Low Carbon Hydrogen
Enabling commercial scaling for an after-market H2 engine retrofit system by securing OEM partnership
Hydra Energy is the first company to deliver commercial hydrogen-diesel, co-combustion trucks on the road accelerating the transition to cleaner transport. The company’s unique Hydrogen-as-a-Service™ (HaaS™) approach converts existing heavy-duty vehicles at zero cost to fleet owners in exchange for long-term, fuel contracts at diesel-equivalent prices. Currently Hydra’s proprietary conversion kits can displace up to 40% of diesel with hydrogen.
With funding from CICE, this project will support the development of a machine learning system to expedite the calibration and safety testing of co-combustion engines that will enable scaling from the current conversion of 2-3 trucks per year to dozens of different makes and models.
This project is also removing another obstacle to widespread adoption – the preference for an OEM extended warranty. By not modifying the engine block, Hydra’s retrofit system does not void the OEM warranty. Technical and business preparations to satisfy OEM requirements for obtaining warranty extensions will also be fulfilled.
