Zero emission truck producer, Clean Logistics, has recently presented its first hydrogen-powered, zero-emission truck ‘fyuriant’ to the public at the Stade airfield in Germany. The company says this heralds a new era in environmentally-friendly road transport.
The new truck is equipped with two hydrogen fuel cells with 2×120 kW output and hydrogen tanks with a volume of 43 kg. This ensures a sufficiently high range of over 400 km and short refuelling times of less than 15 minutes. The rear axle, which is equipped with wheel hub motors, has a maximum torque of 17,000 Nm, which provides the truck with the appropriate power in any driving situation. The intelligent control system developed in-house by Clean Logistics enables an efficient control of the overall system in every driving situation. The energy recovered during braking, for instance, is temporarily stored in a battery and made available again for the next acceleration.
Clean Logistics is currently expanding its manufacturing capacity and expects to be able to deliver 450 per year from the end of 2023 onwards.
