Dynetek Supplies Hydrogen Systems to MAN

February 26, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Dynetek Industries Ltd. (Calgary, Canada) announced that its 100-percent owned European subsidiary, Dynetek Europe GmbH, will deliver two complete 5000psi (350bar) hydrogen storage systems to MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG in the second quarter of 2003. MAN is developing new fuel cell buses for the hydrogen project at the Munich airport.

In the first phase of the hydrogen project at the Munich Airport, MAN developed and built three articulated buses. The buses were equipped with a MAN internal combustion engine (ICE) fueled by compressed hydrogen and were fitted with Dynetek's 3600psi (250bar) Dynecell® cylinders. The buses have been in service at the airport since mid-1999 and have traveled over 300,000kms.

"We are excited to partner with MAN on their Munich Airport hydrogen project," said Dynetek President and Chief Executive Officer Robb Thompson. "Dynetek worked very closely with MAN on their hydrogen ICE program and now look forward to their fuel cell initiatives."
