|The hydrogen tow tractor|
Dynetek Industries, together with its alliance partner enviroMECH Industries Ltd., has delivered two 350 bar (5000 psi) hydrogen fuel storage systems to TUG Technologies to be used in hydrogen-fueled tow tractors at the Orlando International Airport.
The M1A tow tractor uses a Ford Power Products 4.2-liter, V-6 industrial engine converted and calibrated to operate on gaseous hydrogen. The naturally-aspirated H2ICE tractor will deliver approximately 80 hp (60 kW). (Earlier post.)
In 2006, in addition to the tow tractors, Dynetek will provide storage systems for eight V-10, Ford E-450 H2ICE shuttles operating in the Orlando area, including at the Orlando airport. (Earlier post.)
The Ford H2ICE E-450 combines a Ford E-450 chassis cab with a shuttle bus body and a modified 6.8-liter Triton V-10 engine fueled with hydrogen.
Funding for this hydrogen demonstration project has been provided by the State of Florida, Department of Environmental Protection in an effort to improve air quality at the Orlando International Airport.
Dynetek offers vechicular compressed hydrogen storage systems with operating pressures of 3,600 psi (250 bar); 5,000psi (350 bar); and 10,000 psi (700 bar).
