Hydrogen Engine Center in Demo Project at Montreal Airport

Hydrogen Engine Center, Inc. (HEC) (earlier post) will participate in a C$11 million (US$9.2 million) hydrogen energy technology demonstration project at Montreal’s Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport.

The airport project is focused on testing and demonstrating hydrogen technologies and fueling infrastructures. Numerous hydrogen usages will be tested within the project, including but not limited to, passenger transportation, cargo handling, various power sources as well as hydrogen refueling technologies. A main goal of the project is to demonstrate how hydrogen can be integrated into existing environments safely and effectively.

HEC Canada will be responsible for providing and installing up to 10 hydrogen-fueled 4.9-liter internal combustion engines for installation in existing airport luggage tractors. This is a multi-million dollar agreement for which HEC will provide goods and services valued at C$1,151,898. Participation in the project involves an in-kind contribution from HEC in the amount of C$575,949.

The Government of Canada and the Government of Quebec are major partners in the project along with Air Liquide, which is participating in the project and serving as the projects manager. HEC plans to work directly with Air Liquide on all aspects of the hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines.
