Chevron and Caterpillar to develop hydrogen demo projects

By Editor


Chevron and Caterpillar announced an agreement to develop hydrogen demonstration projects in transportation and stationary power applications, including prime power.

Caterpillar and Chevron aim to confirm feasibility and performance of hydrogen for use as an alternative to traditional fuels for line-haul rail and marine vessels. The collaboration seeks to demo hydrogen’s use in prime power.

Chevron and Caterpillar will demonstrate a hydrogen-fueled locomotive and associated hydrogen-fueling infrastructure. Work on the rail demonstration will begin immediately at various locations across the United States.

“Chevron New Energies is pursuing opportunities to create demand for hydrogen – and the technologies needed for its use – for the heavy-duty transportation and industrial sectors, in which carbon emissions are harder to abate,” said Jeff Gustavson, president of Chevron New Energies.

“As we work to provide customers with the capability to use their desired fuel type in their operations, collaborating with Chevron is a great opportunity to demonstrate the viability of hydrogen as a fuel source,” said Joe Creed, Caterpillar group president of Energy & Transportation.
