The MECc concept has recently been tested for the first time and will be on show at the large international technology trade fair, Hannover Messe 2015, which kicks off today. Here, it will be on display integrated into a Fiat 500 configured with a battery pack and the methanol fuel cell range extender. It will be on show in combination with an example of the related methanol infrastructure, which is being developed and tested simultaneously in a “sister” project to MECc; Green Methanol Infrastructure (GMI). Project Manager, Jens Christian Lodberg Høj from Insero E-Mobility, provides the latest status on MECc:

- The Fiat 500 is the second vehicle equipped with the MECc system, and we have driven the first kilometres, which has shown that the system is working. Currently, we are removing bugs and testing all aspects of the system in order to have the prototype ready for fully functional testing by a professional user in the autumn of 2015.

You can meet representatives from MECc partner SerEnergy all week during the Hannover Messe, where they will be present at stand E71 in hall 27.
