrogen together more closely than before and new fields of competence to identify them.

Minister Thoben: “The many successes already achieved in the field of fuel cell and hydrogen technology in North Rhine-Westphalia and Germany in 2010, we want to under 18 World Hydrogen Conference in Essen present. “To meet the high expectations of this conference needs, a new project, the NRW Hydrogen HyWay of Aachen on Cologne, Dusseldorf, Duisburg and Essen to the northern Ruhr area. Under its umbrella project, over 40 new project ideas, which currently concrete form. These include infrastructure, vehicle fleets, stationary and many special applications of fuel cell and hydrogen technology.

Then 2010 not only the guests of the World Hydrogen Conference, but also the visitors of the European Capital of Culture Food fuel cell and hydrogen technology experience in North Rhine-Westphalia.
