Preview of the GreenGT Fuel Cell Race Car’s Sound

14 Dec 2012

GreenGT fuel cell start-up

The GreenGT Fuel Cell Race Car’s fuel cell has been started for the first time, running from 10 000 to 120 000 rpm.

After a necessary burn-in period, during which the multiple components of the fuel cell were tested separately, the GreenGT H2 began the active phase of its power tests.

Jean-François Weber, Managing Director, Head of R&D, explains:

"All the components of our fuel cell have been properly tested. Particular attention was directed to tightness tests for different fluids (water, air, hydrogen), dynamic performance of compressors, and control procedures for the fuel cell and electric motors.”

The sound (or lack of it) of the GreenGT can be heard in this video.
