The hydrogen-based fuel cell HyRange® extender for battery-electric powered commercial vehicles and buses is an effective support for application areas where the existing battery capacity is not sufficient for the intended operation.
Typical areas of application:
- Local public transport
- Municipal vehicles
- Logistics and commercial vehicles
- Airport apron applications
- Maritime energy solutions
- Onboard power supply (APU)
With our in-depth know-how and over 20 years of experience in the development of fuel cell systems, Proton Motor offers fuel cell-based solutions for vehicle drives free of noise and pollutant emissions. As the perfect partner for vehicle manufacturers, original equipment manufacturers, suppliers of electric vehicle drive systems, vehicle integrators and operators of vehicle fleets for delivery and passenger transport, Proton Motor provides its customers with comprehensive and individual support in the layout, design and integration of fuel cell hybrid systems and in the development of fuel cell service networks.
In order to compensate for the system-related disadvantages of pure battery drives, such as the high weight, short range and long charging times of the vehicle, Proton Motor offers the HyRange® as a sensible addition with our hydrogen-based fuel cell technology.
Proton Motor has many years of experience in the field of fuel cell hybridisation in combination with batteries and also in conjunction with capacitor technology.
The modular system design allows OEM partners to easily integrate it into a wide range of installation conditions. By specifically adapting the power of the fuel cell system and the application-specific design of the battery, it is possible to vary between pure plug-in hybrid operation and pure range extender operation and optimally adapt them to the respective requirements. In this way, power outputs greater than 30 kW can also be easily realised by combining the standard assemblies.
With specially developed simulation software, Proton Motor can thus individually dimension the battery, fuel cell and hydrogen tank/storage for almost any application. This can be done for an individual vehicle as well as for a complete fleet of vehicles within a vehicle fleet. For this purpose, Proton Motor offers a fleet analysis as a customised service.
