The SimpleFuel team, a consortium of The Fuel Cell Hydrogen Energy Association (FCHEA) members PDC Machines (Warminster, PA), McPhy Energy NA (Newton, MA) and IVYS Energy Solutions (Somerville, MA), has been selected as the finalist in the Department of Energy H-Prize competition and the team is proud to demonstrate its innovative solution starting in the end of September. This solution will provide a new fueling option for hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and enable a larger, more rapid deployment of these clean, zero emissions vehicles in the current and near future.

As part of our partnership with Warwick Township and the local fire departments, Kareem Afzal (PDC) and Darryl Pollica (IVYS Energy) were pleased to conduct a fire safety training for over 50 first responders, fire departments and hazmat responders. Three companies were present including Warwick Township, Hartsville Township and Northampton Township (all PA).

The Simplefuel team spent time at their first site at PDC Machines Plant 2 location in Warminster PA going over the principles of the system operation, first level fire safety with hydrogen and emergency procedures for the Simplefuel system and hydrogen FCEV.

The response and support of Warwick Township and the first responder community has been invaluable to this project and the team looks forward to continuing the engagement.
