Hydrogen powered Nissan to be unveiled in Sunderland

The University of Sunderland have successfully converted a Nissan Almera so that it runs off hydrogen. The project named HyPower has been carried out with regional partners to develop a car that produces only water at the exhaust.

Tests have shown that the team led by Dirk Kok of the Institute of Automotive and Manufacturing Advanced Practice (AMAP) have succeeded in their aim and the car will be unveiled on the 17 September at Partners4Automotive 2008.

Adrian Morris, Operations Manager at AMAP, said: "This project marks a significant step forwards in our understanding of hydrogen as a fuel for the automotive industry. The vehicle will act as a test bed to evaluate novel hydrogen technologies in vehicles and will enhance the region's status as an important automotive research and development centre."
