Toyota unveils new compact hydrogen fuel cell system module

Strengthening its role as a fuel cell system supplier, Toyota has today (26th Feb) unveiled a new compact hydrogen fuel cell system module that could be on the market from Spring 2021.

Suitable for multiple many different applications, including mobility and stationary generators, the module has a wide (400-750V) voltage range and can be connected directly to an existing electric device equipped with a motor, battery and inverter.

The modular concept eliminates the need for drawing up designs for individual installation and connection of fuel cell system-related components. It also integrates and reduces the number of points where the module has to be connected to a device, allowing for easy installation.

Talking about the safety of its innovation, Toyota said, “Toyota has used its experience developing electrified vehicles to apply rigorous measures to ensure the safe use of hydrogen fuel and high voltages. These are based on a basic approach of ensuring hydrogen does not leak, and, in the unlikely event a leak does occur, ensuring immediate detection and stoppage.”
