Hyzon hydrogen storage for H2 trucks: by half lighter & cheaper-hydrogen

Hyzon Motors, a leading global provider of emission-free commitment vehicles with fuel cell drive, has developed a new integrated hydrogen storage system technology, which should significantly reduce the weight and manufacturing cost of commercial vehicles with hydrogen fuel cells from Hyzon. The new patent-pending hydrogen storage technology integrates a current message, slight composites in the metal frame of the system. Innovation has the potential to reduce the total weight of the system by 43 percent, the cost of the storage system by 52 percent and the number of manufacturing components by 75 percent, based on a single-rack system with five hydrogen cycles.

In addition to reducing weight and cost, the storage system can be configured to integrate many hydrogen tanks differently. The smallest version comprises five tanks and can be extended to seven tanks due to their modular structure. A separate version can even take ten tanks. This version is intended for trucks that drive over longer distances. The new technology has already been installed in pilot trucks in Europe and is expected to be used from the fourth quarter of 2021 in all vehicles.

The development of this technology was the company, according to the company, a Atlantic cooperation between Hyzon Europe and Hyzon US, where the manufacturer is planning to produce this new system in both its facilities in Rochester, NY, as well as in Groningen, Netherlands, and to build in its vehicles. Hyzon also expects to license the new system to other commercial vehicle manufacturers. As part of the Hyzon Zero Carbon Alliance, a global consortium of companies operating along the hydrogen value chain, Hyzon wants to provide additional original equipment (OEMs) access to the new technology.

“Hyzon is committed to the smallest detail for continuous innovation in our emission-free commercial vehicles so that our customers can be uncompromisingly from diesel fuel to hydrogen,” says Craig Knight, CEO of Hyzon. After years of research and development together with partners, the new storage technology optimizes the production costs of hydrogen-powered commercial vehicles from Hyzon, while at the same time reduces the total weight and increased mileage. “This makes Hyzon vehicles an even more attractive alternative to heavy vehicles with internal combustion engines,” says Knight.

  1. Turns after a first step towards structural tank, or. Structural memory. The high stability of the H2 tanks is used to replace certain supporting parts of the surrounding structure. There will be a lot, V.a. For ships and aircraft. Everything you can see as a pipe can also save. It almost urges that the hulls of a catamaran could also be hydrogen tanks.
    If the mentioned maximum 10 tanks were filled with 700 bar, this is well above 1’000 km range.
    A similar concept is also available for batteries (“structural battery”) by no longer carrying the batteries separately, but into the structure, or. Body is installed.

  2. Again no information on weight and price – seemingly you do not want to call numbers so that none can recall the H2 trucks in terms of weight and price compared to the purely battery electrical trucks.

    As long as the H2 faction continues to “secretary” operate, as long as I do not trust it over the way.

  3. Cute joyful. The weight of the vehicles could be reduced. Nice, but how does it look like in the muddy to the already available E-trucks, or. Usual combustion trucks?

  4. An interesting info for the H2 fans.

    Report: Hyundai builds range of hydrogen electric vehicles.

    Specifically, Hyundai is preparing three more models to the report: a hydrogen version of the new Vans Staria (article image) and the larger Vans Solati as well of the overland bus Universe. With the new vehicles, the company wanted to have the world’s largest range of hydrogen vehicles.

    The Universe should be more than the currently 474 kilometers range per tank filling of the Elec City Fuel Cell Bus offer, this in particular a larger battery provided.

    Weird – The range should not be achieved alone by larger H2 tanks (which allegedly so simple scalability at H2 vehicles) can be achieved, but by a larger battery.

    Apparently the highly praised scalability causes space problems (or is the high price?) To their limit and now batteries should help from the misery – an indirect praise from the H2 faction
