Zepp Solutions unveils X150, a new 150kW fuel cell system.

The new fuel cell system X150 is made for heavy-duty applications. Zepp Solutions will use the X150 in its hydrogen-electric trailer tractor, DREAMH2AUL.

Netherlands-based fuel cell system developer Zepp Solutions has unveiled a new 150 kW fuel cell system called the X150.

The new fuel cell system is made for heavy-duty applications and is available in different configurations for rooftop, engine bay, or machine room applications. Multiple units of this system can be connected in parallel to serve applications up to megawatt scale.

The X150 is an upgrade from the 50 kW Zepp.Y50 module. It offers a significantly decreased cost per kW and a 25% bump in power density compared to the Zepp.Y50 module.

All control and subsystems required to turn hydrogen into high voltage electrical power are integrated into the module. As a completely integrated solution, the Zepp.X150 fuel cell system is an ideal drop-in module. To further minimize engineering efforts and costs in the integration process on the application side, the integrated DCDC converter can be directly connected to the vehicle’s DC power bus.

Zepp solutions use a unique platform approach in the development of their systems that allows them to integrate newly available technology or components quicker than competitors. Combined with the advanced in-house developed control software, this results in systems with a higher power density than other turnkey modules on the market, making the X150 the clear choice for heavy-duty OEMs, machine manufacturers, and shipyards.

The company has already received multiple pre-orders of the X150. Zepp will also use this fuel cell system in its hydrogen-electric trailer tractor, DREAMH2AUL.

The truck features 50 kg of hydrogen storage at 350 bars to ensure a range of up to 800 km while still providing sleeping arrangements for the driver. This makes it the first 350 bar hydrogen-electric semi-truck able to tow the standard ISO trailers (45ft / 13.6m) without exceeding the European length restrictions.

Currently, 350 bar refueling is the European standard for heavy-duty hydrogen vehicles. The first two of these trucks have been ordered by Dutch companies Vos Transport and BCTN Group. Delivery is scheduled for 2023.

Pre-orders of the new X150 module begin today. The deliveries will begin in mid-2023.
