Nano coated interconnects for SOFC (NaCoSOFC)
Paper i proceeding, 2013
The NaCoSOFC project is focused on the development of nano coatings for SOFC interconnects. The project is sponsored by the Nordic Top Level Research Initiative and has four project partners: Sandvik Materials Technology which is producing coated interconnects, Chalmers University of Technology and the University of Oslo that characterize samples with respect to e.g. corrosion, Cr evaporation and ASR as well as Topsoe Fuel Cell that is testing the developed interconnects in its stacks. The developed coatings are based on a combination of Co with RE elements and exhibit high corrosion resistance, 10 fold decrease in Cr evaporation and ASR values that are approximately 50% of the uncoated material.
