15th Bruges Workshop in Fuel Cell Systems

Dates: 21st and 22nd June 2022

Location: Novotel, Brugge Centrum


The current workshop will be the fifteenth in the series that started off with the Large SOFC project in 2008.

As usual we are looking at fuel cell systems – somewhat with an emphasis on solid oxide – but not exclusively so. As time goes by, interests broaden and in the past we have also had MCFC and PEFC technology on board, including SOFC applications for aircraft.

Nevertheless, the common theme is fuel cell systems and their components. One of the main reasons being that involvement of companies manufacturing and delivering system Balance of Plant is low in the fuel cell scene and we want to offer a platform for exchanging information and experiences between the system integrators, operators, and BoP suppliers.

We had to skip workshop #13 in 2020 due to Covid, and conducted #14 in 2021 online. Now we return on site.

This time we want to focus again on system components (Balance of Plant, BoP) and practical experiences with system operation. This will also include electrolysis, as this is becoming an increasing field of interest with a lot of synergies and common interests/insights.

Presentations will take about 20 minutes with an added 10 minutes for questions and discussions.

The evening programme will consist of a walk through town or a museum visit (t.b.c. and depending on the weather), followed by a traditional Flemish dinner in a nearby restaurant. Anyone arriving before 19:00 h on the Monday is welcome to join for  a stroll through town and a visit to a 100-Belgian-beers pub.
