Voith for hydrogen

As an expert in carbon composites, with over ten years of experience in industry and the automotive sector, Voith has extensive knowledge of hydrogen tank systems. On this basis, Voith has developed a ready-to-install H2 Plug & Drive storage system for heavy-duty vehicles. Since December 2023, the 700 bar hydrogen tanks integrated into it have been approved for the on-road use required for marketing in Europe.

Through the new company, Voith brings together know-how from both sectors to fully exploit the possibilities of hydrogen technology and contribute to the decarbonisation of heavy transport.
