– Co-developed a mid-to-large hydrogen fuel cell forklift truck with Hyundai Motor Company and Hyundai Construction Equipment

SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. Feb. 30, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Hyundai Mobis (KRX 012330) announced on the 29th that it has successfully jointly developed a prototype hydrogen fuel cell forklift truck with Hyundai Motor Company and Hyundai Construction Equipment and would embark on a demonstration project to assess the performance of the prototype

The developed hydrogen fuel cell forklift truck is medium to large in size which can lift up to five tons of cargo and can be operated continuously for five hours when its hydrogen fuel cell is fully charged Although high powered forklifts Small size hydrogen fuel cell designed to carry small items indoors have already been unveiled, this is actually the first time that a medium to large size hydrogen fuel cell forklift has been developed. The mid-to-large-sized hydrogen fuel cell forklift has been fitted with a mass-produced hydrogen fuel cell system by Hyundai Motor Group, the first of its kind in the world In doing so, Hyundai Mobis has successfully independently developed a fuel cell power pack optimized for hydrogen cell forklifts.

The power supply of a hydrogen fuel cell forklift serves as a generator which generates electricity for the hydrogen fuel cell forklift truck by itself, and it is a system which has built-in components , including a fuel cell, a high voltage battery, a hydrogen tank and a cooling device Since the hydrogen cell system used for automobiles could not be applied to its hydrogen cell forklift, Hyundai Mobis has developed a custom system for this

Following the development of the hydrogen fuel cell forklift truck, Hyundai Mobis and other subsidiaries are also jointly developing a hydrogen fuel cell excavator and plan to develop and introduce a prototype this year. Like the hydrogen fuel cell forklift, Hyundai Mobis also aims to bring the hydrogen fuel cell excavator currently in development to market by 2023 after going through processes such as demonstration projects and pilot projects.

Hyundai Mobis implemented mass production system for Hyundai Motor Company’s hydrogen fuel cell system and has since been striving to expand its commercial presence in the field of hydrogen fuel cells Hyundai Mobis currently has the capacity to produce hydrogen fuel cells for 23,000 cars per year and plans to expand its production capacity to 40,000 cars per year by 2022
