GreenGT to conceive hydrogen trucks with Kamaz

GreenGT, involved in the H2 truck through the CATHyOPÉ project, has partnered with KAMAZ, the leading Russian truck and bus manufacturer, to develop GreenGT Kamaz hydrogen trucks with electric-hydrogen propulsion. The announcement of this collaboration was made at the ComTrans exhibition in Moscow, where GreenGT and KAMAZ unveiled a prototype.

This 40-tonne GreenGT Kamaz hydrogen trucks are powered by a 170 kW hydrogen fuel cell system with two 85 kW stacks supplied by six hydrogen tanks. It has a combined storage capacity of about 45 kg (99lbs) of hydrogen. The 570 hp truck claims a range of 500 km (about 310.7 mi) and can be refueled in less than 15 minutes. The prototype presented in Moscow is in a 6×2 configuration based on a KAMAZ chassis-cab. The fuel cell system was entirely developed by GreenGT S.A. in Switzerland as part of the GoH! (Generation of Hydrogen) project.

Initiated by the Nomads Foundation in 2018, this visionary project has successfully led to the creation of an innovative Swiss hydrogen truck. Be sure to mark your calendars for its highly anticipated debut at the 11th Swiss Commercial Vehicle Show in Bern, taking place from November 10th to 13th. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness firsthand the cutting-edge advancements and sustainable solutions presented by this remarkable Swiss hydrogen truck.
