Description of Activities

Adelan develops and manufactures Solid Oxide Fuel Cells (SOFCs) for portable applications.

The Adelan fuel cell is based on a rapid heating tubular design. Its main advantages are the extremely low production costs per unit and unique cell design.

This design solves two problems:

•        It makes the cell highly resistant to cracking.

•        Small sections of the tube i.e. the electrodes - can be heated leaving the ends of the tubes cool for the attachment of piping and sealant materials.

The versatile modular design allows scaling up of the unit to any size according to the power output required.
