Capacity of Texas has been awarded an $872,000 grant from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to develop a hydrogen fuel-cell terminal truck that has zero emissions. The Zero Emission Terminal Truck (ZETT) will be based on the company’s Pluggable Hybrid Electric Terminal Truck (PHETT) platform. “Depending on the requirements, the ZETT can operate up to two shifts before refueling,” said Phillip Ford, President of Longview, TX-based Capacity of Texas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Allied Specialty Vehicles Inc. The PHETT was launched in March 2009, following a $722,000 grant awarded in May 2008 by the Texas Environmental Research Consortium and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality for its development. The PHETT is a series hybrid featuring a constant and efficient rate generator to supply power, as well as an ac traction motor and onboard grid-charging system. The company also claims to have launched in 2007 the first CNG/LNG terminal truck with the Cummins Westport ISL-G engine, meeting U.S. EPA and CARB 2010 emissions standards three years ahead of the required change.
