Strong reasons to act now

Why Develop Fuel Cell Systems?


Highly efficient systems Low or zero emissions of NOx and hydrocarbons Decrease the fuel consumption for consumers Reduce noise pollution in cities

Technical Challenges
Cost Durability Volume and weight Operational conditions (ambient temperature, humidity, shock vibration). Cooling Dynamic response Start-up time Driving range Fuel infrastructure

HyTRAN Objectives
Technical platform 1: Fuel Cells for propulsion
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Power

Technical platform 2: Fuel Cells as an Auxiliary Power Unit (APU)


Hydrogen generator Diesel Hydrogen Fuel Cell Power

Facts and Figures

Type of Project: Integrated project Coordinator: Volvo Technology Corporation Total budget:16 803 537 EU contribution: 8 811 143 Number of partners: 19 number of countries involved: 7

Conclusions
HyTRAN is a unique in that: It is an exceptional collaboration between automakers and manufacturers of fuel cell systems The goals are to advance fuel cell technology towards commercialisation, rather than to only demonstrate the functionality of fuel cells
Which makes HyTRAN one of Europe's most advanced and realistic fuel cell projects today
