Their strengths are remarkable especially in applications which require a long lifetime. By the exchangeability of single cells for example, powerful cellular components can be retrofitted during maintenance activities (Retrofit). It could also be shown that MOD-FC allows an Up-Scaling, avoiding the usual losses. Thus MOD-FC are flexibly configurable for all power levels. In addition, water electrolyzers have already been set up, based on the stack concept with hydraulic pressing.
MOD-FC is patented in Europe and the USA, more patent applications are pending.
