Linde to supply Shell Eco-marathon with hydrogen


For the fifth consecutive year, technology company The Linde Group will support the Shell Eco-marathon and supply participating fuel cell-powered vehicles with hydrogen.

Last year, Linde became a Global Partner of this event, one of the world’s most challenging student innovation competitions that takes place annually in Europe, America and Asia.

“Each year the student teams demonstrate the enormous potential of fuel cells with extraordinary ingenuity and enthusiasm. It is no surprise that by now, hydrogen has achieved a top rank among alternative, zero-emission fuels,” says Markus Bachmeier, Head of Hydrogen Solutions at Linde. “We look forward to once again supporting the student teams as best as we can – providing not only fuel, but also practical assistance and advice.”

As the event’s exclusive hydrogen partner, Linde will supply ready-to-install gas cylinders to the teams, who use fuel cell power units for their competition vehicles. It’s anticipated 54 teams will compete in the fuel cell category at the 2015 events, scheduled for 26 February – 1 March in Manila, Philippines; 9-12 April in Detroit, US; and 21-24 May in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Linde’s long-standing expertise in hydrogen enables it not only to manage the hydrogen logistics but also to provide valuable technical support and advice to the teams from across the world.
