GAUSSIN Presents World's First Hydrogen-Powered Fuel Cell AGV H2 for Ports Application

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/16/2022, Location: Europe

GAUSSIN, a pioneer in the clean and intelligent transport of goods and people, announces the launch of the world's first hydrogen-powered fuel cell Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV H2) for seaports. These new vehicles complement GAUSSIN’s range of hydrogen-powered vehicles following the release of the hydrogen-powered fuel cell ATM and APM. The AGV can be autonomously driven in infra-structureless and mixed traffic environment. It will help port operators switch to zero-emission immediately and provide longer operating hours, shorter and less frequent refuelling, as well as quiet and efficient transportation.

GAUSSIN’s state-of-the-art, complementary solution for port operators
Ports traditionally rely on diesel-powered trucks and tractors operating in a cluster environment are involved in moving cargo to and from ships. This contributes significantly to CO2 emissions. Many feasibility studies have shown that ports are ideal locations for hydrogen-powered transport trucks and container handling equipment as they are a natural place for hydrogen transportation, storage, and refuelling sites for various applications. With hydrogen production costs dropping more than 50% since 2015, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles are now a viable solution for port operators to meet both the operation efficiency and green targets.

A new vehicle with strong performances

The H2 AGV shows strong and distinctive performance, which are detailed below:
Application: Containers
Payload: 65t
Maximum speed: 25 km/h
Drive line: 4x4
Front axle capacity: 50t
Rear axle capacity: 50t
Traction motor: 2*226kW permanent magnet
Fuel Cell: 45kW
H2 tank capacity: 20kg @350bar
Battery capacity: 60kwh
Autonomy with H2: 15 hours
Additional autonomy with Batteries: 3 hours

“Once again, we are expanding our range of hydrogen-powered fuel cell products to support the zero-emission drive in the port sector. We believe our H2 AGV will contribute significantly to the operation efficiency expected in this demanding environment,” said Christophe Gaussin, CEO of GAUSSIN.
