PUNCH and Tecnogen current hydrogen-engine generator with built-in F1-derived flywheel system


PUNCH Group and Tecnogen (a part of Bruno Mills Group) is presenting a hydrogen engine generator with an built-in flywheel system at bauma. A hydrogen engine by PUNCH Hydrocells is mixed with a Flywheel Energy System by PUNCH Flybrid. These parts are built-in right into a generator set developed in collaboration with Tecnogen.


The PUNCH hydrogen engine is ready to obtain a most energy of 250kW at 3000 rpm in marine, cellular off-highway in addition to on-highway purposes. This particular energy of 38 kW per Liter has been achieved with port gasoline injection mixed with an revolutionary PUNCH combustion system for prime effectivity.

Within the generator software it achieves a 100kW (Prime Rated Energy – PRP) at 1500 rpm and 110 kW (PRP) at 1800rpm. The hydrogen engine is managed by a proprietary PUNCH management unit.

Interesting product value versus different inexperienced applied sciences, functionality to function at heavy obligation circumstances in harsh environments and tolerance to low purity hydrogen are key benefits.

Initially developed for Method One Racing, PUNCH Flybrid merchandise now allow generator set downsizing for dynamic purposes equivalent to tower cranes, chillers, rock sizers, hoists, mast climbers and pumps. The flywheel system boosts the height efficiency and considerably improves the load response of the generator. Consequently, gasoline & emission financial savings of greater than 50% are achieved in dynamic purposes. If mixed with hydrogen expertise, the emissions are decreased near zero, supporting the efforts of the development trade to achieve Internet Zero.

The Tecnogen generator is characterised by means of VSi (Variable Velocity Inverter) expertise, acknowledged with European patent n. 2754872, and for the robustness and compactness typical of the Tecnogen FUSTEQ collection.

This expertise permits a major discount in consumption in addition to a low noise stage.

The generator is provided with a DSE8610MKII management unit for synchronising & load sharing and due to this fact might be synchronized with as much as 32 different mills. It delivers an influence of 105kVA (PRP) at 50Hz and 120kVA at 60Hz.
