Hyundai to develop hydrogen fuel-cell package for power generation
Hyundai Motor Company has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with leading electrical equipment manufacture and energy solution provider Hyundai Electric & Energy Systems Co., to develop a hydrogen fuel cell package for mobile power generation.
Under the agreement, the two parties will develop a hydrogen fuel cell package dedicated for mobile power generators and alternative maritime power (AMP) supply solutions, based on Hyundai Motor’s polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) system that is used in Hyundai Motor’s fuel cell vehicles.
Said to be a “game changer” in the currently petrol-dominated mobile generator market, the new fuel cell-based package system will help to address carbon-neutral electric needs in a variety of industry sectors. This includes port facilities, construction sites and industrial complexes.
“This MOU underlines the importance of providing carbon-neutral solutions in power generation applications in order to accelerate the establishment of a sustainable hydrogen society,” said Saehoon Kim, Executive Vice President and the Head of Fuel Cell Centre of Hyundai Motor Group.
“Hyundai Motor will continue to expand the potential of hydrogen fuel cell technology beyond mobility applications and into the power generation market.
Hyundai Motor Group, the parent of Hyundai Motor Company, also recently introduced “HTWO”, a new brand representing the Group’s hydrogen fuel-cell technology.
