Elodie Pahon, a young researcher working on Giantleap and previously on its predecessor project Sapphire at the University of Franche-Comté, was awarded the prize for best Young Scientist by Hydrogen Europe Research at a ceremony organised in connection with the FCH JU Programme Review Days on November 15, 2018.
Ms. Pahon won in the category associated to the Transport pillar (one out of only three categories) for her work in diagnostics and prognostics of fuel cells, the very core topic of projects Giantleap and Sapphire.
The Giantleap project congratulates Ms. Pahon and UFC on the award!
30 months into the project, Giantleap partners met at ElringKlinger’s premises in Dettingen an der Erms, Germany, and planned how to complete the project. Continue reading “Project meeting in Dettingen an der Erms”
After two years of project, Bosch Engineering and the Giantleap Consortium can publish details of our trailer-mounted fuel-cell system for battery buses. Continue reading “Giantleap’s Fuel-Cell System is Ready”
The Giantleap project announces today the publication of one of its core reports, Control System Specification and Algorithms. This report details the novel control concepts to be installed in the Giantleap prototype and how they fit in the pre-existing fuel-cell control unit by BEG.

2 years into the project, the partners have gathered in Split, Croatia, to assess the progress and plan the last year of Giantleap. Continue reading “Project meeting M24 held in Split”
Waterstofnet, Hydrogen Europe and Hyer have published a new website with up-to-date information on demonstration of hydrogen buses in Europe.
Go to fuelcellbuses.eu for an overview of all present and future demonstration projects, and a map of where they are or will be.
Giantleap will be represented with two presentations at an international conference to be held on May 14-15 in Trondheim, Norway. The conference is organised by Trondheim’s NTNU University and has a global scope, with keynote speakers from EU, USA, China and Canada. Continue reading “Hydrogen Conference in Trondheim, Norway”
Giantleap will be represented by Ivar Halvorsen at the 2018 Annual Meeting of MoZEES, a Norwegian research group focused on zero-emission mobility gathering all main research institutions in Norway.
Ivar will be presenting the recent advances in Low-Frequency EIS for PEM Fuel-Cell Diagnostics.
One of the main features of the Giantleap project is the idea of using fuel cells to extend the range of battery buses. To do so, battery buses and range extenders must be equipped with standardised electrical, mechanical and communication interfaces. Continue reading “Interfaces for Hydrogen Range Extenders”
ElringKlinger delivered several stack modules in the Giantleap project for integration in the fuel-cell system and for bench testing. These modules are actually more than a stack of fuel cells, and include multiple sensors and an innovative passive recirculation system.
