New Delhi: Swedish truck manufacturing division of Volvo, Volvo Vehicles showcased its new zero-emission vans. These vans solely emit water vapor, produce their very own electrical energy on board and have a variety of as much as 1 000 km. In response to the truck producer, it is doable with gas cells powered by hydrogen, and it has began to check autos utilizing this new expertise.

The corporate already in the present day affords battery-electric vans and vans that run on renewable fuels, comparable to biogas. Within the second half of this decade, a 3rd CO2-neutral choice shall be added to its product portfolio – gas cell electrical vans powered by hydrogen, it mentioned.

“We’ve got been growing this expertise for some years now, and it feels nice to see the primary vans efficiently working on the check observe. The mixture of battery-electric and gas cell electrical will allow our clients to utterly remove CO2 exhaust emissions from their vans, regardless of transport assignments,” saidRoger Alm, President, Volvo Vehicles.

The gas cell electrical vans could have an operational vary akin to many diesel vans – as much as 1000 km – and a refueling time of lower than quarter-hour. The entire weight might be round 65 tons and even increased, and the 2 gas cells have the capability to generate 300 kW of electrical energy onboard.

In these autos, the gas cell generates its personal electrical energy from the hydrogen onboard as a substitute of being charged from an exterior supply. The one byproduct emitted is water vapor.

The gas cells shall be provided by cell centric – the three way partnership between the Volvo Group and Daimler Truck AG. Cellcentric will construct one among Europe’s largest sequence manufacturing services for gas cells, specifically developed for heavy autos.

Buyer pilots will begin just a few years from now and commercialization is deliberate for the latter a part of this decade, Volvo Vehicles said.

“Hydrogen-powered gas cell electrical vans shall be particularly appropriate for lengthy distances and heavy, energy-demanding assignments. They may be an choice in international locations the place battery charging prospects are restricted,” added Roger Alm.

The outcomes of the challenge will present essential insights into the probabilities supplied by hydrogen and gas cells as Volvo CE continues analysis for its future product improvement programmes, the corporate mentioned.
