The three 12 months £30 million ($39 million) contract features a world non-exclusive license to fabricate Ceres’ stable oxide gas cell stacks with expertise switch and joint improvement, in addition to agreed royalty streams upon the graduation of manufacturing and industrial sale of 5kW SteelCell stacks.
The contracts with Doosan Corporation are price £6 million ($7.eight million) to Ceres for the long-term testing, gross sales and integration of stacks and can construct on the collaboration and licensing settlement signed with Doosan Corporation in July 2019 for a industrial CHP system concentrating on the industrial constructing market.
Fuel cell stacks manufactured by Doosan will initially meet its personal product demand for CHP and the deliberate energy plant product line. In time, manufacturing might broaden to fulfill world demand for Ceres’ stacks in a number of purposes.
Doosan’s gas cell enterprise designs, engineers and manufactures gas cells for each industrial and industrial purposes. Doosan will utilise Ceres’ SteelCell stable oxide gas cell expertise, to allow excessive effectivity and value aggressive merchandise that may ship clear, safe and scalable vitality programs.
South Korea has progressive targets that encourage the deployment of hydrogen and gas cell expertise (16GW by 2040). Its Green New Deal has dedicated KRW73.four trillion ($60 billion) as a part of a wider nationwide technique to deal with local weather change, assist business and jobs, and to interrupt the economic system’s dependence on carbon.
Doosan is dedicated to creating and supplying environment friendly clear stationary gas cells to fulfill the South Korean authorities renewable vitality plans and to form the hydrogen future.

Mr. Hyunsoo Dong, vice chairman of Doosan Corporation commented: “By partnering with Ceres Power, Doosan will broaden its product portfolio and strengthen its place because the chief within the gas cell business. We are excited to broaden on our present collaboration to construct a world main SOFC stack mass manufacturing centre and to create a robust gas cell business ecosystem in Korea and past.”
Phil Caldwell, CEO of Ceres Power mentioned: “We are completely delighted to welcome Doosan as a strategic manufacturing companion and to broaden our relationship to focus on utility scale programs. Doosan has an enviable track-record in commercialising gas cell expertise. Our success is measured by our companions’ success and that is additional validation of our asset-light, licensing enterprise mannequin that permits the world’s most progressive corporations to undertake our expertise at scale and velocity.”
