The hydrogen fuel cell electric truck and transit bus markets are developing at a rapid pace, signaling that hydrogen will play a vital role in the zero-emission mobility future. Heavy-duty vehicles are particularly suitable for fuel cell drives given their weight and the long distances to bridge. Our product portfolio includes specific cylinders and systems that meet the requirements of this market segment.
With over 60 years of tank production experience, we are your trusted partner for composite tank technology. Our experienced design and product development team assists you from concept to commercialization.
Our in-house test capabilities for most relevant requirements (hydraulic, leak, burst testing, bonfire, penetration, permeation etc.) ensure highest safety and quality standards.
"As nations around the world pursue a variety of sustainable transportation solutions, the hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) presents a promising opportunity for American consumers and automakers."
We have been adapting our leading and proven Type 4 composite pressure tank technology for a wide range of on-board, ground storage, and distribution applications in the hydrogen industry. Read more about how we are partnering with our trusted customers to position their products for success.
North America's largest transit bus maker, New Flyer of America Inc. and New Flyer Canada ULC (collectively "New Flyer"), has ordered high-pressure hydrogen tanks from Hexagon Purus to be used on 25 of its groundbreaking Xcelsior® hydrogen fuel cell (or fuel cell-electric) transit buses.
Our composite high-pressure tanks for fuel cell electric vehicles aremade of full carbon fiber and are available in the pressure level of 350 and700 bar.
To ensure highest quality standards, our manufacturing facilities are certified according to ISO 9001:2008 and IATF 16949:2016, whereas our tanks comply with various international standards.
Our engineers are continuously researching the lightest and safest material combinations. Type 4 tanks are 75% lighter than steel alternatives.
The corrosion-free and fatigue-resistant properties of Type 4 tanks lead to high cycle performance. Our tanks have demonstrated > 90,000 km in service.
We have been developing Type 4 high-pressure cylinders for fuel cell passenger cars which are fueled byhydrogen and produce no harmful emissions when operating.
