John Deere Fuel Cell Hybrid CWV (Commercial Work Vehicle)

The CWV is equipped with a Hydrogenics fuel cell supplying 20 kW of electric power. Thereby, a pure electric drive system was put into practice. By the use of a centralized belt drive system, a centralized cooling system and an independent component management a large reduction of internal energy consumption is anticipated, since components like the alternator, the engine coolant fan or the engine oil pump became dispensable.
