Three hydrogen technologies are being developed for the Green Transport Delta – Hydrogen project: hydrogen combustion engines, hydrogen fuel cells, and a next-generation technology for hydrogen refueling infrastructure. This makes a big contribution to making the mobility sector more sustainable.
Within this project Drive Line Systems (DLS) works, among other things, on the development of a modular Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) system for mobile heavy duty vehicle applications. DLS purchased an electrical terminal tractor for the implementation of this project. This terminal tractor now has to be adapted for the construction and integration of the SOFC system. To meet the high demands of the SOFC system, the entire electric drive system must be upgraded.
DLS is now working to adapt the electric drive and prepare it for the installation of the SOFC system. This is expected to be completed by the end of 2023. The terminal tractor will then be ready for the continuation of the project: the construction of the SOFC system.
Several project partners are responsible for the development of the innovations and technologies that make up the SOFC system. After this DLS will take care of the construction and integration of these parts in the terminal tractor (retrofit). The construction of the SOFC system will start at the end of 2023.
