HEC Ships First Anhydrous Ammonia-Fueled Engine Unit for Testing

Hydrogen Engine Center (HEC) has shipped its first ammonia-fueled power unit—equipped with an Oxx Power 4.9L engine outfitted with HEC’s proprietary controls and fuel delivery system—to TGP West in California for testing in an irrigation application. (Earlier post.)

The engine will run primarily on anhydrous ammonia, with liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) as a combustion catalyst fuel for this test. The power supplied by this unit will be used to irrigate a walnut grove and provide water for a cattle ranch in the San Luis Obispo area.

A prototype ammonia engine shown by HEC earlier this year used 95% ammonia with 5% hydrogen as a combustion catalyst.
