In November 2019, electric mobility solutions provider eCap began a partnership with fuel cell technologies company Re-Fire Technology for the joint development of cross-sector fuel cell projects.

The first milestone of this partnership was reached in May 2020 by achieving the “Approval in Principle“ through the international classification society DNV GL for a concept of maritime Re-Fire fuel cell application. The Hydrogen Electric System (H2ES) developed by eCap combines the Re-Fire fuel cell technology with the latest hydrogen and electrical components to form an innovative and environmentally friendly drive solution for shipping. The now-approved fuel cell solution can be installed on deck and encompasses cabinets for up to 440 kW power.
