Hexagon Purus to supply TMNA for production of fuel cell truck components

Hexagon Purus will provide a full hydrogen storage system and high-voltage battery pack for the heavy-duty fuel cell electric powertrain kit.

Hexagon Purus will suppl components to Toyota North America (TMNA) for serial production of its heavy-duty fuel cell electric powertrain kits. Hexagon Purus will be providing a full hydrogen storage system and high-voltage battery pack for the heavy-duty fuel cell electric powertrain kit.

Hexagon Purus’s collaboration with Toyota started in 2017 as Toyota began development of the fuel cell electric powertrain kits for Class 8 trucks, including the proof of concept “Alpha” truck for the Port of Los Angeles, supporting the ports’ efforts to reduce harmful emissions, the company said. Hexagon Purus also supported the hydrogen-powered heavy-duty fuel cell electric truck powertrain employed in the “Ocean” trucks used in the ZANZEFF “Shore to Store” program.

“We are entering a new era in our collaboration with Toyota supplying components for its fuel cell powertrain kits, to help pave the way for zero-emission commercial transportation. Hydrogen can play a significant role in the reduction of emissions from heavy-duty transportation,” said Todd Sloan, executive VP of battery systems and vehicle integration in Hexagon Purus.

Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky (TMMK) assembles integrated dual fuel-cell (FC) modules for use in hydrogen-powered heavy-duty commercial trucks. The company said the fuel cell kit, including the battery and hydrogen storage systems supplied by Hexagon Purus, will be sold to heavy-duty truck OEMs for hydrogen-powered heavy-duty fuel cell electric Class 8 trucks.

Toyota has been granted a Zero Emission Powertrain (ZEP) Executive Order from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for its new heavy-duty fuel cell electric powertrain. The certification helps heavy-duty Class 8 commercial truck OEMs and operators comply with increasingly strict emissions regulations in the State of California.
