Hoerbiger And HD Hyundai Infracore Cooperate On Hydrogen-Powered Combustion Engine

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Central.

These two paragraphs outline the story.

This year’s ConExpo in Las Vegas was full of surprises and amazing news. Among the stars of the exhibition was the hydrogen-powered internal combustion engine (ICE) from HD Hyundai Infracore equipped with H2PFI injectors made by HOERBIGER.

This hydrogen-powered ICE can produce a power output of 300 kW (402 HP) and will see mass production in 2025. It will be installed on buses, trucks and construction equipment. While meeting Zero CO2 and Zero Impact Emission requirements it is also 25-30% more economical than battery packs or fuel cells when vehicle price and maintenance costs are considered. One fueling of 10 minutes allows the vehicle to drive for a distance of up to 500 km (310.6 miles).

The more of these stories I read about hydrogen internal combustion engines, the more they convince me, that this is the way to go.

These advantages keep repeating themselves.

  • Large range.
  • Quick refuelling times.
  • Understandable technology.
  • Suitable for heavy applications.
  • Similar manufacturing to current diesel and petrol engines.
  • Less exotic rare earths and metals.
  • Lower environmental footprint.
  • Can be converted from existing diesels.

The one thing they all need is different lean-burn fuel injection. Hence Hyundai’s tie-up with HOERBIGER.
