Autonomy thanks to locally and sustainably produced hydrogen
and hydrogen generators

Autonomy and sustainability

As a technology partner to the Swiss Army, RUAG is striving to develop an energy self-sufficiency concept in order to maximize the defense capability of the Army and other security organizations. Alongside the focus on self-sufficiency, resilience, sustainability, and efficiency, the company is seeking to contribute to the fulfillment of climate objectives.

The Hybrid APU is an innovative power generator. At its core is a powerful and robust fuel cell that generates electrical energy directly from hydrogen, and a high-performance battery. This combination makes it possible to produce energy with minimal waste heat and noise. These are significant tactical advantages in military environments and civilian applications.

With Green Hydrogen, RUAG offers solutions for local production, storage, distribution and long-term supply of hydrogen together with a strong network of partners. This ecosystem enables the production and use of hydrogen as an essential fuel of the future. This will be done locally, autonomously and sustainably.
