Arcola Energy is a leading specialist in hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

WARWICK MANUFACTURING GROUP

Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) is an academic department of the University of Warwick and host to one of the Centres for the High Value Manufacturing Catapult. WMG specialise in power-train development and particularly battery energy storage, including a pilot battery manufacturing line.

Arcola has included WMG in 3 collaborative projects around fuel cells, supporting them in developing fuel cell expertise and rawing on their experience in manufacturing processes and electric powertrain testing. As a result of the experience gained in our first project WMG are now working on further fuel cell projects with vehicle OEMs and other UK fuel cell developers.

We are now working with them as part of our collaborative project with bus manufacturer ADL to support the ongoing selection and integration of battery systems for fuel cell electric powertrains.

We have access to their expertise in developing an automotive battery manufacturing pilot line as well as modelling and piloting of automation systems. In turn we are contributing to their research knowledge of the emerging automotive fuel cell sector and the manufacturing requirements for these systems.
