ULEMCo, the ultra-low emissions vehicle company championing the conversion of diesel vehicles for hydrogen fuelling, has reached an important milestone for use of hydrogen fuel in its fleet of test vehicles.
Sixteen standard Ford Transits – adapted to run on dual hydrogen / diesel – have clocked up over 20,000 miles (over 32,000 km) using hydrogen fuel. The vehicles achieved ultra-low emissions of 59g of CO2 per kilometre, compared with 234g/km for the standard vehicles, equivalent to a saving of almost six tonnes of CO2 emissions for the UK to date. The figures are based on witnessed emission tests. Details
