Green Planet Group has announced that the Global Energy hydrogen generator was installed in the test vehicle and road testing began June 10, 2011.
The hydrogen generator that is installed has three modules, the reactor, the gas filter and the electronic controls. The test vehicle is a Ford Crown Victoria with a V8 gas engine that was provided by a local cab company.
If this test continues to be successful, then the cab company will become our first fleet wide customer. The equipment consists of four hydrogen reactors connected together with the gas filter and the computer controls.
The results to date have been extraordinary with an approximate improvement of 60% in fuel economy and a significant reduction in harmful emissions.
There have been some inconsistencies between each field test and modifications to the power control system have reduced these variances. There is still more work needed to improve the computer controller to maximize the system performance.
"We are pleased with the results to date which is confirming the viability of our hydrogen technology," stated Edmond Lonergan, President/CEO of Green Planet.
"As promised, we will continue to inform all interested parties on our progress with future news releases."
