PowerCell Sweden AB has received an order for a MS-100 fuel cell system from a leading European construction equipment manufacturer.
The system is expected to be delivered by the end of the first half of 2021.
The customer will use the system for tests of how fuel cells and hydrogen can be used for an electrification of a wheel loader. In April last year, PowerCell Sweden AB launched new strategic priorities which, among other things, include an increased focus on off-road vehicles such as construction equipment.
“Various types of construction equipment almost always run on diesel and therefore account for large emissions of carbon dioxide and harmful substances such as soot and nitrogen oxides. An electrification based on fuel cells and hydrogen is a highly attractive alternative for these types of vehicles as it offers the same driveability and up-time as conventional drivetrains with no other emissions than water,” Andreas Bodén, Director Sales & Marketing, said.
