In the clock, where battery powered cars are dominating the automobile market, hydrogen power cell technology too has buckled down to make their move on the roads of Australia. This clash to take over the road between the two is going to be hard.
As battery powered Tesla automobiles like a Model S Sedan, Model X SUV and Model 3 are raising their space, Hyundai has made an announcement regarding hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
The Australian government has ordered Hyundai to supply 20 of its next-generation hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in 2018 to elucubrate the technology generously. The order is a part of the government’s Renewable Transport Fuels Test Berth in Canberra. The Renewable Fuel Test which costs $23 million is not limited to only 20 next-generation hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, but also includes Hornsdale Wind farm Stage 3 project, which will fill up hydrogen refueller efficient of vigouring over 1000 fuel-cell electric vehicles.
Mr. Charlie Kim, CEO, Hyundai Motor Company Australia, said that he hopes the project will inspire others too.
“We commend the vision and ambition of everyone responsible for the Renewable Transport Fuels Test Berth and Hornsdale Wind Farm Stage 3. We hope this brilliant project inspires others to see the potential of hydrogen as a future fuel for cars. This first small step toward a zero-emissions transport solution for Australia is very significant and we are proud to be involved.”
Hornsdale Wind Farm Stage 3 project is set to deliver Siemens Stylizer System hydrogen refueller. The technology provides hydrogen procured from electrolysis method. It is used to save power from excess electricity and is also used as a fuel for automobiles. With this source more than 1000 fuel cell electric vehicles will travel an average of 14,000km in a year out with the use of any other kind of fuel.
Yet to reveal the major thing is whether Hyundai will deliver a new model or the audience is going to witness a modification in one of its previous models.
