PowerCell Sweden has today (13th Jan) received an order for a MS-100 fuel cell system from a European construction manufacturer.
To be delivered in the first half of this year, the system will be used for tests to see how fuel cells and hydrogen can be used for an electrification of a wheel loader.
“Various types of construction equipment almost always run-on diesel and therefore account for large emissions of carbon dioxide and harmful substances such as soot and nitrogen oxides,” said Andreas Bodén, Director Sales & Marketing.
“An electrification based on fuel cells and hydrogen is a highly attractive alternative for these types of vehicles as it offers the same driveability and up-time as conventional drivetrains with no other emissions than water.”
In April last year, PowerCell launched new strategic priorities which, among other things, include an increased focus on off-road vehicles such as construction equipment.
