Hyundai Hydrogen Trucks

These trucks produce zero carbon during transportation and are deployed across Switzerland

How it works:

Like all-electric vehicles, fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) use electricity to power an electric motor. In contrast to other electric vehicles, FCEVs produce electricity using a fuel cell powered by hydrogen, rather than drawing electricity from only a battery.

The trucks by Hayundai are deployed for rental in Switzerland.

The hydrogen is produced near the ALPIQ hydroelectric power station in Gösgen and stored in containers with high-pressure tanks. This can supply around 50 trucks or 1700 passenger cars per year.

The production of 100% green hydrogen is possible thanks to the carbon dioxide-free process: in a transformer, the electricity generated from hydropower is reduced to the voltage of 400 volts and converted into direct current. Then demineralised drinking water is divided into hydrogen and oxygen by renewable electricity. This hydrogen is compressed to 350 bar by a compressor and pumped into interchangeable containers. After these are taken to the filling station, hydrogen vehicles can be refuelled. As these only emit water and the cycle is closed.
