1,600 fuel cell electric trucks set to revolutionise the green hydrogen mobility ecosystem in Switzerland will be equipped by Faurecia technology.
H2 View revealed in September that these heavy-duty Hyundai H2 Xcient fuel cell trucks will be brought to the market over the next five years by Hyundai Hydrogen Mobility – the joint venture between Hyundai Motor Company and Swiss hydrogen company H2 Energy.
The venture will then offer these trucks in a specially designed green ecosystem to the members of association H2 Mobility Switzerland, as well as to other transport and logistics companies promoting hydrogen mobility in Switzerland.
Automotive technology company Faurecia today said it has been awarded the contract to supply the entire hydrogen storage system, including 10,000 hydrogen tanks, for the 1,600 trucks.
Patrick Koller, CEO of Faurecia, said, “Fuel cell electric vehicle technology will become significant in the powertrain mix in the next 10 to 15 years, in particular for commercial vehicles.”
“Faurecia is investing significant resources in optimising the potential of this technology and creating the best-in class ecosystem to accelerate its deployment.”
“This award, along with the joint venture we have created with Michelin to offer a unique range of hydrogen fuel cell systems, is a major step in our commitment to become the leader in fuel cell systems.”
