Kiwa is one of Europe’s leading parties in this area. We assist you, as a manufacturer in the fuel cell business, to get safe and certified products both for hydrogen feeded power back-up systems and natural gas or LPG fed HP (combined heat and power) systems.

If required our services can already start during your product development to minimise cost and optimise the development process. Utilisation of fuel cells in stationary, portable and mobile applications is the key to secure a successful future hydrogen economy. Kiwa is able to test your fuel cells according to the regulations IEC 62282 and EN 50465.

Kiwa can provide you the following services:

  • Safety and certification consultancy;
  • CE certification of stationary fuel cell systems and hydrogen generators;
  • Certification for the Gas Appliance Regulation and Pressure Equipment Directive;
  • Product certification of mobile fuel cell applications (in nearly markets);
  • Product certification of portable fuel cell systems;
  • Test and certify according to IEC 62282;
  • Test and certify according to EN 50465.

In addition we are actively involved in standardisation work regarding fuel cell systems. Naturally, you will directly profit from this activity by being informed on the latest developments.

Mini-and micro-Combined Heat & Power (mCHP) and new Distributed Generation (DG) technologies at small scales are of increasing political and public interest and we are involved at many levels including testing and certification of individual technologies. Many new products are emerging based on a variety of prime movers, including low-and high temperature fuel cells, gas engines, micro-turbines and Stirling engines. Each system must show compliance to the relevant European directives before you can sell it on the European market of even put into service.

If you wish to launch your fuel cells on the European market, you are compelled to test and certify according to the regulations IEC 62282 and EN 50465. If you deal with international market outside of the EU, we can usually provide you with the necessary certification there as well. Let us be your only stop in the world of testing and certification.

You can ask for a quotation or information either by phone or e-mail. We will set up a plan according to your requirements. After approval of the quotation by both parties the actual test work starts. A certificate will be sent to you when all the test work has been performed successfully and you have entered into a surveillance agreement with Kiwa.
