Safra to present first hydrogen retrofit kit at Hyvolution
The first hydrogen retrofit kit from Safra will be unveiled on February 1 and 2 during Hyvolution, which will take place at Paris Porte de Versailles.
The business, which was introduced at Autocar Expo in October, is currently applying for approval.
With the help of ADEME, the French Agency for Ecological Transition, and registered under the trade name H2-PACK, Safra has developed an H2 retrofit kit that turns a diesel coach into a zero-emission vehicle that only emits water vapor. This is a real technical accomplishment.
Marinetrans becomes sponsor of TU Delft Hydro Motion Team
The foiling hydrogen boat project at Delft Technical University now has Marinetrans as a partner. Together with other maritime businesses, Marinetrans is currently helping this varied group of students compete in the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge with a foiling hydrogen-powered boat, demonstrating to the industry the viability of sustainable propulsion options.
The TU Delft Hydro Motion Team was established to provide the marine sector with a variety of ways to address climate-related business concerns. Every year, a brand-new team of 20+ students is created with the goal of advancing sustainable technology.
The “Aurora” is being constructed from the ground up and will have a monohull made of carbon fiber and no emissions. For the Monaco Energy Boat Challenge, where all teams compete on manoeuvrability, speed, and endurance, the foiling system has been redesigned in order to save as much weight as feasible. The fact that all other teams consist of seasoned professionals makes the competition and developing their own technologies for the student team all the more exciting. Even better, they create their own lithium battery.
