The export falls in line with South Korean government's plan to promote hydrogen fuel cell systems as a new key export product, adding to exports of hydrogen fuel cell electric passenger and commercial vehicles.

GRZ, a company that specializes in energy storage in the form of hydrogen, plans to use the system to produce a stationary power supply system to be used for building electricity at peak times.

GRZ has the technology to store about five to 10 times more hydrogen than in a normal hydrogen storage tank at a lower pressure of less than 30 bar versus 200 to 500 bar.

"It is expected that this technology will be used in various ways through cooperation between the two companies in the future," Hyundai Motor said.

Following the inaugural shipment, the South Korean carmaker aims to export more hydrogen fuel cell systems to global markets such as the US and China.

Also, Hyundai Motor said it began shipping its fuel cell system to an undisclosed energy solutions startup that produces electric generators. The startup will use Hyundai's system to produce mobile hydrogen generators.

Hyundai Motor Group aims to produce 700,000 units/year of fuel cell systems for use in cars and for non-automotive sectors such as vessels, rail cars, drones and power generators by 2030.
