Hyliion and BayoTech partner to advance sustainable power

Hyliion and BayoTech partner to provide sustainable power with hydrogen hubs and the Karno generator

April 30, 2024
The companies have entered into an agreement to support the advancement of sustainable power generation using hydrogen.

Hyliion, a developer of sustainable electricity-producing technology, and BayoTech, an innovator in hydrogen production, transportation, and storage solutions, recently partnered to offer comprehensive power solutions to their existing and future customers. The partnership will allow the companies to introduce their solutions to each other's customer bases.

The companies have entered into an agreement to support the advancement of sustainable power generation using hydrogen. Hyliion's Karno generator, which can operate on multiple fuel types including hydrogen, is designed for a variety of applications such as prime power, renewables matching, and energy arbitrage. BayoTech’s BayoGaaS hydrogen production hubs and its high-pressure transport trailers and storage units aim to ensure a reliable hydrogen supply chain for customers. This partnership will enhance the product offerings of both companies, supporting the shift toward more sustainable power solutions across industries.

"Hydrogen holds great potential as a zero-carbon energy source, yet its widespread adoption faces infrastructural challenges,” said Thomas Healy, founder and CEO of Hyliion. “Companies like BayoTech solve this problem, allowing customers to use hydrogen in their operations today. Our collaboration will provide a comprehensive solution in the future tailored to customers' needs, accelerating a faster adoption of new power generation technologies.”

Hyliion's Karno generator is currently undergoing advanced stages of development and is slated for field deployment with early adopter customers in the latter half of 2024. 

At the 2023 ACT Expo, Hyliion showcased its Hypertruck Karno. This semi-truck employs an electric range extender powertrain that can be refueled with both hydrogen and natural gas. The Karno generator is expected to show an improvement in fuel efficiency and a lower emissions profile versus conventional generators. According to Hyliion, it will also be capable of operating on more than 20 different fuels, including hydrogen, natural gas, propane, ammonia, and conventional fuels.
