HyRange®- Extender made by Proton Motor is on duty at Hermes
Fuel cells revolutionise local transport and logistics
The drive system is based on the HyRange® fuel cell system combined with a battery. This system meets demands in respect of range, payload and costs, with zero emissions and low-noise drive.
The hydrogen based HyRange®-Extender for electrical battery-driven commercial vehicles and buses provides additional energy for areas of application for which the existing battery capacity is not sufficient enough. Supported by the German NIP (Nationale Innovationsprogramm Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzellentechnologie) the system was developed as a modular solution in order to ensure a broad range of applications for various platforms. The only emission produced during operation is a small amount of clean, warm water. No harmful substances are produced.
