SEAFUEL brings the first fuel cell vehicle to Tenerife
The arrival of this vehicle in Tenerife will demonstrate the technological, social and economic viability of renewable fuels in transportation
Project SEAFUEL presented yesterday the first fuel cell vehicle of the SEAFUEL fleet. The Hyundai Nexo, the first to arrive together with the other 7 cars, will demonstrate the technological, social and economic viability of using sustainable hydrogen in transport by supporting the shift towards a low-carbon economy.
This vehicle will become part of the SEAFUEL fleet of vehicles and will be used by the project partners to carry out a study on the socio-economic impact of the implementation of this technology in isolated territories.
The innovative approach of the SEAFUEL project foresees the installation of the first hydrogen fueling station in the island Tenerife, a pilot plant capable of producing green hydrogen from seawater and renewable energies.
The event, which took place at the ITER facilities, was attended by the first vice-president and director of the Island of Innovation, Enrique Arriaga, and the CEO of Hyundai Canarias, Irene Gálvez, as well as the CEO of ITER, Eduardo Ballesteros, and the project manager of the Tenerife Energy Agency, Elsa López.
SEAFUEL project is lead by the National University of Ireland Galway and has a budget of 3.4 million euros to be implemented until January 2022.
