Coleraine
First Installations in Northern Ireland

 

Corsway council has committed to clean air quality in this beautiful coastline of Northern Ireland. This has led them to look for innovative solutions and have selected WFE as one of the suppliers to install  five of the latest electolysers on their utility vehicles, including waste trucks. John Mcllreavy, fleet manager for Causeway coast and Glens Borough Council, is enthuasiastic with the installations and is looking forward to seing real-world results in his fleet.

Water Fuel Engineering's Managing Director, Angel Nenov, said he is 'delighted with the commitment shown in the Irish councils and we hope this is the first of many installations that we’ll be making in this part of the UK. It just shows that we cant take things for granted even in areas that apparently have fantastic air quality. The commitment of the council shows how seriously they are taking the global problem and we are grateful for the support of the whole team in Coleraine.'

WFE in India
WFE were invited to Andhra Pradesh.

WFE were invited to Andhra Pradesh to meet with Chief Minister, Sri Nara Chandrababu Naidu, as he launched his 'Happy Cities' initiative in Amaravati in April.

The region has a population of more than 50 million and is making huge strides in its urban development programmes.

But the Chief Minister was keen to ensure that emissions issues in India - ranked amongst the worst in the world - would be a priority in his Administration.

He has asked WFE to work with the Transport Authorities to help reduce emissions to European levels by 2020 using the latest range of electrolysers.

Hydrogen vehicle discovery day
Demonstration at Nottingham University

Industry Innovators and researchers met at Keighton Auditorium to explore some of the lastest moves in low carbon technology. Representatives of Nottingham City Council , the  Energy Technology Research Institute of the University of Nottingham, Tesla , Toyota and Water Fuel Engineering had the chance to explore the range of technology using hydrogen, along with highlighting the challenges related to the infrastructure for it.

 

Water Fuel was delighted to demonstrate an improved version of the electrolyser which was fitted in our demonstration vehicle. Much to the delight of exibitors,researchers and attendants , our demonstration not only contrasted the difference between oxyhydrogen and pure hydrogen but also showed the various possible applications of HHO such as welding and health.

Aberdeenshire Farming

David Barron, who farms at Nether Aden near Mintlaw, Peterhead, is participating in a Scottish-funded trial into the use of hydrogen technology on his JCB loader tractor.

Mr Barron explains that ' you put distilled water in and it goes through the electolyser, and gas goes round into the engine and it keeps it really clean.'

Cornwall Council will be trailing the new techology
CORMAC trialling innovative new technology to improve air quality

Cornwall Council and CORMAC will be trialling innovative new technology with the potential to reduce vehicle emissions and improve air quality. Cornwall Council has been awarded a grant of £236,650 by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) as part of this year’s Air Quality Grant scheme.

Cornwall Council and CORMAC will be working with Water Fuel Engineering Ltd on the trial.  Water Fuel engineering have pioneered the development and production of autonomous electrolysers that split water into hydrogen and oxygen and use the hydrogen as a fuel.  The electrolysers can be used in vehicles alongside conventional fuels such as diesel, petrol or LPG to save fuel and reduce emissions.

The trial will involve retro-fitting the electrolysers to ten Cornwall Council and CORMAC fleet vehicles, including road sweepers, tippers, vans and lorry mounted cranes.  As the vehicles carry out their normal work, their emissions of nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter and carbon will be monitored to measure the reductions achieved by using the electrolysers.  Cornwall Council is ideally placed for a trial of this kind, as its vehicles operate in a range of urban and rural environments.

Geoff Brown, Cornwall Council’s Portfolio Holder for Communities, said: “This grant funded trial is excellent news for Cornwall.  Nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter play a role in many of the UK’s health challenges, so anything that helps to reduce these pollutants is very welcome.

“If the trial is successful, this technology has the potential to be widely used to convert cars and lorries and reduce emissions from many of the older vehicles on our roads, which could make a big difference to air quality in Cornwall’s seven Air Quality Management Areas.”

Phil Davies, Water Fuel Engineering’s Marketing Director, said: “We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with Cornwall Council in this ambitious and pioneering project. Poor air quality is a concern in the UK and reducing or eliminating the emissions from essential utility vehicles is the driving force behind our HydroGen electrolysers.”

Redbridge 2017
Redbridge Transport Show 2017
This years Redbridge Transport Show will host the launch of the WFE HydroGen 5

Already, the HydroGen units have been hybridising conventional diesel utility vehicles and are being factory fitted to the fabulous range of Stock Sweepers.The new generation of HydroGen electrolysers take the technology to a whole new level, with self filling water reservoir and sophisticated management software which further enhances both fuel savings and emissions reductions, including NOx.

If you’re coming to the event, please come along and see the technology for yourself.

If you can’t make it, please contact us to explore the ways in which the HydroGen 5.0 can deliver emissions reductions on your EXISTING stock, AND create huge savings on fuel and filter maintenance.
