Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC, a manufacturer of heavy-duty, zero-emission fuel cell systems, announces an order for an E-Series Fuel Cell Engine from Devinn, a systems integrator and product development company based in the Czech Republic. Devinn provides power solutions for both motive and stationary applications and will use the Nuvera® E-60 engine to power its H2BOT semi-autonomous battery electric vehicle charging unit. The project is financed by a European Union (EU) partnership to accelerate research and development in hydrogen as a power source.
Winning the competitive bid allows Nuvera to provide Devinn a zero-emission option for a mobile, independent source of electrical energy using hydrogen fuel cells and variable power outputs, providing universal power and charging opportunities. The H2BOT system is engineered for use in public parking lots, substituting static charging points and providing independence from the electric grid.
With high-performance fuel cell stack technology at its core, Nuvera’s E-60 fuel cell engine enables electrified power plants and powertrains for material handling equipment, buses, trucks, oﬀ-road vehicles and stationary equipment. The E-60 engine provides 59 kW net output power to meet both motive and mobile equipment performance requirements. Nuvera E-Series Fuel Cell Engines include a fully integrated compressor and patented control logic for optimized operation.
Nuvera continues to grow its European presence. The company recently joined Hydrogen Europe, a leading industry association with more than 290 members partnering with the European Union and global stakeholders to develop hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. Nuvera Fuel Cells Europe is a fully equipped business, engineering, testing and service center for Nuvera fuel cell products. Based in Milan, Nuvera Europe provides local first-responder service capabilities for European customers. Its state-of-the-art fuel cell Engine Test Module, located in Osio, provides automated high-capacity fuel cell testing facilities and applications assessment. Nuvera sells and services fuel cell engines and components globally.
“Devinn has a long track record of developing and delivering hydrogen-based solutions through its technical capabilities, so Nuvera is honored to have its innovative technology selected as the best platform to meet their needs,” said Santiago Bresani, sales and business development leader for Nuvera Fuel Cells Europe. “We are delighted that Nuvera’s E-60 fuel cell engine will help power the transition to the emission-free future that the EU is seeking through its clean power initiatives.”
