Premiere at Hannover Messe 2019: Ecoport 800 to be integrated into a MOKE

As part of an application project, the Ecoport 800 will be installed in a vehicle for the first time. Not just any vehicle, but a MOKE. You don’t know what a MOKE is? A MOKE looks like this:

Originally based on a design of the British Motor Corporation and marketed under the name Mini Moke – “Mini” like the car and “Moke”, an old English word for donkey – the vehicle was developed as an economical and low-maintenance utility vehicle. The MOKE was used as a beach vehicle in Australia, the USA, France and tropical holiday resorts.

Professor Dipl.-Ing. Wolf Burger, Head of Mechanical Engineering at the Duale Hochschule Baden-Wuerttemberg, wanted to find out how to electrify such a vehicle. Since he owns a MOKE himself and also has access to enthusiastic students, the prerequisites were given for starting the development project. The only thing missing was the fuel cell. Siqens was more than happy to supply it. As a Methanol fuel cell, the Ecoport 800 is an ideal range extender for different utility and commercial vehicles.

Siqens will present this pilot project in words and pictures at the joint Baden-Württemberg stand and together with Professor Burger.

Visit us from 1 – 5 April 2019 in Hall 2, Stand A18 at the Research & Technology, Hannover Messe. Professor Burger and staff from Siqens are open for your questions. Here, you can find out when the first road trips will take place.
