Submarines: Ideal Fuel Cell Vehicles

HDW's Class 212 and 214 non-nuclear submarines have been developed to use a silent operating fuel cell plant that runs on nine 34-kilowatt Siemens polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) hydrogen fuel cells.

Fuel cells apparently make a good submarine hard to find.

Air Products of Pennsylvania this week announced it supplied a new fueling station to supply a state-of-the-art HDW 214 submarine of the Hellenic (Greek) Navy with hydrogen.

The first fueling of its kind in Greece took place this week in Skaramanga, near Athens.


More time to experiment sought, not necessarily money. Pictured is Ford hydrogen-fueled, internal combustion engine shuttle van.

London is spearheading the drive to cut pollution by investing heavily in hydrogen-powered buses. But is there a better way?

Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies H-Racer and fueling station solve the problems of cleanly generating and distributing hydrogen, but on a very small scale. The price of the toy car and solar refueling station is $80.
