Sustainable transport solution takes off
Manufactured at the Schmitz Cargobull production plant in Lithuania, the body is equipped with a multifunctional floor, two load-securing rails and a tail lift, completing the Hyundai hydrogen-powered vehicle. Assembly of the vehicle and the DEKRA inspection of it took place at the GRW plant in Toddin, where Schmitz Cargobull's project production is also still based. This development makes Schmitz Cargobull the first certified bodybuilder for Hyundai in Germany.
Box bodies are optimally equipped to accommodate the hydrogen tanks
"I am thrilled at how quickly this concept could be implemented. This vehicle is another step forward for sustainable transport solutions with hydrogen in Germany," says Altenschöpfer.
"Solutions for sustainable freight transport are particularly important to Schmitz Cargobull. We are pleased to realise this great pilot project in such a short time and will complete a total of 17 vehicles in the next few weeks. The box bodies from Schmitz Cargobull are optimally equipped to accommodate the hydrogen tanks on the bulkhead," says Essmann.
" As the first hydrogen series truck to be approved in Germany, we were able to show the vehicle together with Schmitz Cargobull at the BMDV conference "Climate-friendly commercial vehicles" in Berlin. There we were also allowed to present our concept for the practical use of the trucks in detail", says Sara Schiffer, Managing Director, HyLane GmbH. “Vehicles of the type "XCIENT Fuel Cell" will be prepared – depending on customer requirements - for their use on the road. Refrigerated and dry freight boxes are mounted on the motor vehicle chassis in order to be able to safely transport the goods. Some of the vehicles will also be fitted with a refrigerated trailer."
