Hexagon Purus has supplied composite cylinders for a hydrogen-powered snow groomer, used in compacting snow for skiing and snowboarding.

The snow groomer, LEITWOLF h2MOTION, is a concept model, following its designers plan to develop a zero-emission machine.

According to Hexagon Purus, the cylinders store compressed hydrogen at 700 bar, allowing the snow groomer to surpass the diesel engine in terms of horse power.
