Compatibility with natural gas
The first industrial installation of the WFE technology was carried out in December 2017 through a connection of a series of electrolysers to a Cummins power generator which normally uses natural gas

The normal consumption of the generator is 525m3 of natural gas with an operational cycle of 24/7. This was a major challenge for WFE to create a series of electrolysers which is to function constantly (24/7) without stopping.


New principles were established in relation of autonomous refilling of the electrolyte in the electrolysers themselves. The electronic control unit of the systems was configured accord to the need for the system to function without stopping. Multiple electrolysers were connected in parallel and a 100-litre water reservoir was used, and the parameters were monitored remotely for the first time.

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.
