Total becomes a partner in hydrogen-powered race car project

Total has become a partner in MissionH24.

Aiming to promote the use of hydrogen in racing, the project, led by partners the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and GreenGT, has the ultimate goal of introducing hydrogen prototypes at Le Mans, the 24-hour race in France, in 2024, when a special hydrogen class will be created for a zero emission race.

Total will provide the hydrogen fuelling system for MissionH24. The specially designed compact portable filling station fits in a 6 x 2.5 metre shipping container that can be transported to circuits around the world, ready to fuel the LMPH2G’s future endeavours on the racing track.

The mini filling station houses a hydrogen tank, a multi-stage compressor, a cooling system and a distributor/connector to dispense the fuel.
