Handheld Hydrogen Leak Detector Donated to Formula Zero Championship Race Series Team

Jan 26 2009

H2scan Corporation (USA) have announced the company`s sponsorship of the new zero emission, Formula Zero Championship Race Series with a donation of their Hy-Alerta 500 Handheld Hydrogen Leak Detector to the
UCLA Hydrogen Engineering Research Consortium team (HercUCLAs).
The Formula Zero Championship race series, which premiered in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, August 22nd and 23rd 2008, is a Dutch initiative encouraging University teams from all over the world to design and race zero emission, water-generating hydrogen-powered fuel
cell race karts. Formula Zero’s goal is ultimately to show the public
that clean, environment-friendly fuels are also capable of high performance applications.
H2scan`s Vice President of Sales and Business Development Cyril Berg stated, “Our Hy-Alerta 500 handheld hydrogen leak detector is perfectly suited to this race and its competitors because of the unit`s portability and ease of use in detecting hydrogen leaks.
This is an excellent opportunity for us both, and we are excited to participate and contribute to this global project to promote clean energy.”
H2scan`s Hy-Alerta 500 Handheld Hydrogen Leak Detector is a most versatile, portable hydrogen leak detector, able to respond to the widest range of hydrogen gas concentrations without the need of expensive peripheral equipment.
Kasper Pols, Managing Director of Leak Control Benelux, the exclusive importer of H2scan equipment in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg and sponsor of Formula Zero stated, “We have been working
with H2scan for almost three years and are excited to collaborate with them on this project. Formula Zero is an excellent medium for their hydrogen leak detectors and introduction into the fuel cell market.”
"We are grateful for the generous donation of the hydrogen leak detector from H2scan. By partnering with companies like this, we are able to further develop and safely explore new hydrogen-related technologies.
Their hydrogen leak detector is an invaluable tool in working in a safe manner with hydrogen and in creating a winning kart,” stated Vasilios Manousiouthakis, Director of HERC and faculty advisor for HercUCLAs.
Eelco Rietveld, Racing Director of Formula Zero notes, “With the launch of zero emission racing by hydrogen and fuel cell propulsion, we hope to plant a sustainable seed in the hearts and minds of Motorsport
lovers around the world that hydrogen powered vehicles are racing for the future.”
