Tier 1 supplier BorgWarner is expanding its efforts in the hydrogen combustion space and has been awarded its first hydrogen injection system production program for an off-road application by a European construction equipment manufacturer.
The company says this quick-to-market technology supports CO2-free mobility and offers appealing TCO due to optimised energy efficiency and payload capacity as well as short refuelling time.
Davide Girelli, VP and GM, BorgWarner Fuel Injection Systems said, “This business win strengthens the longstanding relationship with our customer. We’re glad to provide them with the full hydrogen injection system, including fuel injectors, rail, electronic control unit and system integration, BorgWarner’s offerings in the electric mobility segment have increased immensely in the last few years. Investing in the development of hydrogen applications is a further step toward creating a broad portfolio of clean and efficient propulsion technology.”
Hydrogen technology is a quick-to-market propulsion solution that requires only slight adjustments to the traditional IC-engine. As hydrogen has a substantially lower density than gasoline and diesel, the engine’s injection system needs a new solution to meet fuelling and packaging requirements. BorgWarner says it builds on years of experience in the field of injection systems and is actively working on hydrogen components for low, medium and high-pressure environments, including port fuel injection and direct injection solutions.
