Global supplier of zero-emissions hydrogen and fuel cell powered commercial vehicles Hyzon Motors is finding new ways to bring zero-emission vehicles to roads sooner. Hyzon plans to allow customers to exchange their used diesel truck chassis for conversion to fuel cell electric operation. After removing diesel components, these used trucks will be upfitted with the company’s proprietary fuel cell system, electric drivetrain, and hydrogen storage system through collaboration with Fontaine Modification.Hyzon projects that the Repower program will be a more efficient method by which fleets decouple from diesel, putting clean trucks on the road sooner. Current lead time for new vehicle chassis ordered today is up to 16 months. Hyzon expects to Repower vehicles much more quickly, since the company will have direct access to the existing chassis. Repowering an existing vehicle is also expected to reduce customer costs, leading to Total Cost of Ownership at or below diesel parity in California, as a result of available subsidies. Additionally, the Repower program avoids waste and manufacturing carbon emissions generated by asset renewal.Hyzon’s 200 kW hydrogen fuel cell Repower truck, based on the most powerful fuel cell stack Hyzon has developed, will begin testing by end of 2022; these heavy duty fuel cell systems will be produced in the company’s Bolingbrook facility in Illinois.
