YC SYNERGY (YCS) launched their fourth generation product "MB-209" series Fuel Cell Power module this month. Which is completely integrated for commercial vehicle application including trucks, buses, and industrial vehicles. This brand new model starts shipping to customers for trail this month.
Each MB-209 unit is designed for 15KW rated power. With multiple module connection, it can enlarge the power range. The total system footprint is less than 150 Liter with all-in-one BOP integration, which makes MB-209 the most complete product among the similar range peers. This brand new model successfully integrates all 8 necessary sub-systems/functions in an easy-to-install box, including fuel cell stacks, fuel system, air compression system, communication tool, power conditioning, thermal control system, noise reduction parts, and safety protection. Different from the existing solution in the market, which requires the powertrain integrators lots of effort to assemble many scattered parts before adopting the fuel cell technology, MB-209 's engine-like design allows fast integration, installation and easy maintenance. Therefore it shortens customers' time-to-market and meanwhile improved volume production consistency.
YCS utilized their experience of previous 3 generations, and with complete flow dynamic expertise, to achieve excellent performance of MB-209. It's stack fuel utilization up to 98%, over 44% energy conversion rate for the entire system, less than 0.8 cubic meter of fuel consumption per kilo watt-hour output in static air injection scenario, 150 Amps per second power dynamic capability and complete protection mechanism for 15,000 hours of operation life. And for the easiness of vehicle integration, it complies with SAE communication protocol and quick connection hardware interface. It also possesses shock and vibration robustness and high efficiency air-cleaning mechanism for the rugged environment.
"Our new model will speed up the fuel cell technology penetration in vehicle market, as we design and upgrade our product from the understanding of users' actual needs. No matter in function, reliability, cost, or commercial viability, we spent lots of time listen to our customers and gather the first hand opinions from them. And as COP 21 starts effective this November, the green vehicle market will soar and fuel cell will definitely take an important position in that. However, our MB-209 has proven it's market potential right after launched. Or more precisely, it is designed to satisfy some customer's specific request. It has been adopted by vehicle market and hopefully, before the end of this year, 4 vehicle models will begin integration with our new product. YC SYNERGY will continue connecting the fuel cell technology with the real world application and to become the key partner for our customers in their zero-emission vehicle roadmap. Now we are preparing for our next challenge, which is the volume production!" said Mark Huang, CEO of YCS.
