San Diego, California – Symbio, a Michelin and Faurecia joint-venture for hydrogen fuel cell stacks systems, has entered the US market as part of its mid-term growth strategy.
The company has established Symbio North America and named Rob Del Core as its general manager, Symbio said in a 25 Aug statement.
Del Core, it said, “is a seasoned visionary zero emission leader with a successful track-record in the hydrogen fuel cell industry over the last 20 years.”
Symbio will offer its H2Motive portfolio, covering 40-kW all the way to 300-kW, which it said can meet "a wide range of duty-cycles, power and durability requirements of the US transportation market."
For the US market in particular, Symbio will focus on light duty, commercial medium and heavy-duty vehicles offering customised hydrogen solutions to vehicle OEMs and fleet partners.
The 150-kW product, which it will be exhibiting at the the San Diego ACT Expo later this month, is particularly adapted for pick-ups as well as light, medium and heavy-duty vehicles.
Symbio said it is entering the US market “with strong established assets, technology and know-how,” drawing on the combined experience, financial strength and technical/commercial support of its parent companies.
The expansion into the US will support Symbio's medium-term growth strategy, which aims to produce 200,000 hydrogen stackpacks annually by 2030.
