Empire Hydrogen expands into the massive transportation market of India
October 11, 2017 – An agreement has been signed with a major industrial equipment supplier to expand Empire Hydrogen's distribution and production into the country in most need of its benefits.
The trucking industry in India is an obvious market for the Empire Hydrogen Fuel Enhancement System, for reduction of both air pollution and the high cost of diesel fuel.Air quality is a major problem in India. In early November, 2016, New Delhi was by far the most polluted city in the world, with an off-the-chart Air Quality Index of 999. More than 5,000 schools were closed for 3 days and all construction work was stopped for a period of 5 days.
In the wake of this serious crisis, India is now taking strong action on air pollution. The Empire Hydrogen Fuel Enhancement System could make an enormous difference, cleaning up exhaust emissions and reducing the amount of fuel burned in the transportation industry.
And the cost of fuel is a major factor in the economic success of trucking companies.
There are 6 million diesel trucks operating in India and competition is fierce as fuel is expensive relative to other business costs. Trucking companies bid on daily transport assignments, and Empire Hydrogen's promised 10-20% fuel savings will provide its customers with a huge advantage.
As well, Indian business executives use luxury diesel buses for inter-city travel rather than deal with the expense and hassles of today's airports. Hundreds of thousands of these diesel buses operate around the country, manufactured by major companies such as Mercedes, Volvo, Tata and Scania.
Empire Hydrogen has arranged a one-year ramp up period after which its products will be manufactured in India to supply that market. The major component of the Empire Hydrogen Fuel Enhancement System, the electronic circuit boards, will continue to be supplied from the company's Canadian location. The agreement is contingent on sales of at least 500 units per year in India.
