New Quality Control Laboratory Manager joins the Jolt team

We are delighted to welcome Miguel Rosal as our new Quality Control laboratory Manager. Miguel has a degree in Chemistry and a master’s degree in Analytical Chemistry from the University of Barcelona. He has previously collaborated with the Electroanalysis group of the University of Barcelona, and has worked in different research centres and chemical companies, both in research and development and in a quality control laboratory.

Speaking on why he joined Jolt Solutions, Miguel said “I joined Jolt Solutions because the time has come for change and to firmly commit to decarbonization and the energy transition.

I believe that green hydrogen offers us a wide range of possibilities for this to happen, both as a fuel and a way to store energy, as well as its use in industrial processes. I want to contribute my grain of sand, together with Jolt Solutions, for a more sustainable world.”

Successful manufacture of 1.5m dia electrodes for customer trial

This week Jolt has been manufacturing 1.5m diameter electrodes for a customer trial, showing that the coating process is fast, flexible and scalable.

During the trial we created 35 x 1.5M anodes for a 500KW alkaline electrolyser demonstrator. As our factory is not due for completion until Q2, we were able to relocate Jolt equipment to another site in the space of a few hours to create the samples.

Production took less than 24 hrs and the resulting anodes outperformed previous smaller scale samples, demonstrating that the large scale process is stable and repeatable.

Global Sales Director, Wayne Thornhill stated, “We’re excited by the results of the trial which allow us to confidently reach out to other electrode customers ready for full production in our new factory from Q2.”

Jolt joins the Berlin Electrolyser Conference to present their latest coatings advancements.

This month Jolt CTO Alberto Bucci presented at the Berlin Electrolyser Conference (BEC), the prestigious international technical summit focusing on the development, manufacturing, deployment and industrial integration of next generation electrolysers.

The BEC, which took place on 6-7 December, is an opportunity for companies to gather, present and discuss technical advancements and challenges in the field of Hydrogen electrolysis. It as attended by company representatives across the field with technical backgrounds such as CTO, R&D and technical forced commercial staff. Alberto presented advancements in Jolt’s innovative coatings, including their performance and stability, as well as an update on the company.

“Being in Berlin last month for the BEC was truly incredible for many reasons, most notably the exceptionally high level of its participants: True industry experts, professionals, and key opinion leaders shared knowledge, uncertainties, and visions about the world of hydrogen in a transparent and honest manner.

Being there as the CTO of Jolt made me feel honored both as an entrepreneur and as a chemist, as I could engage in discussions about science at very high levels. I want to express my gratitude to the organization and everyone who attended the BEC.”

Jolt revolutionary electrode technology showcased in HyDEP srl AEM electrolyzer stacks.

HyDEP (Hydrogen for Development of Environmental Projects) has been around for 25 years, and as such has an in-depth knowledge of the market, the companies, the component suppliers and the industry. Their main activities cover:

  • ENGINEERING – with experience in the field of electrolysis and the deep knowledge of the sector, HyDEP srl is an ideal partner to design and implement electrolyser stacks.
  • PROTOTYPING – HyDEP have developed the base technology for a number of well known electrolyser companies.
  • CERTIFICATION – They use very high quality and safety standards, ATEX and PED, to certify and qualify system components.

Jolt Activated anodes were selected by HyDEP because they represent the best electrodes on the market, boasting increased durability, higher efficiency and customers benefit from reduced costs. The HyDEP srl stack design is being adopted by many major players in the field and Jolt’s new electrode coating technology will be critical in achieving the growth required in electrolysis by 2050.

Jolt’s technology shows a marked improvement in both electrode performance and durability… Their method is quick and easy to scale making them a fantastic partner for the future
