Quantron AG implements fuel cell trucks in Europe

(PresseBox) ( Gersthofen, )
As of now, Quantron AG also offers solutions for companies and local authorities that want to use hydrogen commercial vehicles, thus ending the debate about the prototype status of these vehicles. The Energon is the first in Quantron's upcoming fuel cell product range. The series production is scheduled to start in mid-2022.

It cannot be denied: in order to achieve the internationally agreed climate protection targets, the transport sector must also make a strong contribution. There is much debate about this, but when viewed soberly, we already need emission-free trucks to avert the threat of huge fines. After all, vehicles must become 15 percent more efficient by 2025 (compared to 2019), and by 2030 even 30 percent. This affects municipal vehicles as much as trucks in freight transport.

Quantron AG active in the field of hydrogen since its foundation

The Quantron AG has been working on hydrogen propulsion for commercial vehicles since its foundation and now, with the new Energon, offers a 44-tonne truck with fuel cell for freight transport that can be fully integrated into logistics processes. It has a range of about 700 km. The 130 kW fuel cell used, supported by a 110 kWh LFP battery, powers the 340 kW engine, which is equipped with a 2-speed transmission.

Quantron AG is also working hard on other vehicles and models in order to be able to offer a wide range of fuel cell solutions for companies and local authorities in the near future. Quantron is also providing full support to customers for this type of drive system to ensure that the changeover to hydrogen goes smoothly.

Advantages of the fuel cell

A hydrogen vehicle is an electric vehicle that obtains its energy from a chemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen in the so-called fuel cell. The electricity generated in this process is either consumed directly in the engine or buffered in the on-board battery. Due to the high system efficiency of the fuel cell, hydrogen trucks have identical performance characteristics to normal diesel trucks. But there is one decisive advantage: the local freedom from emissions of CO2, nitrogen oxides and particulate matter. This is because the electrochemical reaction in the fuel cell produces only water vapor, which is then released into the environment when the truck is driven. Added to this are the general advantages of an e-vehicle. Because hydrogen trucks also enjoy tax and toll exemptions as well as lower maintenance and operating costs than trucks with conventional diesel engines.
