Bosch Expands Its Hydrogen Portfolio
Bosch has expanded its product portfolio for mobile hydrogen applications: as of now, it also includes components for H2 tank systems such as tank valves or pressure regulators. For this purpose, the supplier of technology and services has entered into an engineering partnership with the Italian specialist OMB Saleri in which the products are jointly further developed.
“In the drive to achieve climate neutrality, hydrogen will be an important building block in the future powertrain mix,” said Dr. Uwe Gackstatter, president of the Bosch Powertrain Solutions division. “Together with OMB Saleri, we are making H2 tank components ready for volume production.”
Demand for powertrains that run on hydrogen will experience strong growth in the years ahead, especially in commercial vehicles. Bosch expects that by 2030, around 1 in 8 newly registered commercial vehicles worldwide will be powered by a fuel cell. Bosch and OMB Saleri hope that the partnership they have now put in place for components for hydrogen refueling systems will expand their market positions in the H2 sector. Their collaboration includes a licensing and engineering agreement for several products relating to hydrogen storage solutions at pressures of 350 bar and 700 bar. Joint simultaneous engineering teams are now further developing the existing products and optimizing them for volume production. The 2 companies’ goal is to leverage economies of scale and offer components for hydrogen refueling solutions at competitive prices.
