Ecotality has engaged Airboss Aerospace to act as consulting engineers on its Hydratus bus. Airboss will work in conjunction with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs and the California Institute of Technology to continue the development of the Hydratus, a system that generates hydrogen on demand.
“Airboss will allow us to quickly quantify and implement recent new advancements in the Hydratus project, provide us a strong adjunct to our JPL team, as well as spearhead the key task of integration of the Hydratus into the hydrogen bus,” said Jonathan Read, CEO, Ecotality.
Airboss will work hand in hand with the scientists and engineers at the JPL to continue the development of the Hydratus through Phase I and Phase II.
“Airboss Aerospace is very excited to be partnered with Ecotality in the development of this revolutionary power system for the Bus project,” said Dave Fawcett, President, Airboss Aerospace. “The ramifications of this program transcend the vehicle industry, to many other industries including aerospace. The Ecotality hydrogen program is well designed, and with the combined efforts of in-house Ecotality personnel, Jet Propulsion Laboratories, and AirBoss, I am absolutely confident that the industry could soon realize a revolutionary and efficient, as well as economical, power source.”
