Hyundai Ships Hydrogen Fuel-Celled Trucks to Switzerland
Hyundai Motor Starts Developing Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vessels.
By the end of 2022, the company will install its systems on coastal vessels and offer compatible modules for ocean-going ships. By 2025, the performance of equipment will be improved and the technology will be applied in the production of large water transport.
Hyundai Motor has already signed a memorandum of cooperation with the South Korean province of Gangwon-do to apply hydrogen systems to small five-ton fishing vessels. The agreement was concluded within the framework of the national plan for the transition of the country’s economy to hydrogen.
This will be the first use of Hyundai fuel cells in non-automotive vehicles..
Earlier Hyundai and Kia also announced that they will start producing cars with solar panels on the roof and hood from 2019..
