Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Engine
Our part for the drive of tomorrow

What drives us tomorrow?

For the research and development on the drive of tomorrow, we offer a uniquie package: test benches with hydrogen infrastructure for fuel cells and hydrogen engines, respective software models and control units plus system engineering know-how.

Know-how and experience on hydrogen and fuel cells

Hydrogen as a carbon-free energy carrier has become the focus of research and development projects. Especially for the heavy-duty sector this technology seems to be promising and there is a corresponding demand for engineering and testing capacities in order to develop solutions ready for series production.

The energy carrier of the future on the test bench

For this reason we have equiped two of our heavy-duty test benches at our location in Werdohl (Germany) for operation with hydrogen. Our own software, hardware, the technical knowledge and now also engine test benches for hydrogen operation as well as test benches for fuel cells - our service portfolio offers our partners and customers the best possible support for the work on the drive of tomorrow.

with hydrogen supply

At a glance - Our test benches in Werdohl with a hydrogen infrastructe

  • 4 test benches with hydrogen infrastructure in total
    • 2 heavy-duty
    • 2 universal (e. g for fuel cell systems)
  • Battery simulation (800 V; up to 1200 A)
  • Pressure range: up to 100bar at engine
  • Mass flow: up to 45 kg/h
  • Hydrogen supply (hydrogen 5.0) via trailer or bundle

Own development and protoyping software on our own prototoyping and series control unit

We support our customers with our own RCP control unit and have model-based software with which the commissioning of a hydrogen engine is possible in a very short time.

Many functions are already integrated into our modular software (AUTOSAR-compliant) that are specially designed for the special features of hydrogen operation. In addition, new software functions as well as new hardware components can be quickly integrated in order to verify or validate them on the test bench.
