New Hydrogen Truck

by Apr 25, 2018Industry News

UK firm ULEMCo has developed a truck that runs a modified internal-combustion engine on hydrogen gas. The technology, unlike electric, allows the trucking industry to easily adapt.

Today’s heavy truck engines need little modification to use hydrogen as fuel, the cost to the end user is very low, whilst it also lowers emissions.

The truck is altered to carry 37.4 pounds of hydrogen which will power the truck, unladen, for around 186 miles while producing 300 horsepower.

In the coming months, ULEMCo will have a proof-of-concept demonstrator vehicle on UK roads.

Zenith is always looking to the future and for improvements in our own carbon footprint, whilst delivering excellent standards on the road, therefore we will be watching these developments closely.
