The Canadian fuel cell manufacturer Ballard Power Systems presented a new fuel cell stack at the UITP Global Public Transport Summit in Stockholm, Sweden, in mid-June 2019. The FCmoveTM-HD is specifically designed for the Heavy Duty Motive Market. According to the manufacturer, the compact, robust stack enables significantly more cost-effective operation and higher reliability with 50 percent fewer parts (40 percent volume and 35 percent weight reduction).
H2-international has recently asked manufacturers of fuel cell stacks not only about their systems’ technical specifications, but also about their opinion of current market developments. As only seven companies participated in the survey, the results may not be very indicative of where the entire market is heading. However, you can discern a few trends.
