Ballard is present in Europe, North America and China with dedicated service teams to support the commercial deployment of fuel cell vehicle fleets.
Ballard will provide a total of eight FCmove™-HD fuel cell modules, eight DCDC converters, two 100 kilogram hydrogen storage systems and two radiators – each generating 70 kilowatts (kW) of power – with 4 modules to be installed in each truck. Launched in 2019, FCmove™-HD is Ballard’s 8th generation high performance fuel cell module, offering attractive customer value based on high reliability, simplified system integration and optimized operating parameters.
Rob Campbell, Ballard Chief Commercial Officer said, “The tractor-trailer trucks being used in the AZETEC project are the first Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles – or FCEVs – of this size and capacity to be built and tested anywhere globally. We are delighted to expand Ballard’s participation in FCEV truck trials across a growing range of sizes and classes, as we demonstrate the compelling value proposition that fuel cells offer for Heavy and Medium Duty Motive applications requiring long range, rapid refueling, heavy payloads and route flexibility.”
