Hydrogen Engine Center Receives Order From Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro
Hydrogen Engine Center, a developer of systems and processes used in the design, manufacture and distribution of alternative fuel internal combustion engines, has received a purchase order from Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro for additional work for grid integration of the 250kW 4+1 Oxx Power hydrogen generator for its wind-hydrogen-diesel energy project in Ramea, in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Ramea is the site of a five-year R&D project for an isolated wind-hydrogen-diesel generation system, reportedly among the first of its kind in the world.This project is focused on developing an environmentally friendly energy solution to be used in small, isolated electrical distribution systems. The project builds on the existing wind-diesel system that has been operating in Ramea since 2004.
Ted Hollinger, president and CEO of Hydrogen Engine Center, said: "Hydrogen Engine Center is very pleased to receive this purchase order and we are looking forward to the collaborative effort with Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro to connect this hydrogen-fueled power generation system to the Ramea wind-hydrogen-diesel energy project. The completion and installation of this unit will prove a concept that I have believed in for years, namely that we really can produce our own clean power from the natural energy that surrounds us."
