dynaCERT Inc’s dealer, H2 Tek LP, has put in more purchase orders to dynaCERT for its proprietary HydraGEN™ technology, with a total of 161 units to be fulfilled in 2023, destined for one of its mining customers with operations in South America.
These orders follow positive results of several pilot projects as previously announced by dynaCERT, whereby H2 Tek had advised dynaCERT that the company’s HydraGEN Technology had been installed at certain mining operations in Chile, Peru, Brazil, Argentina and Australia by H2 Tek. These installations were pilot projects to test the numerous benefits and impacts of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN Technology on mining equipment with the intent that successful pilot projects can result in the adoption of the technology to be used for mining equipment and mining fleet applications.
Following the completion of such pilot projects, H2 Tek has indicated to dynaCERT that it has reported very compelling results to such mining and resource companies involved in pilot projects which evaluated dynaCERT’s HydraGEN Technology, including its customer for these purchase orders.
Joao Araujo, Vice President of Global Operations and Partner of H2 Tek, says: “Our customer is a major mining operator in South America. The HydraGEN solution fits perfectly with its commitment to improve its performance with the use of clean energy, in reducing greenhouse gas emissions in operations and in the value chain. This project is just the first step for us to support our client’s ESG objectives.”
HydraGEN is a carbon emissions reduction device for all types and sizes of diesel engines. dynaCERT says: “As part of the growing global hydrogen economy, our patented technology creates hydrogen and oxygen on-demand through a unique electrolysis system and supplies these gases through the air intake to enhance combustion, resulting in lower carbon emissions and greater fuel efficiency.”
dynaCERT said recently that Codelco had been using the technology on board Komatsu 930E trucks at its Radomiro Tomic mine site, in Chile, to reduce GHG emissions and fuel savings.
David Van Klaveren, VP Global Sales/Partner of H2 Tek and Araujo, stated: “Certain large mining vehicles can consume more than 1 million litres of fuel per year, which, with assumed fuel and emission reductions of an assumed 10%, could offset up to 270 t of CO2e per year. We look forward to playing an important role in helping mine operators achieve their carbon emission reduction targets.”
Jim Payne, President & CEO of dynaCERT, added: “We are pleased to support H2 Tek’s mining and resource customers as committed users of our proprietary HydraGEN Technology. The growth of international acceptance of our HydraGEN Technology products, which are designed to reduce fuel consumption and reduce carbon emissions in diesel internal combustion engines, encourages our company to continue to actively foster greenhouse gas emission reductions on a global basis.”
