FORVIA to supply Type IV hydrogen storage systems for heavy-duty commercial vehicles in the North America

FORVIA, the 7th_largest automotive technology supplier, has been awarded a contract from a major clean energy technology company to supply Type IV hydrogen storage systems for heavy-duty commercial vehicles in the North American market, with production starting in 2025. This is the second award for hydrogen storage solutions acquired by FORVIA in North America this year and demonstrates FORVIA’s expansion in this important hydrogen market.

Earlier this year Stellantis joined FORVIA and Michelin as an equity partner in Symbio, a world leader in the development and production of fuel cells. “With Symbio and FORVIA’s hydrogen storage systems we cover 75% of the hydrogen drive train value and plan to reach a combined turnover of € 3.5 bn by 2030” the company stated.

Symbio North America has swiftly established itself in the North American market since Q2 of 2021. Symbio has had notable successes in sustainable transportation including, the Symbio H2 Central Valley Express project, a heavy-duty fuel cell truck demonstration, highlighting the reliability of Symbio’s fuel cell technology for regional transport. In addition, in May 2023, Symbio inaugurated a new facility in Temecula for hydrogen fuel cell vehicle power systems and assembly, aiming to produce next-gen systems. Both projects are supported by the California Energy Commission, aligning with Symbio’s commitment to California’s carbon neutrality goal by 2045.
