DynaCERT’s (TSX:DYA) HydraGEN technology will support the French HoleShot Competition team at the 2024 Dakar Classic.

The team’s race truck (No. 915) will benefit from HydraGEN‘s proven ability to provide hydrogen and additional oxygen to an engine through electrolysis, increasing efficiency while reducing emissions of greenhouse gases, NOx, CO2, THC and other particulate matter compared with other diesel trucks at the rally.

The collaboration marks the Dakar Classic’s first hybrid hydrogen diesel race truck. The 2024 edition of the rally will take place in Saudi Arabia and cover approximately 5,000 kilometres over 14 days of racing, with just one day of rest midway.

DynaCERT intends to use the race to demonstrate HydraGEN’s on-demand hydrogen production in a challenging environment marked by hot weather, extreme vibrations and continuously high speeds.

“We are proud to partner with an international company such as DynaCERT that is focused on reducing carbon emissions. For us, the purpose of being supported by DynaCERT is to show that motorsport can be less polluting, which is the starting point of our discussion with the company asking them to join us in our Dakar Classic Rally journey. HydraGEN is already used by road transport trucks, so I’m delighted to be able to show that it’s possible to hybridize diesel engines with hydrogen energy with this technology in truck racing,” Alexandre Lemeray, Holeshot Competition team manager, said in a statement.

“The close collaboration with the HoleShot Competition team and our French distributor, IPMD SAS, based in Chambly, France, makes it possible to present our HydraGEN technology to a broad audience during the Dakar Classic Rally and to promote decarbonization in motorsport and the transport industry,” added Enrico Schläpfer, vice president international sales at DynaCERT. “The hybridization of diesel engines with HydraGEN technology is designed to enable users to reduce emissions on a broad scale today and make the industry as a whole cleaner and greener.”

DynaCERT manufactures and distributes carbon emission-reduction technologies, including its HydraLytica Telematics, a platform to monitor fuel consumption and calculate greenhouse gas emissions savings for carbon credits for use with internal combustion engines, and its patented on-demand hydrogen and oxygen generation technology for diesel engines.

DynaCERT stock (TSX:DYA) is unchanged trading at C$0.15 per share as of 9:40 am ET. The stock is down by approximately 25 per cent year-over-year and by 30 per cent since 2018.
