Project description:

Verne is developing the first demonstration of a Class 8 truck powered by cryo-compressed hydrogen. Cryo-compressed hydrogen allows hydrogen to be cheaply stored in its densest state, maximizing range and payload for heavy-duty vehicles like Class 8 trucks. Verne will work with Alberta-based Diesel Tech Industries (DTI), to retrofit a diesel truck to run on cryo-compressed hydrogen and diesel using a “dual-fuel” combustion engine. Verne will then work with Alberta Motor Transport Association (AMTA) and Alberta-based fleets to demonstrate the benefits of cryo-compressed hydrogen trucks when operating in Alberta.
