Dr. Gackstatter Uwe, President of the Bosch Powertrain Solutions Division, said: "Hydrogen fuel cells have the advantages of zero emissions, high energy conversion efficiency, and diverse fuel sources, and are one of the ultimate technical routes for new energy vehicles. As the first Bosch Group in The foundation stone of the Bosch Wuxi Hydrogen Fuel Cell Center established outside Germany is another key strategic move for Bosch to lay out the automotive fuel cell market and actively promote its commercialization. "
Fuel cell systems have the advantages of light weight, long cruising range, short fuel replenishment time, and zero driving emissions. They are especially suitable for medium and heavy commercial vehicles that require long-distance driving. In the field of fuel cells, Bosch has deep industry experience and research and development capabilities. Based on key component systems including fuel cells and other fuel cells, by providing comprehensive system engineering services, Bosch can help hydrogen fuel engine and vehicle manufacturers to improve system performance and reliability while further reducing the system and Vehicle cost, which promotes the industrialization of fuel cells.
The new hydrogen fuel cell center established in Wuxi this time will be mainly used for research and development and trial production of hydrogen fuel cell powertrain-related products, with all test equipment from key components to power stacks and even fuel cell systems, as well as trial stack production lines . The center will be completed by the end of 2020, and small-scale production is planned for 2021. This will further strengthen Bosch's local R & D and manufacturing capabilities in China, which will serve the Chinese market more quickly and flexibly. At the same time, Bosch's strategic cooperation with customers in different market segments has also been fully launched.
