RETROFIT

Hydrogen bus retrofitting

Our extensive experience in the renovation of transport equipment, combined with our expertise in electric hydrogen motors, led us to design the first retrofit kit for coaches.

As these vehicles require a very long range, hydrogen is a particularly relevant solution. Retrofitting coaches is also perfectly in line with the energy transition strategy, as it extends the vehicles’ lifespan. It is the ideal solution for sustainable mobility

H2-PACK retrofit kit

Transformation of Diesel vehicles into zero emission Hydrogen vehicles.

The concept of our retrofit kit consists in replacing the thermal drive train by a 100% electric drive train powered by a hydrogen fuel cell.

Our retrofit kits proposed in pre-marketing are the result of the first experimentation work currently carried out on coaches in the Occitania region.

Approval of transformations according to the technical and administrative provisions of the order of March 13, 2020

The main principles of coach retrofit :

  • Removal of the engine, tanks…
  • Installation of a new energy chain, in compliance with regulatory constraints
  • Connection to the existing traction chain
  • Integration of new computers and software
  • Interfacing with existing equipment
  • Approval of the transformations according to the technical and administrative provisions of the order of March 13, 2020
