Designed to meet the duty-cycle performances and packaging requirements of medium- and heavy-duty truck and buses, H2 View understands the technology is available in 15kW single and 270kW dual modules.
The company has said that Scania in Europe and Daimler Trucks North America will collaborate with Cummins to develop and integrate the fuel cell systems into demonstrator vehicles.
In April (2022), it was revealed that Scania would work with Cummins to develop 20 hydrogen fuel cell-electric trucks. Additionally, in May (2022), Daimler announced it would integrate the fourth-generation fuel cell powertrains into Freightliner Cascadia trucks.
According to Cummins, the systems use variable pressure technology to provide higher power density, power nodes, and operating temperature for easier system integration into vehicles.
“We know our customers have diverse needs and complicated duty cycles to support, which is why we focus on continued innovation and improvement,” said Amy Adams, Vice-President of Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Technologies at Cummins. “We’re developing hydrogen fuel cell technology that demonstrates the capacity and flexibility to meet or exceed the power needs for on-highway commercial vehicles – proving hydrogen as a viable solution to decarbonise the economy.”
Cummins announced it was also set to reveal its medium-duty hydrogen internal combustion engine (ICE) powered truck concept at IAA Transportation.
