Arcola Energy is now Ballard Motive Solutions
Full powertrain integration capability to accelerate the adoption of fuel cell mobility
A leader in hydrogen and fuel cell integration
Ballard and Arcola Energy have joined forces to create Ballard Motive Solutions (BMS), a supplier of complete powertrain systems that decrease complexity and development time for fuel cell electric vehicles, increase production volumes and lower cost and time-to-market.
BMS works with some of the most progressive authorities, fleet operators and OEMs to meet their zero-emission targets.
BMS extends Ballard’s core fuel cell module to include intelligent energy systems for zero-emission heavy-duty mobility.
Our proven A-Drive technology platform optimizes the fuel cell system integration with hydrogen storage, batteries, power conditioning devices, cooling systems and controls into vehicle powertrain.
Net-zero carbon emission targets around the world have demanded a universal re-think for the future of transport. Decarbonising the industry requires an integrated approach that can tailor solutions across specialised markets.
Ballard Motive Solutions has established strong modelling and design capabilities that combine a deep understanding of the underlying electrochemistry with powertrain engineering expertise and validation from real-world trials across all transport sectors.
Hydrogen trains are leading candidates to replace diesel propulsion for rail lines that cannot be electrified. High energy storage density and fast refuelling times mean that fuel cell powertrain technology can offer a drop-in replacement for diesel trains.
Ballard Motive Solutions' integrated and optimised hybrid powertrain for buses provides manufacturers with complete system design and integration. Our solutions offer whole life-cycle service and support focused on quality, safety and compliance.
Commercial vehicles have heavy duty cycles, running all day covering many miles with full loads. Fuel cell hydrogen powertrains provide zero-emissions operations for fleets of vehicles that can complete a full shift without compromising on range or performance.
