As part of the first Tech Day, Quantron AG gave investors, politicians, press representatives and industry experts a comprehensive overview of developments in zero-emission drive systems. QUANTRON also announced the appointment of CTO René Wollmann to the Management Board of Quantron AG.

The event opened with the presentation of a white paper entitled “BEV or FCEV? The complementary roles of battery and fuel cell electric trucks”. To date, it is the most comprehensive analysis of the current status of battery-electric and fuel cell-based drive systems in the commercial vehicle sector. The white paper was presented by Dr. Srinath Rengarajan, Senior Manager Corporate & Portfolio Strategy at QUANTRON. He summarised his scientific analysis as follows: “Until now, there have been many dogmatic discussions based on narrowly defined or limited analyses. However, a holistic view shows that both BEV and FCEV technologies are required for the earliest possible realisation of emission-free transport solutions. Ultimately, the requirements of the end customers along with specific use cases decide on the most suitable solution.

CTO René Wollmann then gave an insight into the special features of the QUANTRON development DNA and its goals of combining the latest technologies with maximum customer benefit and maximum efficiency using the example of the heavy truck portfolio.

For us, innovation means the adaptation and integration of trend-setting and efficient technologies in forward-looking and, above all, customer-focused solutions in the transport sector,” says René Wollmann. “Through our own in-house ‘think tank’ and development competence, of which we are very proud, and the close cooperation with global technology partners, we are well positioned to be able to offer and deliver unique products to our customers. For example, our QUANTRON QHM as BEV and FCEV are scheduled to enter the market in the course of 2023 and can be considered a real game changer in the heavy truck class.

As a globally expanding company, Quantron AG will be presenting zero-emission vehicles for the important US market for the first time this year, starting with a Class 8 heavy-duty truck complete with hydrogen drive for long-distance tours.

Michael Perschke, CEO QUANTRON AG: “In order to find a solution to decarbonise the transport sector, it is not enough to limit yourself to vehicle development. It has to be thought through in holistic terms. This is why we have set up Quantron-as-a-Service together with our partners such as Ballard Power Systems and NEUMAN & ESSER – a platform that combines all the building blocks required for sustainable mobility. In the medium term, this should also be open to other OEMs.

With this approach, the recently received Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award proves that QUANTRON is already one of the pioneers in the field of sustainable transport. This was awarded to honour QUANTRON’s holistic hydrogen concept in the “European Heavy-Duty Fuel-Cell Trucking New Product Innovation” category. Previous winners of the Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Award include Bosch and Siemens Energy.
