Losing weight is often a new year’s resolution but in Yorkshire they are about to get fat when it comes to energy.

The FAT in this case stands for “factory acceptance testing” of two new power to gas fuel units. The testing is part of a plan to bring the unit in Sheffield up to 1 MW generating capacity.

The bays will allow up to three 20 foot containers of energy generation equipment to be tested at the same time.

ITM Power who own the facility, specialise in electrolysers and hydrogen fuel cell products.

FAT is a vital part of the manufacturing process before the units can be tested in a commercial environment.
