1st & 2nd place at SHELL ECOMARATHON ASIA 2014 - powered by HORIZON XP FUEL CELLLS!

Feb 10, 2014 - MANILA - The UITM team from Malaysia achieved 1st place in both Urban Concept and Prototype vehicle categories at the Shell Ecomarathon Asia - which took place for the first time in the Phillipines just a couple of days ago. The second place was also powered by Horizon's fuel cells. This is another great tribute to the Horizon XP line of fuel cells that are so far unbeatable in Asia, for the fourth year in a row and ever since the SHELL ECOMARATHON started in Asia. Horizonoffer the world's most efficient, and lightest solution available - helping teams reach the podium.

 

 



 

 

This event was not a typical race where five or more cars would start at the same time, but rather a competition among the top universities all over Asia to test the capabilities of the engineering students in building an efficient automobile using a set amount of stored energy, required to pass the SHELL's safety stands.

 

The Shell Eco-Marathon Asia 2014 was held in partnership with the Phillippines Department of Tourism, Department of Energy and the City of Manila. Its global partners include Hewlett-Packard (Official Global Information Technology Partner), Michelin (Official tire supplier and global paddock partner), the Linde Group (Official Global Paddock partner) and Southwest Research Institute. Local private sector partners include Solane, Coca-Cola, Globe, Lego, Hyundai and Unilever Philippines.

XP-SERIES STACKS      Helping you set new records with our 59% fuel efficiency 

In collaboration with SHELL Eco-marathon champions, Horizon has developed several generations of what would be considered the "ultimate" system aimed at maximizing the opportunity for podium placement. Customers of XP systems in the past 2-3 years have all achieved excellent rankings, including first, second and third place, in some cases, consecutively. Our latest generation H-1000XP has recently achieved a peak efficiency reaching up to 59% during real test with one of the teams in Asia. The system has been oversized and hydrogen purging frequency and duration have been greatly reduced.

FOR PROTOTYPE  ENTRIES:

- greatly reduced H2 fuel consumption

- plug & play, easy to integrate!

- compliant with SHELL eco-marathon rules

Horizon's XP-SERIES systems are the most fuel efficient available on the market - ideal for use in efficiency competitions such as Shell Ecomarathon.

 

These are also very simple to integrate (can be done in "one afternoon") - and we offer the best support and advice, straight from former champions  who are now taking steps to further innovate and improve these systems, and make them compliant to regulation - not always the case with any fuel cell stack.
