Fuel Cell Testing and Certification

Fuel Cell Testing and Certification

Ensure high safety and quality standards of fuel cells through our testing and certification

A fuel cell is a critical device that can convert the chemical energy in liquid fuels into electrical energy. It is widely used in various industrial applications for power generation and transportation. The development and installation of fuel cells for use in portable and stationary applications is expected to help solve worldwide fuel-energy problems.

We play a pivotal role in your company’s development process of consumer oriented fuel cells. Our team of experts test and certify that your fuel cells comply with the IEC/EN 62282 and ANSI/CSA FC “Fuel Cell Power System” standard. We provide testing services for Europe, the United States and Canada, which are conducted in accordance with IEC/EN 62282 and other applicable standards and guidelines.

Due to our extensive knowledge of fuel cell technology we are an excellent partner for development and testing of this technology – including regulatory consulting of all safety aspects and an assessment of conformity to regulations and standards – and can guarantee you a top-quality service.

Contact our experts in order to make the testing process of your fuel cells safe and reliable!
