Bosch: a contract in China for a fleet of hydrogen-powered trucks

According to the China Hydrogen Bulletin, Bosch Hydrogen Powertrain System has delivered 300 hydrogen-powered trucks to Shanxi Meijin Energy, a local coal and coke producer. A further 1,000 are in the pipeline.

Since 2021, Bosch and Qingling Motor (a premium truck manufacturer) have been partners in the Middle Kingdom. Their aim is to develop the use of fuel cells in China, on the professional market. The German equipment manufacturer produces the fuel cell, the air compressor, the power electronics, the sensors and their control unit. These components come from the Wuxi plant, where small-scale production began two years ago.

As a side note, Bosch and Qingling Motor have put 70 hydrogen-powered trucks on the road in China. These have travelled 4 million km.

A new factory in Chongqing is now producing systems with outputs ranging from 76 to 300 kW, depending on the application. At the same time, Bosch Hydrogen Powertrain is racking up orders from COSCO Shipping and China Postal Express & Logistic. A further 1,000 hydrogen-powered trucks are due to roll off the production line.
