HYDROGEN FUEL CELL
MODULAR, MOBILE, AND SCALABLE
eyond battery electric, fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) offer great opportunity for the commercial truck industry. A fuel cell converts the chemical energy from hydrogen into electricity. Hydrogen fuel cells’ only by-product from producing electricity are water and heat. Fuel cells operate at higher efficiencies (>60%), are cleaner than combustion engines and are suitable for heavy trucks in applications requiring a higher density of energy, fast refueling and additional range. FCEVs are ideally suited for operations that include:
- Long haul routes of 300+ miles
- Routes where maximum payload is important
- Rapid refueling is necessary to maintain uptime
- Zero tailpipe emissions are important
- Areas where hydrogen use has been incentivized
General Motors (GM) is a recognized global leader in the hydrogen fuel cell space with multiple proof points of its technology.
Navistar is partnering with GM to develop hydrogen-powered long-haul Class 8 vehicles. GM will supply Hydrotec power cubes for each International® RH™ Series FCEV.
Emerging as a leader in providing scalable hydrogen fuel systems for use in industrial vehicle and truck markets, OneH2, Inc. is partnering with Navistar to put more hydrogen-powered long-haul trucks on the road using its modular, mobile and scalable hydrogen production and fueling capabilities.
Under this partnership, customers can choose the grade of renewability of the hydrogen used to fuel their fleet. OneH2 has a variety of zero- and low-carbon emission hydrogen production options and will tailor solutions to best fit individual customer requirements.
J.B. HUNT TRANSPORT, INC.
Navistar’s complete solution for customer implementation of a zero-emission long-haul system will be initially piloted by J.B. Hunt Transport, Inc.
J.B. Hunt provides innovative supply chain solutions for a variety of customers throughout North America, and has committed to utilize the solution on dedicated routes and to share key learnings.
