With the BLUEPOWER, Zöller-Kipper has developed a resource-saving battery-hydrogen vehicle for climate-neutral disposal – for a perfect, clean circular economy.

It is seen as the key to the energy revolution and the fuel of the future: hydrogen. After all, H2 is the most abundant element on earth, so supplies are guaranteed. The BLUEPOWER from Zöller-Kipper uses hydrogen fuel cell technology in combination with e-mobility. The hydrogen fuel cell acts as a range extender for the conventional battery.

In stop-and-go collective mode, an electric vehicle can cover around 160 kilometres without a charging break. Depending on the equipment, the BLUEPOWER can cover up to 300 kilometres.

An additional plus point: with a 300 kWh battery, enough for a day trip, charging takes around eleven hours with a typical device with a medium charging capacity. The refuelling stop for hydrogen is completed in under 15 minutes.

The vehicle is built on a so-called glider based on the Mercedes Benz Econic chassis. Zöller-Kipper refers to a vehicle chassis that has been specially prepared as a glider. The diesel engine, gearbox, tank and exhaust system are missing and are replaced by an electric motor, battery modules, CCS 2.0 charger, control units, high-voltage distributor, cooling elements, on-board charger, fuel cells and hydrogen tanks.
