LEONHARD WEISS has received the H2Genset to supply zero-emission power for its office containers, sanitary facilities, and construction machinery at a site in Durlesbach, Germany.

According to SFC, its H2Genset has offered the construction firm with the ability to provide emission-free, low noise, and mobile power for undeveloped sites, all while requiring minimal maintenance.

H2 View understands the hydrogen generator can offer a reduction of 91.1 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year when compared to a 10kW diesel generator.

Dr. Peter Podesser, CEO of SFC Energy, commented, “The use of the H2Genset on the construction site shows how uncomplicated, useful and sustainable our multiple award-winning products are, even under extreme conditions. Hardly any maintenance work, no carbon dioxide emissions and noise-free operation are a perfect fit for the ‘green construction site of the future’. Thus, we make a significant contribution in the global race to zero”

In October (2022), SFC’s development partner of the H2Genset, TEST-FUCHS, won a Lower Austria innovation award for the hydrogen-powered generator.
