Billerica, Mass., March 9, 2022 — Nuvera Fuel Cells, LLC, a manufacturer of heavy-duty, zero-emission fuel cell engines for on- and off-road mobility and other applications, has entered into a strategic relationship with Dayco, a leading engine products and drive systems manufacturer for the automotive, heavy-duty, and industrial market segments, to provide fully integrated fuel cell solutions for commercial vehicles.
Nuvera’s unique patented controls and flexible applications architecture for fuel cells, along with Dayco’s capabilities and products for high-performance propulsion systems, are expected to allow for improved system performance, durability, and reliability with high quality assurance and scalability.
"With ever-tightening regulations in the US, Europe, and Asia, there is a critical need for zero-emission power solutions for commercial vehicles in trucking, public transit, and many off-road sectors that meet highly demanding performance requirements. Nuvera’s commercially available fuel cell packages delivers high efficiency, reliability and durability,” said Lucien Robroek, CEO of Nuvera. “Coupled with Dayco’s engineering services and automotive componentry, we are providing our customers a direct path to adoption of fuel cell-powered vehicles and machinery.”
Dayco is a Tier 1 vehicle integrator providing vehicle performance and energy management services. Dayco’s unique offering provides advanced zero-emission propulsion solutions built around Nuvera’s eighth-generation fuel cell stack technology, integrated into a power system with balance-of-plant components and embedded controls.
“Dayco’s energy control management and integration competencies, coupled with Nuvera’s decades of experience in fuel cell technologies for motive applications, will allow us to provide a highly optimized and efficient zero-emission integrated fuel cell power system for commercial vehicles, industrial, material handling, and off-highway applications with best-in-class performance and durability,” stated Wouter Nijenhuis, Executive Vice President of OE Sales and Business Development at Dayco.
Fuel cell electric vehicles combine the zero-emission characteristics of battery-only EVs with advantages associated with conventional internal combustion engine vehicles, providing comparable range and refuelling time along with the simplicity of electric drivetrains. Dayco and Nuvera are committed to delivering sustainable integrated fuel cell system solutions for off-highway, heavy-duty and light-duty applications across the globe.
