NH2 Hydrogen Tractor





From its origins, New Holland is characterized for making farming activity easier and more efficient, through innovative and affordable products, aimed to simplify people's life and to allow them to do more with less. This pioneering spirit had led us to look always further, anticipating the evolution of farming in an ever changing scenario.

The current situation.

Fuel and energy represent a large amount of the farmers input costs. Farmers are scattered and dispersed around the country. Therefore, the costs of bringing fuel and energy are also very high.

What do the farmers need?

 Farmers need to minimize their risks and keep their operating costs low. They need stability and independence to better control their business operation.

What do the farmers have?

 Farmers normally have a large amount of available space. And a large amount of resources that can be used to produce energy.

The New Holland solution

 The Energy Independent Farm is a new approach, where farmers will be able to generate their own energy to run their farm and agricultural equipment.

And all of this will be done using Hydrogen, 100% generated from renewable resources, which farmers have plenty of.


The basis:

 A current T6000 tractor.

What is inside?

  •  A Hydrogen tank
  • Fuel Cells System perfectly integrated into production tractor, with standard components
  • Electric motor n° 1 - Power to traction
  • Electric motor n° 2 - Power to PTO and auxiliaries

What is not?

  •  No diesel tank
  • No combustion engine
  • No exhaust pipe
  • No gear box


How it works

  • Fuel Cells System transforms Hydrogen into electricity that runs the two motors.
    The tractor has zero emissions. Only a little amount of water, in the form of steam, is produced by the Fuel Cells System.

Product specification

  •  Power: 75 kW (106 hp)
  • Transmission: CVT through electrical motor
  • PTO : CVT through electrical motor

Product Benefits

  •  No Noise - Greater operator’s comfort
  • No Emissions
  • No gears, no power losses
  • Power delivered only as needed

Improvement Opportunities

  •  Fewer design and architecture constraints - A new tractor design
  • Less weight and components - Greater reliability due to fewer moving parts
  • Replace hydraulic system and mechanical drives with electrical ones: electrical driven implements (planters, fertilizer spreaders, etc)
