Isle of Man Government joins HOST

ITM Power (AIM: ITM), the energy storage and clean fuel company, is pleased to announce that the Department of Infrastructure of the Isle of Man Government has signed an agreement to participate in the hydrogen on-site trials (HOST) of ITM Power's transportable high pressure refuelling unit (HFuel). The HFuel unit was built with support from the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) and launched at the Company's AGM on 15th September 2010.

The Department of Infrastructure is responsible for maintaining and developing much of the Isle of Man's key infrastructure including the highways network, harbour and port facilities, planning and building control and the island's key government buildings including the sea terminal, airport, energy from waste plant and animal waste processing plant. Through its operations division, the department provides a direct labour organisation which carries out essential works to the infrastructure and also maintains a 24 hour a day emergency response capability for the island.

Commenting for ITM Power, CEO Graham Cooley said: "We are thrilled that the Isle of Man Government's Department of Infrastructure will be joining our HOST trials. This is an exceptional opportunity to test our energy storage: clean fuel technology proposition for vehicle fleets operating in an island environment. Islands, by their nature, rely on imported fuel; our hydrogen trials will demonstrate how an island can produce its own clean fuel, offering a sustainable transport solution for the vital infrastructure logistics fleet."

Keith Lowney, fleet transport manager for the Department of Infrastructure on the Isle of Man, added: "We welcome the opportunity to trial ITM's hydrogen refueling station for return to base operated vehicles. This is particularly appropriate given the geography of the island – 32 miles long by 10miles at its widest – as this will be relevant to most of our infrastructure fleet. Of particular interest will be how as an island we can generate our own clean fuel from our ample sources of renewable energy."
