Following the news last week that Red Bull Advanced Technologies and Oreca would be developing the chassis for the Le Mans 24 Hours hydrogen class, due to arrive in 2024, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest has confirmed that GreenGT will supply the spec powertrain components for all cars in the class.

The Swiss company has been a partner on the project since its inception, but until the ACO’s announcement it was not confirmed as the final supplier. Notably, the states that the fuel cell stack itself, including the cells, control hardware and software, will be open to development by competing teams; GreenGT will only be responsible for the traction motors, battery system and transmission.

ACO president Pierre Fillon commented, “The forthcoming hydrogen class is really taking shape. GreenGT was an obvious choice for us. We had already been working together for several years and the expertise we have built up thanks to the MissionH24 project will benefit the teams that enter the class. We know where we want to go, and with excellent companions to help us on the way, the ACO is determined to achieve the goal of making a real contribution to sustainable mobility.”
