AVL RACETECH Builds Hydrogen Combustion Engine For Motorsport

The title of this post, is the same as that as this article on Hydrogen Central.

This is the opening paragraph.

AVL RACETECH, the motorsport department of AVL, presents the prototype of an innovative H2 internal combustion engine. The power unit is a compact, hydrogen-powered 2-liter turbo engine, with intelligent water injection that enables it to achieve a totally new performance level. The prototype is the first racing engine that AVL RACETECH is developing and building in-house.


  1. The engine has a size of two litres.
  2. It generates about 150 kW/litre.
  3. It features water injection.
  4. It appears to be very interesting technically and has been designed with extensive computer simulation.

AVL RACETECH has a web site, which gives more information.

  1. I’m a keen advocate for AVL List, Racetech’s Austrian parent company and once looked into opportunities to work for them.
    You be pleased to know that Cummins use a lot of their test and simulation software.
    BTW Graz is a lovely place to work.

    • I can certainly confirm that Cummins test software is good. They were taking the output and running it through my program; Daisy to locate problems with the test hardware.
