Mounting solutions for carbon-neutral vehicles

Mounting solutions for carbon-neutral vehicles

New technologies need new solutions.

Achieving climate neutrality at a fast pace is a goal that is shared by the whole world, and because of the Paris Agreement many countries have set 2050 as the deadline for this. The rest of the world is now following the example of the EU’s sustainability agreement. Particular focus is given to transport, which is responsible for a large percentage of greenhouse emissions. This refers to more than just cars, however. After all, commercial vehicles and mobile machines also have a lot of potential for savings. Which is one of the reasons why manufacturers are opting for battery and fuel cell power. But these technologies are very demanding for the machine architecture. This calls for new solutions – including in mounting technology.

 

How our products can support you in achieving climate-neutrality.

From the combustion engine to the hydrogen powered vehicle – we can support you in achieving climate-neutral mobility and develop solutions for a better tomorrow today. Innovative mounting concepts are called for that can meet the demands of cutting-edge machine architectures. HYDAC has an extensive product portfolio of safe and certified mounting solutions for this very purpose. The products and systems we use for this have proved their worth in practice: HYDAC customers have covered 10 billion test kilometres – a testimony to our many years of expertise.

 

Tank mounting

Safe and innovative mounting of compressed-gas containers (type IV).

Let your tank breathe, we can take of the expansion. From the technological development of band straps for mounting air containers for brakes to CNG tanks and innovative solutions for hydrogen systems. Our high-quality band straps are an installation- and space-optimised mounting solution. The standard HYDAC solution, validated to ECE R 110 (CNG) and ECE-R 79 (H2), covers a large number of challenges in the mounting of compressed-gas containers.
