Delta’s Hydra Energy today announced an industry milestone – delivery of the first hydrogen-converted, heavy-duty truck to a paying fleet customer.
Hydra is the world’s first Hydrogen-as-a-Service (HaaS) provider for commercial fleets looking to reduce emissions and costs with limited risk and no up-front investment.
Today’s delivery comes after the company completed three years of successful on-road testing of its hydrogen-diesel, co-combustion injection system proving no loss in fuel efficiency, range, power, torque, or payload capacity and a carbon emissions reduction of up to 40% per converted truck.
Earlier this year Hydra secured $15 million from Just Business to expand beyond pilots and deliver hydrogen-powered trucking.
Lodgewood Enterprises, a full service short and long-haul trucking company based out of Prince George has received the initial truck marking the first of 12 semi-trucks to be converted with Hydra’s fully reversible, hydrogen-diesel conversion kit at no cost to Lodgewood.
The clean trucks will run on low-carbon hydrogen at a fixed discount below the cost of diesel which Hydra has sourced from Canadian industrial chemical provider, Chemtrade.
