August 11, 2021 – Hyundai Motor Co. signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Hyundai Electric & Energy Systems Co.  to develop a hydrogen fuel cell package for mobile power generation.

The system is expected to be a “game changer in the mobile generator market, which is currently dominated by diesel generators”. The partners say that environmentally friendly, distributed power solutions like the one planned can address carbon-neutral electric needs in a variety of industrial sectors such as construction sites, industrial complexes, and port facilities.

The endeavor combines Hyundai Motor’s fuel cell experience with Hyundai Electric’s power equipment expertise to develop a package based on Hyundai Motor’s polymer electrolyte membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) system.

Under the agreement, Hyundai Motor will supply PEMFC fuel cell systems and provide technical support while Hyundai Electric will develop and commercialize a fuel cell-based power generation package, which includes mobile generators and AMP supply systems.

Hyundai Electric will also explore a variety of business models for marketing the new package in Korea and abroad.
