Hy-Drive, PeopleNet join forces to confirm technology benefits, expand service to clients
TORONTO, ONT-Hy-Drive Technologies has entered into a business partnership with PeopleNet, a supplier of Internet-based, satellite tracking and mobile communications for fleets. Use of this technology will allow Hy-Drive to demonstrate, verify, and maintain the fuel efficiency and emission reduction benefits of its proprietary, patented hydrogen generating system. In turn, Hy-Drive clients have the opportunity to subscribe to the full range of PeopleNet services at a discounted cost. "With this technology embedded in our system we will now be able to monitor and maintain the fuel efficiencies obtained by our Clean Burn Technology(TM), thus fully supporting the performance guarantees we provide our clients," said Hy-Drive president Tom Brown. "This feature fully differentiates us in this market, as the only supplier backing claims with independent, statistically significant evidence," he added. As a satisfied client of both Hy-Drive and PeopleNet, Steve Teeple, president of PolyWog Transport, confirmed that "with the addition of Hy-Drive in May of last year, we were able to improve fuel mileage by an average of 1.2 MPG [miles per gallon] and were able to confirm it daily using the PeopleNet system." Teeple's firm operates a fleet of refrigerated trucks out of Palmetto, Florida. Hy-Drive's system generates and injects hydrogen gas into a regular internal combustion engine, enhancing the combustion process by allowing fuel to burn more efficiently and completely. Extensive customer trials and third-party tests have demonstrated significant performance enhancements, including reduced emissions, increased torque/horsepower and significant fuel savings using the system.
