HYDI Hydrogen Trial: “set a new standard in Adelaide Metro Bus performance”
“1560 performed surprisingly well throughout the day, the throttle response was much better than other buses, power from standing to desired speed was smooth and constant with little or no lag, acceleration from any speed was quicker than most, held speed traversing Murrell Rd and McIntyre Rd with 5-8km/h loss.”
“Overall very impressed with the performance of 1560. 1560 has set a new standard in Adelaide Metro Bus performance”.
Opportunity to accumulate carbon credits derived from fuel savings at the rate of 2.68Kg of CO2 per litre of diesel.
Based on 12.5% saving from every 1 million litres of diesel, the gross benefit of a 335 Tonne reduction in GHG amounts to $4,050 (at $12/tonne).
Large reductions in PM emissions removes health risks and combined with other green house gas emissions meets community expectations to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Adopting new technologies and providing a transitional technology for hydrogen aligns with the Federal Governments “Technology Roadmap” Strategy toward net zero carbon emissions, IMMEDIATELY.
We represent a good news story for the South Australian Government to offset the recent negativity associated with bus transport policy.
The economic and environmental benefits of HYDI are applicable to all diesel powered assets. The greater the rate of diesel consumption, the greater the return on the investment.
