The group Forvia* presented its hydrogen solutions for heavy goods vehicles at the IAA Transportation in Hanover.
The group exhibited a cryogenic storage solution developed by Faurecia. The solution is taking advantage of the higher energy density of liquid hydrogen, it can contain the same amount of hydrogen in a 40% smaller volume, making it easier to integrate into any vehicle and maximising the amount of hydrogen on board. This system is suitable for intensive use and allows a range of up to 1,000 kilometres. This liquid hydrogen storage device is co-developed with Air Liquide.
In addition, Forvia is also presenting its containerised storage solution, adapted to various industrial and fleet management applications, such as hydrogen transport and distribution (refuelling stations). It is already being used in the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region as part of the Zero Emission Valley project.
In addition, the booth hosted Symbio (a joint venture with Michelin), which exhibited its StackPack 150 battery for heavy goods vehicles.
