According to Linde Engineering, membrane technologies are vital to efforts around the globe for establishing hydrogen infrastructure. In Europe, 11 transmission system operators are working on creating the European Hydrogen Backbone.
After the construction will be completed, the functions like R&D, test, production and sales will be installed into the new site to shape it as the full function center and one of the most important projects of ‘Hydrogen Valley in Western China’ of Chongqing.
The joint venture is expected to accelerate the affordability and availability of green hydrogen through increased technological innovation, research and development, and manufacturing capacity.
«Our research shows that, whilst the technology clearly has the potential to reduce carbon emissions, the use of hydrogen combustion engines in heavy duty applications will be limited because of the challenges with machine and fuel price, the small number of suitable applications, and the shift towa...
The ë-Jumpy Hydrogen has two complementary propulsion systems: a battery to store energy and supply electricity and a fuel cell, which converts hydrogen and oxygen in the air into electricity, water and heat. As long as it is supplied with hydrogen, this power generator works continuously.
The partnership is expected to allow the companies to dedicate means and resources to study the roll-out of heavy-duty fuel cell long-haul trucks coupled with the deployment of a network of renewable or low-carbon hydrogen refuelling stations.
The first Proterra Powered Nikola semi-trucks are expected to be produced in the fourth quarter of 2022, with Proterra delivering prototype systems to Nikola starting in the second quarter of 2022. Nikola has also signed a new LOI with Covenant Logistic Group for up to 50 zero emission trucks.
During the first phase of the cooperation, Ballard will be primarily responsible for system design relating to the fuel cell stack, while Mahle is bringing its extensive experience in the areas of thermal management, power electronics, and packaging.
«Arrival wants to invest in both commercial vehicles and buses in Southern Europe, also due to the development plans made possible by the European Union funding programmes», he told us. «This also applies to production and to the fabric of microfactories, where the vehicles will be manufactured»....
To the extent of increasing the activities in the fuel cell segment, Dominic Patzelt has been appointed new hydrogen project manager at e-troFit GmbH, specializing in innovative solutions for the electrification of used and new commercial vehicles.
Within the framework of the cooperation, Cummins will provide hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrains integrated into selected OEM partners’ heavy-duty trucks for Air Products, as Air Products begins the process of converting its global fleet of distribution vehicles.
The system has the potential to reduce the overall weight of the system by 43 percent, storage system costs by 52 percent and the required manufacturing component count by 75 percent, based on a single-rack system with capacity to store five hydrogen cylinders.
The truck is a 55-ton HyMax 450 Puller built on a Class-8 DAF truck chassis, expected to have up to 520-kilometer range with motor power up to 550 kilowatt capacity. Transport Groep Noord, the carrier providing transport for the cooperative, plans to operate the truck on specific routes in the North...
Srikanth Padmanabhan, President of the Engine Segment, commented the announcement: «We are using all new engine platforms equipped with the latest technologies to improve power density, reduce friction and improve thermal efficiency, allowing us to avoid the typical performance limitations and effic...
The HyTrucks program is a consortium of businesses that has pledged to put 1,000 hydrogen trucks and 25 hydrogen refueling stations on European roads by 2025. Hyzon Motors is already working with some major customers all over Europe to supply hydrogen-powered trucks. Two orders have been set in the ...
Gaussin has reached an agreement with iconic Italian design house Pininfarina for designing the French company’s range of road trucks. The new design is expected to cover the entire range of Gaussin trucks developed thanks to the electric, hydrogen, autonomous ready Gaussin modular skateboard
The major target of the project is to determine the appropriate drive concept according to the respective application purposes and requirements on American and European roads, with the consequence of reducing the CO2 footprint in heavy-duty transport as much as possible.
The joint service and product offering consists of commercial vehicles powered by hydrogen, customized hydrogen logistics and infrastructure, customer consulting and the creation of customer-specific holistic hydrogen roadmaps. Quantron has also received the German Innovation Award in the E-Mobility...
Zero emissions trucks, electric and hydrogen, will get at least a 50 percent discount on tolls by April 2023, under the legislation agreed by governments and members of the European Parliament. Air pollution charges for trucks must be applied where distance-based tolling is used.
