Heavy-duty fuel cell systems

zepp.solutions is specialised in the development, production and integration of heavy-duty hydrogen fuel cell systems suitable for various applications. Our systems enable the emission-free propulsion and operation of any type of vehicle or other high power demand application without any drawbacks on uptime, cost or lifetime.

Hydrogen fuel cell systems in heavy-duty applications

The high power demands and utilisation rates of heavy-duty trucks complicate electrification based on battery energy storage systems. Fuel cell systems can meet the energy and power demands of this application without any change in operation or workflow.

The benefits of fuel cell power: it’s silentvibration-free and clean.

At zepp.solutions, we have plenty of experience in developing heavy-duty fuel cell systems. An example of one of our projects is the hydrogen-powered YT203-H2. This zero-emission yard tractor was developed in collaboration with our partner Terberg Benschop. Another heavy-duty project is DreamH2aul. In this project, zepp.solutions is responsible for the development, production and integration of two heavy-duty fuel cell systems into electric N3-trucks.

If you are interested in our heavy-duty zero-emission power systems or components, or if you would like to know more about the possibilities hydrogen offers for your application, get in touch.

Heavy-duty fuel cell system technology

Hydrogen fuel cell technology has several major advantages over alternatives like battery energy systems or conventional combustion engines. These key benefits are best shown in heavy-duty applications with the following characteristics:

  • Long continuous operations
  • High utilisation rates
  • Fleet operations
  • Low emission requirements
  • Electrically powered operations in harsh environmental conditions

Our heavy-duty fuel cell systems are designed around PEM-stacks and can be considered plug-and-play modules. They are all-in-one packages, with integrated control systems, energy management systems, thermal control and a DCDC converter that can deliver directly to a battery of choice.
