ITALY: Nuvera, Renault form fuel cell partnership
The joint program seeks to deliver a fuel processor that can be adapted to on-board vehicle requirements for Renault by 2004.
The goal of the research programme is to enable Renault to launch a viable fuel cell vehicle by 2010.
"This is a major milestone for Nuvera and the future of fuel cell vehicles," said Roberto Cordaro, President and CEO of Nuvera Fuel Cells. "Our development efforts in fuel processing over the past few years are proving critical to the near-term commercial viability of fuel cells."
Working with automotive OEMs such as Renault, Nuvera says that it is accelerating the development and commercialisation of its automotive platform of fuel cell stacks and multi-fuel processors.
