Loop Energy and Rheintal-Transporte have announced an agreement for the development and supply of heavy-duty hydrogen fuel cell range extension solutions for electric trucks in Europe.
As a part of the agreement, Rheintal will use Loop’s eFlow fuel cell modules to expand the range of electric trucks. Rheintal anticipates orders of eFlow fuel cell modules for more than 20 hydrogen-fueled trucks and trailers over the next 24 months.
“Over the last two years, Rheintal has evaluated a range of zero-emission vehicle options and determined that pure battery-electric solutions alone will not meet either our operational demands or range requirements,” said Rheintal Principal Wolfgang Normann. “After a thorough review of next-generation vehicle powertrain solutions, we chose Loop Energy as our catalyst for carbon-free power, as their eFlow fuel cell range extender system offers a superior blend of benefits from a battery-electric system coupled with a hydrogen fuel engine to augment its range limitation.”
