Besides the H2 vehicles, two containers were delivered to Amey. The first one holds water which is split into hydrogen and oxygen. Then, the pure hydrogen is channelled into the second container that will be used to fill up the green units.
Amey’s trial will generate a substantial amount of data about the cars’ performance that will be analysed with more than 20 experiences by ITM.
Keith Sexton, HSEA director for Amey, said they are proud to be helping with the research and development of hydrogen vehicles. “This fuel can be efficiently stored, refuelling the vehicle is quick and simple and the only substance released into the atmosphere is water”, stated the executive.
In turn, Councillor John Jarvis, Leader of Herefordshire Council, said: “It is wonderful that our contracting partners Amey have agreed to be part of this trial and are supporting the council’s aims to reduce the county’s carbon footprint. It is obviously early days with this technology but I will follow its progress with interest.”
