CEA is a Research institue having experience in development of BPs and stacks as well as stack testing, component characterisation and cost analysis. CEA have access to hydrogen and fuel cell labs and provide test infrastructure to the project.
During the last years, BORIT has acquired a solid knowledge in both the design and manufacturing of these plates. This will be required in the project for the design requirements of the hydroforming dies that will be used to form the thin metal sheets.
IC business concept is to introduce Lean production into the PVD industry. Impact coatings offer turn-key high efficient production PVD deposition system including the deposition process.
CID specializes in generating and transferring knowledge and technology in the areas of materials, surfaces and energy, covering the whole value chain, from basic and applied electrochemistry of materials, characterization of surface properties and design of tailor-made treatments to the industrial scale-up and applied electrical engineering. CID will provide its know-how on fuel cells, metallic and sol-gel coatings and catalysts and corrosion characterization.
SymbioFCell designs and produces both PEM-based Hydrogen Fuel Cell Range Extenders (5 kW to 20 kW), and Full Power Hydrogen Fuel Cell Systems (80 kW to 300 kW). Its core expertise is in the integration of these complex components to build solutions tailored to each vehicle.
MATEIS the laboratory of INSA Lyon will provide its expertise in the characterization of coatings and expertise in corrosion. At least one PhD will be dedicated to the COBRA project.
