Switzerland-based GreenGT will supply the powertrain for each car entered in the hydrogen category at the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Confirming the news today (3rd Feb), the Automobile Club de l’Ouest said it represents another step towards sustainable mobility.
Under the agreement, GreenGT will supply the battery, engine, and transmission.
The fuel cell stack, the core of hydrogen technology (fuel cell, power control hardware and software, compressors, and cooling system) will be open to development by the teams.
Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, said, “The forthcoming hydrogen class is really taking shape.”
“We had already been working together for several years and the expertise we have built up thanks to the MissionH24 project will benefit the teams that enter the class.”
GreenGT now joins Plastic Omnium and Red Bull-Oreca as a technological supplier for the new endurance racing class.
Christophe Ricard, President of GreenGT, added, “Just over two years ago, the ACO and GreenGT launched MissionH24 with a view to introducing a hydrogen category at the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans.”
“Today, we are proud to be joining prominent automotive experts Oreca, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Plastic Omnium as supplier for the class.”
“The challenge is great, as is our determination to meet it.”
