The Czech Engineering Test Institute (SZÚ) signed a Memorandum of Understanding and Mutual Cooperation with the Korean Hydrogen Fuel Cell Innovation Centre (WFRIC) and the Czech Hydrogen Technology Platform (HYTEP). The parties committed to strengthen and develop mutual relations, cooperation and sharing of resources and knowledge in the field of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.

“I strongly believe that this agreement opens up new opportunities for synergies and will strengthen our competitiveness and future activities in the dynamic environment of our own industry – the TIC sector (testing – inspection – certification),” said Tomáš Hruška, Director General of the SZÚ. “By sharing know-how at this level, I expect to create innovative solutions that will lead to further progress in the field of hydrogen technology.”

”Hydrogen technologies are a new sector generating high added value,” added Aleš Doucek, Chairman of the Board of the Czech Hydrogen Technology Platform (HYTEP). “The strategic link between the actors from the Czech Republic and South Korea will lead to improved awareness and deployment of hydrogen technologies, especially fuel cells in the Czech Republic. The area of technical standardisation is a key enabler for the mass deployment of hydrogen technologies, we perceive that our sector is just at the beginning and there is still a long way to go before we see the full commercialisation that we have seen with other low-emission technologies.”
