Abstract
The Spokane Research Laboratory of the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health demonstrated a prototype hydrogen-fueled mining vehicle as an alternative to diesel equipment in underground mines. Safety and control systems were added to allow a 70-kW rubber-tired hydrogen vehicle, originally developed by the U.S. Bureau of Mines and Hydrogen Consultants Inc. (now Hydrogen Components Inc., Littleton, Colorado), to be tested. This work began in late 2000 and culminated with a Mine Safety and Health Administration fire safety review and field tests at the Stillwater Mine, Nye, Montana, in 2004.
