dynaCERT HydraGEN Technology to support first hybrid hydrogen diesel race truck at Dakar Rally

dynaCERT has entered into an agreement with the French team HoleShot Competition to support their MAN Dakar Rally race truck at the 2024 Dakar Classic event.


The French team’s #915 MAN Dakar Classic Rally race truck has been fitted with a HydraGEN HG1 Unit that uses simple electrolysis to convert distilled water into hydrogen and oxygen. Testing has shown use of the unit delivers an up to 19.2% reduction in fuel consumption, and an up to 60% reduction of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) usage.


dynaCERT’s proprietary HydraGEN Technology is designed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, NOx, CO2, THC and particulate matter when compared to other diesel trucks that will race at the Dakar Classic Rally.

The Dakar Classic Rally is a very demanding off-road race that reveals the competitors’ capacity for resistance in long distance stages in the desert. The 2024 edition of the Dakar Classic Rally will take place in Saudi Arabia, where the race will cover an equivalent distance of 5,000 kilometers and 14 days of racing, including only one day of rest at mid-distance.

The Dakar Classic Rally will be a way to demonstrate the performance of dynaCERT’s on demand hydrogen production units in an environment facing hot weather, hard impacts and vibrations and in a demanding operational mode.
