Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Johnson Matthey Collaboration

The major contributors to this project are Ford, which manufactures about 2 million engines per year in the UK, Jaguar Land Rover, which installs engines supplied by Ford, and Johnson Matthey, which provides many of the catalytic converters fitted into these engines. The potential UK supply chain is enhanced with the inclusion of ITM who will provide specialist equipment during the project. Three vehicles will be built to demonstrate the potential of the technology – petrol and diesel cars and a diesel hybrid bus. The target is a 4% improvement in CO

2 by 2015 potentially rising to 15% by 2025.

Dr. Graham Cooley, CEO of ITM Power plc commented:

"We are delighted to be collaborating with Ford in this area of development in the transport sector. The use of hydrogen in transport is widely misunderstood and has many different applications. ITM Power has specific expertise in this area and we are already pioneering the development of commercial hydrogen-fuelled vehicles through our Hydrogen On Site Trial programme with a number of blue chip partners."
