A new agreement revealed today (Feb 2) between KEYOU and HOERBIGER is aiming to jointly development, produce and commercialise innovative injector technologies for hydrogen engines. These PFI injector system will be focusing on the heavy-duty range of engines and will support the rapid decarbonisation of the mobility industry as well as other industrial purposes.
The agreement will pool the collective knowledge and expertise of the two companies, both prominent in the hydrogen sector, and will look to accelerate the hydrogen engine market.
A key aspect of injector technologies is the durability and thus this is one of the crucial factors in creating more efficient hydrogen engines.
KEYOU has said that it has succeeded in developing the “world’s most efficient hydrogen engine” to date from a diesel engine platform.
On the other hand, HOERBIGER, one of the leading manufacturers of valve technology in the gas industry, has made decarbonisation a central goal of its product developments.
Thomas Korn, co-founder and CEO of KEYOU, said, “The injector is one of the key components of our ‘KEYOU-inside system’, which can be integrated into new and existing engines, for example, if, in addition to the development of new engines, the conversion of existing diesel vehicles for hydrogen is also considered, decarbonisation in the commercial vehicle sector can be achieved quickly and cost- effectively.
“With HOERBIGER, we have a competent development partner with many years of experience in the development, production, and commercialisation of gas valves at our side.
“For us as an innovation driver in the field of hydrogen engines, this perfectly complements our knowledge and expertise in the field of hydrogen technologies.”
