Hyundai and cummins jointly developed a powertrain based on hydrogen fuel cells

Hyundai motor and cummins announced a partnership on Sept. 27 on hydrogen fuel cell technology.The two companies jointly develop hydrogen fuel-cell systems that combine modern hydrogen fuel cell systems with cummins' electric powertrain, battery and control technology and plan to sell them to commercial vehicle manufacturers in North America.In the future, the two companies may expand their cooperation beyond the commercial vehicle market to assess the development of fuel-cell generators.

Hyundai motor and cummins (nyse: CMI) today announced that two global powertrain leaders have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to jointly evaluate the development and commercialization of electric and fuel cell powertrains.


These new powertrains are expected to be developed by combining modern fuel cell systems with cummins powertrain, battery and control technology.The initial development will focus on the north American commercial vehicle market, including north American oems working on integrating these systems for their vehicles.The two companies will also explore how they can work together to develop next-generation fuel cell systems, and each promised to assign a personal team to investigate and pursue other areas of cooperation.

"This partnership is a great opportunity for both companies to leverage their strengths and create new opportunities to grow and expand the portfolio of products we bring to our customers," said Thad Ewald, vice President of corporate strategy at cummins.Over the past year, we have made significant investments to accelerate our fuel cell capabilities, including our acquisition of hydrogen, and this partnership is another step forward."

"With hyundai's global leadership in fuel cell systems and our unmatched electricized powertrain technology, we hope this partnership will make a mark on the commercial vehicle market," said Saehoon Kim, vice President and head of hyundai motor group's fuel cell division."This partnership will enable us to further diversify our business and consolidate our global leadership position in hydrogen energy by selling new and existing modern fuel cell systems."

The partnership provides a springboard for hyundai to increase its presence in the north American commercial vehicle market and for cummins to strengthen its portfolio of electric products by adding modern advanced fuel cell technology.

The new partnership is likely to expand beyond the commercial vehicle market, as the two companies will also evaluate the development of fuel-cell generators.For many organizations, the provision of reliable backup power generation equipment to prevent data loss in an emergency is a business-critical requirement.Fuel cell backup power generation is attractive because of its reduced carbon footprint.
