HVS Confirms The New Generation Of Electric Hydrogen HGV Zero …
Innovative long-range, zero-emission hydrogen powered commercial car, Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS), today confirmed its generation of zero-emission hydrogen heavy duty (HGV). ) will have a range of up to 370 miles (depending on load and route) along with an energy efficient refueling time of 15 to 20 minutes.
The highly-anticipated HGV will be revealed at the commercial vehicle trade show on April 18 at the NEC in Birmingham, UK, where HVS will showcase its game-changing articulated tractor unit HGV, a technology that will meet with company writers. aims to be the first UK-developed and designed hydrogen electric heavy duty vehicle on the market.
HVS CEO Jawad Khursheed said: “Through innovative thinking and a down-to-earth approach, HVS has created an HGV that offers the full package of driver technology and ergonomics. The state-of-the-art fuel cell stack, coupled with the industry’s best hydrogen fuel tank, will speed up times refueling and increases time on the road, delivering a unique total of ownership to our customers.
A state-of-the-art fuel cell stackThe vehicle’s HVS propulsion system uses a fuel cell system and stored energy to send electricity to an electric motor to transmit power to the wheels. It uses a kers (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) to recover energy under braking and is controlled as a driver.
The integrated power is controlled by the HVS ‘SEMAS’ advanced control system, which will deliver efficiency and control to the old fuel class, which will deliver the lowest cost of ownership compared to diesel engine offerings on the market.
Fuel cells offer greater capacity, greater transport capacity, and faster refueling than is possible with battery-only electric technology.
The only emission from the vehicle during operation is water vapor, which means no harmful gas emissions of any kind.
Long autonomy and fast refuelingIt is in the long-range heavy-duty vehicle segment that hydrogen fuel cells offer the greatest benefits. Depending on the payload, route, conditions and driving style, the HGV from the HVS has the ability to cover up to 370 miles (600 km).
As a result, large commercial vehicles do not necessarily have to be battery electric vehicles. They are powered by hydrogen gas, stored in forced hydrogen cylinders. Refueling takes much less time than charging a vehicle with an equivalent battery and is comparable to filling a truck with diesel, about 15 to 20 minutes to fill the hydrogen tank. Much of the initial demand for hydrogen will be fueled by mobile dispensers close to demand at existing commercial vehicle stations. These mobile dispensers look very similar to conventional gasoline and diesel, but with the approval of a self-closing hydrogen safety nozzle.
