A new zero-emissions Hydrogen Genset optimised for combustion efficiency, air quality and emissions is undergoing testing for commercial deployment.

As the power train is zero emissions at the exhaust manifold, after-treatment systems are not required, saving costs and reducing maintenance.


Dual fuel co-combustion gensets can take advantage of the clean energy source. The dual fuel engines can run on 100% diesel if there is no hydrogen available, or run with hydrogen-diesel with a simple refuel process exactly like current gasoline or diesel refuelling.

Dual fuel co-combustion engines leverage the known long lifetime and low CAPEX and OPEX of internal combustion engines.

The changes to the diesel gensets for dual fuel operation are minimal (the technology can even be retro-fitted to existing gensets in some cases) meaning low investment costs.

Operating, servicing, repair and maintenance are all similar to existing engines meaning low OPEX costs, minimal retraining and existing infrastructure for parts supply and servicing.


  • The most common is multiple fossil fuel configurations such as diesel and natural gas.
  • The other type is diesel/fossil fuel combined with biofuel such as methanol. The benefit is to reduce carbon emissions.
  • Lastly, fossil fuels combined with other types of fuels such as ammonia or hydrogen. Their advantage is similar to biofuel, to reduce the carbon footprint.
