Hyzon Motors Unveils All-New Hydrogen Storage System Expected To Cut Development Costs In Half August 02 (2021

(2021 Composites Market Update 31

Hyzon Motors Inc., a leading global supplier of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell-powered commercial vehicles, appraised that it has developed new onboard hydrogen storage system technology capable of reducing the weight and manufacturing cost of commercial vehicles powered by Hyzon’s hydrogen fuel cells.

The new patent-pending onboard hydrogen storage system technology integrates lightweight composite materials with the system’s metal frame. It has the potential to reduce the overall weight of the system by 43%, storage system costs by 52% and the required manufacturing component count by 75%, based on a single-rack system with the capacity to store five hydrogen cylinders.

In addition to reducing the weight and costs, the storage system can be configured to hold varying number of hydrogen tanks. The smallest version can hold five tanks, and can be extended to seven tanks because of its modular design. A separate version can hold ten tanks, appropriate for trucks driving longer distances. While these two options are mounted behind the cab, a third storage system allows for an additional two tanks to be mounted to each side of the truck, extending the vehicle’s range without diminishing the size of the trailer.

The development of this technology was a cross-Atlantic collaboration between Hyzon Europe and Hyzon US, with the company planning to produce this new system in both its Rochester, NY, and Groningen, Netherlands, facilities. The technology will be implemented in Hyzon’s vehicles world-wide.
