H2SYS and Hyundai strengthen partnerships for hydrogen power generation
Both partners will provide a low-carbon power generation solution for several end users, going well beyond zero-emissions vehicles.
H2SYS, a French-based producer of hydrogen power systems and generators, and the global auto giant Hyundai Motor Company will collaborate on developing hydrogen generators sets.
The partnership would combine Hyundai Motor fuel cell technology with H2SYS’s hydrogen hybrid gensets to develop clean power generation solutions for diverse applications.
H2SYS started work on refrigeration transportation by employing the first embedded hydrogen-powered module into a semi-trailer in 2019. It, later on, introduced the BOXHY® line of hydrogen power generators for public works, events and light mobile backup. It then partnered with Hyundai to scale up into the higher power hydrogen generator market.
Hyundai Motor recently launched HTWO, a new brand to represent its hydrogen fuel cell system. Hyundai has already shipped several fuel cell systems to H2SYS to develop higher power mobile and stationary electric power generators.
H2SYS has also purchased additional fuel cell systems from Hyundai Motor to produce more generator sets for delivery scheduled for 2021 and 2022.
Sébastien Faivre, CEO of H2SYS, said, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to strengthen our collaboration with Hyundai Motor by fostering the use of clean energy and accelerating decarbonisation of human activities around the world.”
Sae Hoon Kim, Head of Fuel Cell Center, Hyundai Motor Company, said, “We believe our decades of experience in hydrogen fuel cells will achieve new synergies with H2SYS’s know-how in hydrogen power generation.
Mr Kim further added, “By leveraging our combined expertise, our partners in mobility, infrastructure and energy can further advance the potential for a comprehensive hydrogen ecosystem.”
