The German Aerospace Center (DLR) is working with Deutz to develop new hydrogen-based solutions for construction and agricultural machinery.

The duo signed an agreement on Thursday (Aug. 26) saying such efforts are part of a broader focus on “green building sites” through which they hope to transform existing technologies into ones that are carbon-free.

The news of the partnership comes shortly after Deutz presented a brand new hydrogen engine to accelerate the introduction of low-emission and zero-emission drive systems.

Prof. Dr. Karsten Lemmer, member of the DLR Executive Board, said: “In an intensive collaboration, the know-how from research and development is incorporated into new solutions for specific practical challenges.

“With formats like the DLR.InnovationHub and the resulting partnerships, DLR is fulfilling its mission to turn research into marketable innovations.”

Dr.-Ing. Markus Müller, Chief Technology Officer at DEUTZ, adds: “The cooperation agreement with DLR is an important milestone in our development activities.

“The aim is to accelerate progress in the implementation of hydrogen drives for the off-highway segment. To do this, we are bundling our know-how and our R&D skills. “
