MAN joins forces with Nuremberg universities on Hydrogen Campus

University academics and students will, for the first time, run a laboratory and test rigs for researching hydrogen technology jointly with a vehicle manufacturer’s developers directly at its plant premises.

MAN Truck & Bus, Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and Nuremberg Tech (THN) have signed a cooperation agreement on the research and development of hydrogen-based vehicle drive systems.

The work will take place at a Hydrogen Campus located at MAN’s plant in Nuremberg, Germany, and will span the entire value chain of this type of drive system: from eco-friendly hydrogen generation through distribution, infrastructure and converting it back into electricity all the way to technology application in customer vehicles.

FAU will focus on basic research, THN will use its strengths in the field of applied research, while commercial vehicle manufacturer MAN will ensure that the research findings are integrated into the production of hydrogen fuel cells and combustion engines installed in trucks and buses.
