Long Beach,CAL,USA -Accesswire/Stockhouse -November 28, 2014: -- Vision Industries received an official request from a Canadian Energy Solutions Company to prototype 32 Tyrano trucks at a remote mining site in Northern Canada. The mining site has a massive wind turbine facility which can produce hydrogen through an electrolyzer. With the capability to produce on-site hydrogen, the mining company hopes to eliminate the need for shipping large quantities of diesel fuel (to the remote site) before onset of winter. During the winter season, the shipping lanes are usually frozen... Powered by a 536 HP engine creating 3,300 ft./lbs. of torque. The Tyrano is the superior drayage vehicle. With the standard H2 fuel tank configuration, the Tyrano can cover 200 miles (400 miles on an extended configuration) over an 8 hour shift. No internal combustion engine means no carbon footprint, no carcinogenic particulates and no noise pollution. Absolutely "Zero Emissions" with an electric engine. VIIC heavy-duty Class 8 trucks are substantially less expensive to operate on a per mile basis than diesel and natural gas powered trucks. The cost savings on a per mile basis versus diesel and natural gas, is expect to be around 35% to 45%. Debtor's hydrogen/electric drive system offers almost double the pulling-power of a conventional diesel truck...
