    Not the EU. The market is mostly outside of NATzO.

    Sorokin's Hydrogen: how GAZ sees the development of volatile gas technologies. 

    In one of the reviews of the Komtrans exhibition in Moscow, we talked about prototypes of promising hydrogen buses with fuel cells — over time they should replace the current electric buses. One of these machines was presented by the GAZ Group, but later its president Vadim Sorokin told about the prospects and alternative developments in the hydrogen field.

    The main task of equipping electric vehicles with hydrogen installations is to increase the power reserve between recharges. And in theory, installing an electrochemical generator with fuel cells that recharges batteries on the go looks like a simple and attractive solution to this problem. But it is worth digging deeper — and the advantage of this technology is not so obvious anymore.

    Its first disadvantage is a large chain of all systems and their complexity. We fill the hydrogen into the cylinders, it enters the fuel cells, which, in turn, recharge the battery, which feeds the electric motor with energy — and only it drives the wheels. Each of the links in this chain requires its own electronic control units, it is necessary to coordinate their work — and, of course, you need to carry all this with you, taking away space from passengers and cargo.

    Of course, a vehicle with such a set of technological equipment costs a lot. How much? According to Sorokin, if an ordinary diesel city bus now costs about 12 million, and an electric bus based on it will cost about 36 million, then the cost of a similar water bus will easily exceed the mark of 100 million. If such a sum is feasible for a rich Moscow, then it is unlikely that they will even look at such expensive equipment in the regions. Moreover, if we imagine the future mass transition to fuel cells as a fait accompli — where to put large-scale production and developments in the field of conventional internal combustion engines and, for example, gearboxes? There is no answer to this question now.

    That is why they are working on GAZ not only on their own fuel-element hydrogen bus, but also on traditional technology — when hydrogen, mixed with oxygen, is burned in a conventional piston engine. This idea is not new: at different times, manufacturers have already tried to build similar units, which, however, require special study. The heat of combustion of hydrogen is three times greater than that of gasoline, and this entails additional problems with detonation, and materials need more heat-resistant.

    Not so long ago, we wrote that MAN is currently working on the creation of a "hydrogen internal combustion engine" — well, now GAZ will be her company. It is assumed that a bus with such an engine will be 2.5 times cheaper than a hydrogen bus with fuel cells and one and a half times cheaper than a traditional electric bus with batteries.

    It is clear that creating such an engine is not an easy task. At the same KAMAZ, they are skeptical about the initiatives of their competitor — and they themselves are working on fuel cells. However, at the Comtrans exhibition, Sorokin said that the first experimental hydrogen engines should appear before the end of this year, and the calibrated unit in the bus will be presented in 2023.

    More than 5,8 thousand ambulances and school buses will arrive in the Russian regions.

    The Russian government has adopted an order according to which emergency medical vehicles and school buses will be delivered to the regions in 2021. All the equipment is highly localized and produced at the GAZ, PAZ and UAZ enterprises, the press service of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation reports.

    In total, 1624 ambulances of classes B and C, as well as 4187 school buses will be delivered to the Russian regions in 2021. From the reserve fund of the Russian government, 5.6 billion and 9.7 billion rubles are provided for this, respectively.

    "The program of updating the fleet of ambulances and school buses is an effective measure both for the development of transport infrastructure in the regions and for supporting Russian car manufacturers. Ulyanovsk Automobile Plant has included the order of the Ministry of Industry and Trade in the production plan" – Adil Shirinov, General Director of UAZ, said.

    Borisov: the industry will be able to replace most of the imported scarce automotive components. 

    The Russian industry will not be able to replace all the scarce automotive components due to a lack of competencies for some products, but most of them will be able to. This opinion was expressed to journalists by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov on the sidelines of the Tyumen Oil and Gas Forum.

    "Will the Russian industry be able to replace it? Potentially, it will be able to. Not on the entire product line, because we do not have the production assets of the necessary technological capabilities for the production of, say, high-tech microcontrollers and processors. This is a fact" – Borisov said. At the same time, he clarified that some of the products are gradually being replaced. "We have the necessary assets, where very high technologies in the field of power electronics are not required. Of course, these substitutions actually occur. So there is potential, and our enterprises are increasing volumes in this area" – he said, adding that this is a gradual process, and it is impossible to reach the required level of production at the same time.

    According to Borisov, the shortage of automotive components affected not only Avtovaz and Kamaz, but also the main manufacturer of final automotive electronics, Itelma.

    "The shortage of necessary components is experienced not only by Russia, but also by almost the entire global automotive industry. This is due to understandable reasons: the presence of an energy crisis associated with the pandemic, a sharp drop in production volumes, including in the global automotive industry, which led to the lack of demand for the necessary amount of all automotive components. Today we are getting out of this crisis. It is almost impossible to increase it at the same time, to reach the necessary level of production, this is a gradual process, the production capabilities of the entire global microelectronics industry are now actively working on this" – the Deputy Prime Minister said. He added that now, in particular, work is being restored at the Angstrem plant.

    According to Borisov, short-term stops of the conveyors of Russian automakers, in particular Avtovazaa, are not critical, because manufacturers have a stock of products.

    In recent months, global automakers have been experiencing problems due to a shortage in the market of semiconductors and other automotive components. American General Motors, Japanese Toyota Motor, South Korean Hyundai Motor were forced to suspend the operation of some of their factories or reduce production volumes due to interruptions in the supply of chips.

    The Association of European Businesses in Russia has previously stated that it expects a decline in sales volumes in Russia of most automakers this summer due to a shortage of electronic components around the world. The main Russian automaker, Avtovaz, has suspended production of various models of cars several times in recent months.

    Niva from Switzerland: participants of the future Dakar visited AvtoVAZ. 

    The crew of the Swiss team Niva Red Legend Team visited AvtoVAZ — the sports Niva, prepared for participation in the Dakar-2021 rally raid, arrived in Togliatti on its own. As it was announced earlier, this team has secured the factory support of the domestic brand at the upcoming competition.

    At the Russian enterprise, pilot Mario Jacober and navigator Ivan Milich visited the corporate museum and got acquainted with the sports Nivas that participated in Dakar in the old days - and which inspired the Swiss to take part in the legendary race themselves.

    In addition, the crew visited the Lada Sport division, where the athletes talked with the president of AvtoVAZ, Nicolas Maure, and the director of Lada Sport, Vladislav Nezvankin. They were shown the car preparation shop of the Lada Sport Rosneft team and held a consultation on further refinement of the raid Niva.

    Next, the Niva Red Legend Team will also go to Switzerland on its own, where the car will continue to be tuned before Dakar, the website "At the factory" reports. The car produced in 1984 is declared in the new category Dakar Classic, where cars produced before 2000 participate. According to the technical regulations of this category, cars must be equipped with a safety frame and racing seats, but all the technical stuffing must remain serial.
