(CercleFinance.com) – In September 2022, the German Federal Ministry for Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV) approved the funding application for the HyCET (Hydrogen Combustion Engine Trucks) consortium research project led by the BMW Group.
The research project aims to demonstrate the sustainability potential of trucks with hydrogen combustion engines for transport logistics.
The use of green hydrogen produced from renewable energies will enable CO2-free long-distance logistics in the future.
The research project represents an investment volume of 19.5 million euros, of which 11.3 million euros will be financed by the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport.
“Hydrogen technology offers us the opportunity to rethink mobility,” says Daniela Kluckert, Parliamentary State Secretary to the Federal Minister for Digital Affairs and Transport.
The network has set itself the goal of developing two 18-ton trucks and two 40-ton trucks with hydrogen combustion engines that will be tested as part of the regular BMW Group and DEUTZ transport logistics.
