Students from Aberdeen University have unveiled a hydrogen-powered car they designed and built for this year’s Shell Eco-marathon.
PrototAU have reached the finals of the international competition, which takes place in London next month.
The Eco-marathon challenges students to design, build and test energy-efficient cars, before taking their designs to the track to see which vehicle can go furthest on the least amount of fuel.
The 40-strong PrototAU team, which consists of engineering and business students, have built a car using a fuel cell donated by Ballard, a Canadian company specialising in the development of fuel cell technologies.
The team has also won support from Vattenfall, RS Components, Toyota, Aberdeen City Council, Swagelok Scotland, and Aberdeen-based subsea engineering firm EC-OG.
