The HFI system uses an on-board electrolyzer to produce hydrogen, which is then injected into the fuel-air charge in a diesel or gasoline engine, thereby reducing emissions and fuel consumption.
A. Miguel Cunha began discussing the adaptability of the HFI system to his fishing fleet a number of months ago. The fishing industry, particularly in Portugal and Spain has been under great pressure with the rising fuel costs.
Based on the anticipated success of the first installations, the two companies have already begun preliminary discussions regarding the potential of Mr. Cunha acquiring the distribution rights for various markets and regions in Portugal and Spain.
HFI units are being used by more than 150 fleets of long-haul transport trucks, ambulances, municipal buses and other heavy equipment.
