Design of bipolar plates

Together with our partners and customers, we develop designs for metal and graphite bipolar plates and optimize them in terms of power density, lifetime and manufacturability.

Our scope of work includes:

  • Specification development
  • Consulting, support and benchmarking of cell components (MEA, material and coating BPP, sealing materials)
  • CAD design development of bipolar plates for mobile and stationary applications
  • CFD simulation and fluidic optimization
  • Production of test geometries for validation of cell performance
  • Support in communication with manufacturing partners
  • Construction and testing of short stacks and full stacks
