Global manufacturers support the hydrogen fuel

  • Written by Aitor

13 Last September, four international vehicle manufacturers came together to demonstrate that hydrogen-powered FCEV technologies are not the future but the present. Seven FCEV vehicles Mercedes-Benz, Honda, Hyundai and Toyota brought their different fuel cell systems to European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012.

This tour will last one month, with special stops in nine European cities, where those interested will have the opportunity to experience the benefits of this alternative engine. In several cities, will be the first opportunity for the public to know and try FCEV vehicles, whose only emission is water.

The aim of the campaign is to inform the FCEV politicians, industry leaders, media and the general public a clear message. Although an hydrogen vehicle technology, is essential to improve the hydrogen distribution infrastructure. This tour represents undoubtedly the most comprehensive effort to promote the FCEV in Europe this year.

The FCEV of participating manufacturers have left Hamburg last September after visiting 13 Hannover, Bolzano, Paris, Cardiff, Bristol, Swindon, London and Copenhagen, with the support of local authorities in each city. H2 Logic Denmark will provide mobile refueling stations in some cities of the tour.

The European Hydrogen Road Tour is part of 2012 "H2moves Scandinavia" project ("Hydrogen moves Scandinavia"). This is the first European project (European Lighthouse Project) Hydrogen funded by the joint program on fuel cells and hydrogen (European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking), launched by the European Commission and stakeholders in the European sector. The project focuses on gathering greater acceptance among customers of hydrogen-powered FCEV and prepare the market for fuel cell technology. The experience of using 19 FCEV vehicles in Oslo and Copenhagen and the corresponding refueling infrastructure shows that hydrogen technology is already reliable even in the harshest of Scandinavian winters.

Michel Gardel, Vice President of Communications and External Affairs and Environmental Toyota Motor Europe, said: "Toyota has 20 years actively investigating the fuel cell technology, and we are working to commercialize our fuel cell vehicle in 2015 new generation. The European Hydrogen Road Tour offers our company and our partners a great opportunity to demonstrate the availability of technology to European consumers. "

Dr. Christian Mohrdieck, Director Development fuel cell system at Daimler AG, emphasizes the importance of this technology: "On the way to emission-free mobility, electric vehicles, fuel cell, offering both a great autonomy and reduced refueling time, play a leading role in the future. However, the success of this technology depends absolutely certain conditions, such as the availability of a hydrogen infrastructure at national level are met. "

Thomas Brachmann, Department of Research and Engineering Vehicles in Honda R & D Europe (Deutschland) GmbH, said "Honda believes that electric vehicles fuel cell are ultimate solution for mobility, as they give practical, clean response and almost silent on transportation needs. The European Hydrogen Road Tour offers the public, the media and representatives of the administration the opportunity to experience this technology first-person zero emissions. "

Allan Rushforth, Senior Vice President and COO of Hyundai Motor Europe, describes his reasons for joining the tour: "Hyundai is proud to participate fully in the European Hydrogen Road Tour 2012. The Hyundai FCEV ix35 not only shows our commitment to producing electric vehicles with fuel cell, but also the benefits of VEGF. As you improve the availability and performance of this technology, we can expect the FCEV offer future generations a sustainable mobility and a drastic climate change mitigation. "

About electric fuel cell vehicles
Fuel cells efficiently convert the chemical energy of hydrogen into electricity and heat, and emit only water. Combined with an electric motor can be used to provide vehicles with much greater autonomy and faster refueling time than battery electric vehicles.
The electric fuel cell vehicles with comparable performance to vehicles with conventional internal combustion engine, but no exhaust emissions and low noise operation.
