Montreal, Canada – October 17, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] As part of the CUTE-project (Clean Urban Transport for Europe), 9 European cities and Reykjavik, Iceland will demonstrate emission and sound free transportation systems for a period of two years. Daimler Chrysler’s hydrogen fueled buses will be used in these demonstration projects. Each of the 10 operators will install a hydrogen supply station that demonstrates various hydrogen production and fueling technologies. The data acquired during these demonstrations will be used to determine optimal ways to provide hydrogen under various conditions. In the United Kingdom, Vandenborre Hydrogen Systems (HS) signed an agreement with BP for the supply of one IMET electrolyser to be integrated into the hydrogen fuel station BP will deliver to Barcelona. At this site, the IMET-60 electrolyser will produce 60 Nm3/hr (2282 scfh) of hydrogen from water and electricity. The hydrogen will then be compressed to 350 bar(g) (5075 psig), stored and the buses will be replenished via a dispensing station specially developed by German-based Linde AG. HS has also signed an agreement with Hoekloos for the supply of one IMET(R)-60 electrolyser to be integrated in the Amsterdam, Netherlands hydrogen fuel station. The complete station will be installed inside a 40-ft container and will include a deoxo-drier, a cooling system and a water treatment system. Hoekloos will deliver the fuel station to GVB, a public bus transportation company in Amsterdam that will operate three buses starting in mid-2003. “The signing of these two projects for CUTE represents a prestigious acknowledgement of the superiority of the IMET technology,? said Bart Van Ouytsel, Chief Operating Officer. “We anticipate several new orders for IMET fuel stations in Europe as well as abroad” Access:
