With the new Hyundai Nexo company vehicle, Mehrer Compression GmbH from Balingen is the absolute pioneer in the region for the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier.
With this, the Southern German company once again underlines its belief in fuel cell technology and confirms its own focus on the manufacture of machinery and plants for the energy industry.
Managing Director Jörg-Peter Mehrer ordered the Hyundai Nexo from Auto-Team Balingen/Albstadt in the beginning of 2019. “At our company, we are fully committed to the absolutely future-oriented technologies with hydrogen and have already been producing high-pressure compressors for H2 compression for several years,” says Jörg-Peter Mehrer. “State-of-the-art energy companies, research institutes and hydrogen filling stations from all over the world are among our customers. It was therefore very important for me to be able to clearly demonstrate our commitment to the energy sources of the future to the outside world.
The colleagues from the Auto Team are also enthusiastic. “For us, the order from Mehrer Compression represented the first order in this still new market segment. The Hyundai Nexo uses the latest fuel cell technology with the highest level of driving comfort. With its efficiency of 60 percent, it occupies the top position in the H2 vehicle segment,” enthuses Thorsten Spörl from the Auto Team Balingen/Albstadt.
Thanks to the H2 Mobility Initiative, the expansion of the hydrogen filling station network is also making steady progress in Baden-Württemberg. Mehrer is looking forward to absolutely emission-free driving with the new Hyundai Nexo and hopes that the fuel cell technology will soon become more and more accepted by other companies and private individuals.
