Hexagon Purus has supplied cylinders for the “world’s first” hydrogen-powered snow groomer, the LEITWOLF h2MOTION, developed by Prinoth.
Marking Hexagon’s first project for snow groomers, its delivered cylinders are storing compressed hydrogen at 700 bar, resulting in a fossil fuel free groomer which meets all performance-related requirements.
Commenting on the project, Martin Kirchmair, Head of R&D at Prinoth, said, “During the journey of development and realisation of the world’s first hydrogen powered snow groomer, we decided to collaborate with Hexagon Purus.”
“During the whole process, Hexagon Purus has been an important strategic partner to realise the cylinder system of the LEITWOLF h2motion.”
Harald Londer, Director Hydrogen Automotive in Hexagon Purus, added, “We are very pleased to be chosen by PRINOTH and it has been a very exciting project to take part in. We believe in clean air everywhere and introducing zero emission vehicles in areas where people are enjoying nature is the way forward.”
