Hyundai Motor Group establishes hydrogen fuel cell system production and sales subsidiary in Guangzhou, China
Full-fledged expansion of the hydrogen fuel cell system business in China following Korea, Europe, and the US
[The story of the case / Reporter Moon Hong-cheol] = The Hyundai Motor Group is expanding its hydrogen fuel cell system business in China, following Korea, Europe, and the United States.
Hyundai Motor Group announced on the 15th that it has signed an investment contract to establish a hydrogen fuel cell system production and sales subsidiary with the Guangzhou Development Zone government in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China. The event included Guangdong relations such as Lin Keqing, Guangdong Provincial Ministry of Commerce Growth, Guangdong Provincial Director General Jang Jin-song, and Lee Kwang-guk, president of Hyundai Motor Group's China business, and Hyundai Motor Group China Co., Ltd. Vice-president Lee Hyuk-jun, executive vice president, attended.
This investment contract is meaningful in that Hyundai Motor Group will establish its first overseas production base for hydrogen fuel cell systems in China, which is promoting “hydrogen excavation,” to solidify its position as a leading company in the hydrogen field.
Hyundai Motor Group's annual global supply of 700,000 hydrogen fuel cell systems in 2030
Hyundai Motor Group plans to further expand its global business with the establishment of a production base in China, and supply about 700,000 units of hydrogen fuel cell systems to the world by 2030 per year. Prior to this, Hyundai Motor Group signed an eco-friendly powertrain joint development agreement with Cummins in the U.S. in 2019, starting with a fuel cell technology partnership with Audi in 2018 in the field of hydrogen fuel cell system business, and an energy solution startup with a European hydrogen storage technology company in 2020. It has started exporting to.
The new subsidiary will be established with a 100% stake in Hyundai Motor Group. After signing an MOU with the government of Guangdong Province in China in connection with the establishment of a corporation in December 2019, Hyundai Motor Group has conducted pre-market research to enter the Chinese hydrogen fuel cell system market and selected sites for the construction of production facilities. The city and the details have been discussed.
Hyundai Motor Group's hydrogen fuel cell system production base in China is scheduled to start at the end of February 2020 and produce 6,500 units per year from the second half of 2022. It mainly produces the hydrogen fuel cell system installed in the hydrogen electric vehicle Nexo, and plans to sequentially expand its supply capacity in accordance with the Chinese central government policy and market conditions.
The Hyundai Motor Group is preoccupying the Chinese hydrogen market, which is expected to accelerate growth under the strong leadership of the central government with the world-class hydrogen fuel cell system mass production technology that it has already secured, including eco-friendly vehicles, hydrogen electric vehicles, and commercial hydrogen vehicles. Is the plan.
China promotes supply of 1 million hydrogen electric vehicles by 2035
In October 2020, the China Automobile Engineering Society, which is an advisory body for automobile-related policies of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of China, announced the'Energy Saving and Eco-friendly Vehicle Technology Roadmap 2.0', and by 2035, It proposed a policy that the sales portion of energy-saving vehicles (hybrid cars, fuel-efficient cars, etc.) should be 50% each.
In particular, the roadmap includes a specific goal of supplying up to 1 million hydrogen electric vehicles, mainly commercial vehicles, by 2035, giving a glimpse of the atmosphere of fostering the hydrogen industry in China. In addition, from 2021 to 2025, China's “14th Five-Year Economic Development Plan” is in progress, and China's expansion of the supply of eco-friendly cars is also expected to accelerate.
The Chinese government is actively attracting major foreign companies to develop hydrogen electric vehicle technology and foster the market. Accordingly, global companies are actively moving to preoccupy an early position in the newly opened China's huge hydrogen market.
Since Toyota built a hydrogen charging station in Jiangsu Province, China in 2017, it has been continuously promoting market entry through cooperation with leading companies in China. In June of last year, it established a R&D joint venture in Beijing in cooperation with China's Ewha Tong Hydrogen Fuel Cell System Group, DI Automobile Group, Guangzhou Automobile Group, Beijing Automobile Group and Dongfeng Automobile Group.
Global companies such as Ballard Power Systems of Canada, Bosch and SFC Energy of Germany and Ceres Power of the UK are also rapidly entering the hydrogen fuel cell system business in China. Fierce competition to secure technological leadership is expected in the future.
Expected synergies through extensive infrastructure utilization in Guangdong, China's economic hub
Guangdong Province, where Hyundai Motor Group's first overseas hydrogen fuel cell system production base was built, was the first place where China's reform and opening policy began 40 years ago, and is the economic center of China's No. 1 GDP ranking.
Guangdong Province is continuously promoting local government-level policy efforts to foster the hydrogen industry. In November 2020, the company announced a plan to promote the implementation of the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle industry in Guangdong Province, and disclosed specific goals to strengthen the competitiveness of the hydrogen industry by utilizing industrial complexes, R&D facilities, and related value chain industrial bases in Guangdong Province.
In addition, it has also announced a pilot operation plan for various hydrogen businesses, such as ships, home hydrogen fuel cells, and emergency power systems, centering on commercial logistics vehicles, which is suitable as a bridgehead for Hyundai Motor Group's entry into the Chinese hydrogen market.
The Hyundai Motor Group mass-produced the world's first hydrogen electric vehicle Tucson ix35 in 2013, and after mass-producing the 2nd generation hydrogen electric vehicle Nexo in 2018, it achieved global cumulative sales of 10,000 units in July 2020. This is the largest sales volume among hydrogen electric vehicles of global automobile companies, and the hydrogen fuel cell system technology, which is the basis for it, is evaluated as the world's best.
Based on such technological competitiveness, Hyundai Motor Group is expected to be able to secure a stable sales base from the beginning of local subsidiary establishment by directly participating in various hydrogen industry development pilot projects promoted by Guangdong Province through mutual cooperation with major Chinese companies. Are doing.
In addition, in preparation for the expansion of the hydrogen fuel cell system supply expansion project from a pilot project led by the Chinese government to a self-competitive system, it has mass production capabilities, and has established a strategic partnership with the front and rear companies related to the hydrogen industry in China to establish a strong market dominance throughout China. I plan to keep it.
Meanwhile, Hyundai Motor Group is investing a total of 7.6 trillion won in Korea to build a broad hydrogen industry ecosystem according to the'FCEV (hydrogen electric vehicle) vision 2030' announced in 2018 as planned. In the future, the company will continue to strengthen its world-class technological advantage by expanding the lineup of next-generation hydrogen fuel cell systems such as high-power systems and lightweight high-density systems through new technology development.
