Gersthofen, Bavaria, Germany, 2022/12/21 - As experts for sustainable mobility, Quantron AG is a recipient of the Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award in the category "European Heavy-Duty Fuel-Cell Trucking New Product Innovation" - Frost.com / Quantron.net.
• QUANTRON is a prizewinner in the category "European Heavy-Duty Fuel-Cell Trucking New Product Innovation";
• The award honours Quantron AG's comprehensive hydrogen concept which includes FCEV vehicles as well as after-sales services along with the tank infrastructure through Quantron-as-a-Service.
Frost & Sullivan (frost.com) has been supporting global companies for six decades now in order to advance and showcase new technologies, megatrends and business models. The Best Practices Award honours companies that offer innovative products or solutions to important customer problems. The award recognises QUANTRON's integrated and holistic hydrogen concept.
Hydrogen-based ecosystems for sustainable freight transport represent a future-oriented opportunity for zero-emission mobility both in terms of technology and mass-marketing. Quantron's own ecosystem, Quantron-as-a-Service, includes both the QUANTRON CUSTOMER SOLUTIONS area with physical and digital after-sales services and QUANTRON ENERGY which ensures the generation and provision of green energy and green hydrogen as well as the appropriate infrastructure network.
In addition to fully electric commercial vehicles, QUANTRON also focuses on fuel cell-powered vehicles. With a 54 kg H2 tank fully integrated into the chassis, the QUANTRON QHM FCEV heavy truck can cover a distance of up to 700 km with one filling whilst transporting a maximum payload. In the QUANTRON QHM FCEV 44-2000 version, the truck stands out from its competitors through its extraordinarily large tank volume of up to 116 kg. This means that ranges of up to 1500 km are possible with a single H2 tank filling. Other products under development include 4.2 t and 7.2 t FCEV trucks as well as 6x2 truck tractor units and a refuse collection vehicle. As a result, Quantron AG is able to serve important market needs very effectively.
Michael Perschke, CEO of QUANTRON AG: “The Best Practices Award is a recognition of the activities of the entire Quantron team and our partners during this past year. Our goal is to become one of the leading companies in the field of zero-emission vehicles thus making our contribution to a sustainable and carbon-neutral future. In order to achieve this, we in the Hydrogen Alliance work closely with global partners such as Ballard Power Systems and NEUMAN & ESSER.”
Anil Reddi, Director of Quantron-as-a-Service: “We are delighted to be recognised by Frost & Sullivan. Quantron-as-a-Service is a product tailored for and with the customer, aiming to become the new standard when it comes to improving efficiency in day-to-day trucking operations, whilst keeping operating costs transparent and predictable for our customers.”
