The FCmoveTM-HD+ is the latest product in Ballard Power Systems’ 8th generation heavy duty power module range and is suited for buses, medium and heavy-duty vehicles.
With a 100kW power output, the new FCmoveTM-HD+ is smaller, lighter, more efficient, and less expensive than prior versions, and has been engineered to make vehicle integration easier. It’s been designed to work in both engine bay and rooftop layouts, giving truck and bus operators more options.
The FCmoveTM-HD+ is 40 percent smaller and 30 percent lighter than the preceding 100kW module, with 50 percent less component components. This is expected to result in a 40% reduction in total lifespan cost while retaining industry-leading operational performance, high efficiency, and a broad operating range.
Kevin Colbow, Chief Technology Officer said, “With the launch of our second FCmove™ engine, the FCmove™-HD+, we continue our global leadership in the technological advancement and adoption of hydrogen fuel cells. With broad market access across key verticals of medium and heavy-duty truck, bus and off-road vehicles, the FCmove™-HD+ has wide reaching applications to accelerate the decarbonization of the transportation sector.”
Mr. Colbow continued, “With now over 100 million kilometers in service by the 3,500 buses and trucks powered by our technology, we have industry leading, proven road experience, and confidence in our product life cycle cost. The evolution of our technology and product portfolio continues to position us to lead in this rapidly growing market.”
