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.

Nissan Micra Installation
A compressed version of HydroGen developed

The latest version of Hydrogen allowed us to drastically reduce the size of the system which enabled us to install on small vehicles like the Nissan Micra.

 

The size allowed the system to be positioned next to the spare tire of the vehicle without taking too much of the luggage spare of the car. Fuel efficiency improved by 14.3%, demonstrating that HydroGen is compatible with engines of any size.

Successful trial in industrial processes
Based on the successful application of the applying the electrolysers industrially, WFE was invited by the Bulgarian Hydrogen Society to fulfil an order for adding oxyhydrogen to a forced draught burner.

 

 

The manufacturer of the burner was Riello and the development of the systems required for this was difficult as the developer of the burner rejected to collaborate with us, and so did their representatives who perform maintenance.

 

Their opinion on the matter was that it is impossible to add oxyhydrogen to methane. WFE carried out research on the functionality of the burner for a number of months and created a tailor-made electronic control unit which integrated the work of the electrolyser with that of the burner.

 

Following eight months of operation, the opinion of the producer and their representatives has been disproved, as there is a 20% improvement.

WFE participates in the Royal Highland Show
HydroGen publically showcased in Scotland

The annual show is an exhibition of agricultural produce and machinery, where awards are given in multiple categories; from life stock to innovative technologies used in farming.

 

WFE made an entry for the Technical Innovation awards and impressed the judges to the extent that they offered a free exhibition spot for the show in 2019.

 

The last element WFE needed to add at this time was the long-term effects on the engines and whether the electrolysers impacted the warranty of the vehicles.

 

Since then, WFE has participated in projects and research which will put us at an advantage during out participation in 2019 particularly since there the electrolysers in Aberdeenshire have been functioning for approximately two years. Furthermore, because of the work in Aberdeenshire, we have attained permission from JCB to install on new tractors without affecting the warranty status of the new engine.

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.
