Atena is currently working on developing the hydrogen Terminal Tractor for the H2PORTS project. It is anticipated that this Yard Tractor, which will be powered by a fuel cell provided by Ballard, will undergo real-world testing two years after its arrival at Valencia Terminal Europa (VTE), a Grimaldi Group facility in the Port of Valencia.
They will rely on the CNH2-developed mobile hydrogen refueling station for refueling, which will guarantee the supply of fuel in suitable conditions for both this pilot and the fuel-cell-powered Reach Stacker that will be demonstrated at the MSCTV terminal.
The fuel cell/battery hybrid powertrain of this Terminal Tractor enables the vehicle to carry out all of the demanding tasks required during roll-on/roll-off operations. Its hydrogen storage system consists of four Type 3 cylinders with an overall capacity of about 12 kg and a pressure of 350 bar.
This system ensures that it will operate continuously for at least six hours before needing to be refueled, which is about the length of an average working shift. The electric motor is a lightweight and powerful device that is ideal for power-intensive applications.
It is powered by a 70 kW Ballard fuel cell module and a 25 kWh high-performance LiFePO4 battery. Particularly, the electric motor can charge the battery while braking or decelerating or simultaneously receive power from the fuel cell and battery for traction.
If necessary, the fuel cell can simultaneously power both the electric motor and the battery. Because it utilizes up to 15% of kinetic energy recovery, the hybrid powertrain exhibits high operational efficiency.
The Global Hydrogen terminal tractor market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
After it arrives at Valencia Terminal Europa in Valenciaport, the vehicle, which will be powered by a fuel cell supplied by clean energy specialists Ballard, is scheduled to undergo real-world testing for two years.CNH2-developed mobile hydrogen refuelling stations will be used for refuelling.
These ensure that this pilot and the Reach Stacker, which will also be powered by fuel cells at the MSCTV terminal, will have access to fuel in suitable conditions.The vehicle is able to complete all of the demanding tasks required for Ro-Ro operations thanks to its fuel cell battery.
The hydrogen storage system is made up of four Type cylinders and has a capacity of over kg. It can run continuously for at least six hours before needing to be refuelled, which is about how long an average working shift lasts.
In addition, this motor is able to switch batteries during braking or decelerations or simultaneously receive traction from the fuel cell and battery.Utilizing up to percent of kinetic energy recovery, this hybrid powertrain exhibits high operational efficiency overall.
Hydrogen is a clean energy carrier that is convenient to store and produces only heat and water when used. The hydrogen fuel cell uses green hydrogen to convert H2 into electricity, producing zero-emission equipment that is also carbon-neutral,
