Hyzon Motors unveils new hydrogen storage system to half development costs

Hyzon Motors has today (July 22) unveiled a new onboard hydrogen storage system to reduce both the weight and manufacturing cost of commercial vehicles powered by the company’s hydrogen fuel cells.

According to the vehicle manufacturer, the patent-pending onboard storage system technology integrates lightweight composite materials with the system’s metal frame – holding potential to reduce the systems overall weight by 43% and system costs by 52%.

In addition to reduce the weight and costs, the new system can also be configured to hold varying numbers of hydrogen tanks. The smallest version can hold five to seven tanks, and a separate version can hold ten tanks, appropriate for trucks driving longer distances.

On the development, Craig Knight CEO of Hyzon, said, “Hyzon is committed to continuous innovation in our zero-emission commercial vehicles, down to ever details, enabling our customers to make the switch to hydrogen from diesel without compromise.
