The DESTA SOFC APU
The DESTA Truck

The SOFC APU developed in DESTA provides among others the following main advantages:

  • Efficiency > 30% 
  • Fuel consumption: 1/5 compared to truck idling leading to cost reduction
  • Low noise emissions: No cyclical combustion, no low-frequency vibrations
  • Low pollutant emissions

In DESTA, the APU systems developed by CCES and AVL will be combined to a "best-of" solution for integration a VOLVO truck for the US market.
