A game-changing technology for heavy-duty vehicles is about to be unveiled in Hannover, during IAA Transportation, from September 19-25. The grand unveiling will be provided by Westport Fuel Systems, at its booth located at Hall H12, Stand B70.
The technology is about hydrogen and internal combustion engines (ICEs), coming together. Its name is H2 HPDI, and its special skills are CO2 (carbon dioxide) reduction, power and torque, TCO (total cost of ownership). “All of them around a magic but real word: higher efficiency,” the company told H2 View ahead of the release.
“If you expected batteries and fuel cells as the only possible alternatives for future long-haul transportation, you have a double choice: either to avoid continuing to read or to get excited about learning more about a solution that appears to perform better than the previous ones.”
Even though the numbers of heavy-duty long haul trucks are small compared to passenger cars, the huge transportation task of tonne/km makes them a big contributor to CO2 emissions.
