Nuvera Fuel Cells has today launched its Nuvera® E-45 fuel cell engine.
Suitable for commercial medium- and heavy-duty vehicle applications, the E-45 includes its own fully integrated compressor and patented control logic for optimised operation.
Working with Hyster-Yale Group and other project partners, Nuvera has already incorporated its E-45 engines into a Hyster top-loading container handler. The handler will begin operation at the Port of Los Angeles later this year.
Nuvera is also working on development of a Chinese fuel cell transit bus platform.
Matt Weig, Fuel Cell Engine Product Manager at Nuvera, said, “Our strategy for the E-45 fuel cell engine was to design a system that meets the needs of multiple mobility markets, and easily incorporates into existing electric vehicle platforms, taking maximum advantage of our unique core stack technology.”
The E-45 engine are currently being produced at the company’s headquarters in Billerica, Massachusetts, and will soon also be manufactured in China.
