ULEMCo, JCB and Bucher develop hydrogen-powered road sweeper

ULEMCo, JCB and Bucher Municipal have joined forces to develop a new hydrogen-powered road sweeper for the Aberdeen City Council.

With a goal to demonstrate the ability to use hydrogen fuel in both the primary engine and the auxiliary engine powering the ancillary equipment, UK-based hydrogen fuel specialist ULEMCo converted a Bucher Municipal road sweeper to operate on dual fuel.

As the part of the conversion, ULEMCo transformed a Bucher Municipal road sweeper, incorporating 6.6kg of on board hydrogen storage capacity that enables a second engine, provided by JCB, to power the sweepers brushes etc. using hydrogen fuel.

The project marks the third hydrogen road sweeper to be deployed in Aberdeen, facilitated by the Council in partnership between JCB, Bucher and ULEMCo.
