Ballard Power Systems launched FCmove-HD+, designed for buses and heavy-duty trucks, and is the latest product in Ballard’s 8th generation heavy duty power module portfolio.

The FCmove-HD+, with a 100kW power output, has been designed to improve ease of vehicle integration. It has been engineered for  engine bay and rooftop configurations, enabling optionality in truck and bus applications.

The FCmove-HD+ is over 40 per cent more compact and over 30 per cent lighter than the previous 100kW module, with 50 per cent less component parts. This results in an anticipated 40 per cent improvement in total lifecycle cost while maintaining leading operating performance, high efficiency, and wide operating range.

FCmove products are being integrated by bus and truck OEM partners. The first vehicles powered by the 100kW, FCmove-HD+ are anticipated in 2022.
