Over the five day trial Commercial will run two HICE Transit vehicles, supplied by ITM, and use ITM’s transportable high pressure refueling unit (HFuel), which is to be located at In2Print – one of Commercial’s preferred suppliers. HFuel makes hydrogen on site, using only water and electricity, and there is no need for a fuel delivery because it is made at the point of use. In addition, it refills vehicles in only 5 minutes.
The hydrogen trial is the first of many fuel trials that Commercial will be implementing over the next eight weeks, reported edi.net. “We are currently exploring a number of low carbon vehicle options,” explained Simon Graham, environmental strategist for Commercial. “As well as hydrogen, we are looking at biomethane.”
