Our SOEC Products
To support the growing hydrogen generation market, Nexceris provides expertise and solutions for the development of Solid Oxide Electrolysis Cells (SOEC). In order to utilize as much of the electricity produced by nuclear, wind, solar, and other sources as possible, including storing that energy as hydrogen, SOEC is an important part of the Energy Plus Storage future.
Understanding the demand for these types of renewable sources, Nexceris is now developing technologies around SOEC. The research avenues in SOEC are similar to the ones for fuel cell, and the knowledge we have gained through SOFC research can be leveraged to push SOECs forward. As part of the effort Nexceris was recently awarded a project to research and produce advanced coatings to enhance the durability of SOEC stacks.
Here are some results from our R&D work in this area:
- Screened over 50 electrodes at part of development
- Cells achieve -2.0 A/cm2 @ 1.4 V and 800 °C and 0.8 W/cm° @ 0.7 V
- Performance is further increased with thinner electrolyte or different cell platforms
- New SOEC electrodes exhibited excellent stability in stack testing
- ChromLok coatings on interconnects
- Stack has less than 0.4%/kh degradation
Nexceris also works with public and private sector partners to improve their SOEC technologies and allow for successful commercialization. Nexceris uses our proven LEVER process to fully understand our partners’ short and long term goals to allow for successfully execution of these projects in a cost effective and timely manner.
