Plastic Omnium supplies German retrofitter with fuel cell systems for hydrogen trucks


“We are pleased to work with EFA-S on this innovative commercial vehicle concept with fuel cell electric drive,” said Ewald Wahlmueller, Managing Director, Plastic Omnium Wels (Austria). “Our fuel cell technology will enable the truck to benefit from a driving range of 500 kilometres with only 3-minute refill time, while contributing to EFA-S’ ambitions in terms of clean and sustainable mobility.” Bastian Beutel, Managing Director of EFA-S, added: “Commercial vehicles with electric drive are key if we really want to make supply chains eco-friendly. And if it comes to larger vehicles or if a reach of at least 500 kilometres per day is necessary electric drive is not possible without fuel cell technology. Therefore, at EFA-S we are offering electric powertrains using hydrogen and fuel cell as well as pure battery powered vehicles.”

The Plastic Omnium fuel cell system is a fully self-controlled and safe electric power source for heavy-duty applications. The system integrates hydrogen and air supply, cooling, power electronics and a control unit into a protected and qualified package with standardized interface for seamless integration into the e-powertrain of a zero-emission vehicle.
