Ford introduces hydrogen for industry

Dearborn, Michigan – Ford Power Productions, a division of Ford Powertrain Operations, is introducing hydrogen-fueled internal combustion engines for industrial use.

The move coincides with Ford Motor Company’s introduction of its first commercial hydrogen-powered shuttle bus, which is powered by a modified 6.8-litre Triton V-10 engine.

Ford currently has two prototype engines in the industrial marketplace: a 4.2-litre V6, intended for airline ground support equipment and power generation; and the 6.8-litre V10 for power generation. Production timing and volume will be dictated by market demand.
