Water Fuel Engineering awarded for Technical Innovation
at the Royal Highland Show 2019!

 

Water Fuel Engineering wins in the Technical Innovation Awards!

 

A record breaking 195,000 visitors attended the Royal Highland Show this year and WFE had the pleasure and opportunity to showcase our HydroGen electrolyser throughout the four-day event. We were pleasantly surprised that more and more people appreciate the benefits of using hydrogen as a fuel.

 

The Royal Highland Show, organised annually for the last 179 years, is an opportunity for businesses and farmers to showcase their achievements and products related to agriculture. It forms an integral part of the UK agricultural community and offers an opportunity to explore the most modern and innovative solutions to the current challenges faced by agriculture.The awards for technical innovation were given by the Royal Highland and Agricultural Society of Scotland and the ceremony was held at Ingliston House.

 

It was inspiring to see that the vision for a cleaner and more energy efficient future is shared. As part of the event, WFE organised a free prize draw with the award being a free electrolyser for a year. The event greatly contributed to the potential of WFE to expand their client base, with over forty individuals and organisation entering our competition.

Water Fuel Engineering awarded with 1st Place in Trade Stand Exhibit
in Scotland's Beef Event 2019

 

WFE are proud to announce that during this year's Scottish Beef Event, held at North Belthelnie Farm, Old Meldrum, Aberdeenshire on 30th May, we were awarded first place for a commercial stand.

 

The award as given by David Duguid MP from Baniff and Buchan. As he said himself, ‘Water Fuel Engineering Ltd had a more under-stated stand inside one of the large sheds but presented a truly inspiring vision of the use of Hydrogen as a fuel of the future.’

 

One of the key distinguishing features of our electrolyser is its efficiency and to highlight this, we set up a tube filled with water which we used to help visualise the production of oxyhydrogen through bubbles. We hope that this event has contributed to the popularising our technology whilst bearing in mind the successful project at Nether Aden Farm under 'Farming for a Better Climate' Initiative since September 2017. The event had a huge amount of visitors which helped to increase the interest in WFE's technology.

Water Fuel Engineering has successfully completed their first ever project in India.
and the results are impressive!

 

Our team went to Hyderabad,India, to install our electrolysers on busses owned by the Telengana State Transport Corporation (TSRTC) in October 2018. It was the first experience of exporting to an non-EU country, overcoming challenges related to shipping our units across more than 5800 miles.

 

The installations of the electrolysers were completed in November 2018, where our team collaborated with and trained local engineers to use our technology. Initial road trials and emissions tests were conducted in line with local legislation and methods prior to evaluating the short-term effects of WFE's units.

 

The project inspired our team and knowledge transfer with local firms lead to innovative software updates. Effective communication and feedback mechanisms were established between WFE and our new client to ensure effective implementation of the electrolysers, configuring our technology to work in ambient conditions vastly distinct to those in the UK or Europe.

 

The results of the projects were in-line with our expectations, showing a reduction of 75% in emissions and smoke by across all vehicles. This represents an amazing opportunity of implementing retrofit technology in one of the most polluted regions in the World. At least 140 million people in India breathe air that is more than 10 times over the World Health Organisations's safety limit and 10 of the most polluted cities in the world are in India.

 

The transport sector greatly contribute to air quality deterriorating  and solutions like WFE's electrolyser are quickly gaining traction as there is no requirement to purchase new equiptment. Witnessing the results of our electrolysers, Indian officials recognised the benefit of implementing WFE's methodology in improving fuel efficiency and reducing emissions, but emphasised the health benefits that the technology can deliver.

Hyderabad, India
WFE receives a grant for installing electrolysers in India

WFE was awarded a funding agreement with IMC World Wide Limited through the ‘The High-Volume Transport Applied Research Programme.’

 

A grant was awarded for the installation of ten electrolysers on busses owned by Telengana State Road Transport Corporation in Hyderabad, India. The performance of the vehicles is monitored by the State Government and industry specialists TCRTC have the largest fleet of busses in the world , consisting of approximately 10,525 vehicles.

 

The potential in this project in economic terms can be expressed in the sheer number of busses that could have an electrolyser installed. In terms of social and environmental, the electrolysers can work to prevent air quality deteriorating in the area of the world which has the highest amount of air pollution. In the end of November 2018, one of our teams completed the installations in India.

 

The biggest challenge was the high temperatures in India which necessitated the development of a new system to control the mobile electrolysers which allowed constant delivery of oxyhydrogen through electrolysers connected in parallel. On the basis received regarding the temperature of the systems their work cycle is now able to be regulated.
