Ford Introducing H2 Combustion Engines to Industrial Marketplace
24 February 2005
Ford Power Products (FPP), a division of Ford Powertrain Operations, is introducing hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines (H2ICEs) to the industrial marketplace.
This parallels Ford Motor Company’s introduction of the E-450 commercial hydrogen-powered shuttle bus. (Earlier post.)
FPP currently has two different hydrogen engines prototyped for the industrial marketplace: a 4.2-liter V-6 hydrogen engine for airline ground support equipment, and the 6.8-liter V-10 hydrogen engine (picture at right) for power generation applications. Each burns compressed gaseous hydrogen.
|Preliminary Ford H2ICE Engine Specs|
|Rated Power (kW/hp)||60/80||140/188|
|Minimum Fuel Pressure @ engine (psi)||125||125|
The E-450 is also based on the V-10 hydrogen-fueled engine.
