HPac Product Achieves CE Certification
ITM Power, the energy storage and clean fuel company is pleased to announce the achievement of CE certification of its HPac electrolyser product.
A CE mark is a mandatory conformance mark for products placed on the market in the European Economic Area. As such, achievement is an essential element of the Company's commercial drive, enabling commercial sales within the EU and is a significant milestone for the Company. CE conformance certifies that a product has met EU consumer safety, health and environmental requirements. In the case of HPac, CE requires conformance with the Pressure Equipment, EMC and Machinery Directives.
HPac is the largest of the four electrolyser products launched at the Hannover Messe in April 2010. The process of generating evidence of compliance has involved a significant amount of learning for both ITM Power and the Notified Bodies involved. The Company is now equipped with a framework via which future certification endeavours can be prosecuted efficiently.
Dr. Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power, commented: "CE certification for HPac is a huge achievement for ITM Power. It has been the focus of a hard drive for the Company and I am delighted that we can evidence conformity. The experience has been tremendously valuable and will enable us to hone future design and certification activities. We look forward to the commercial launch of HPac at the Hannover Messe in April this year."
