MissionH24 relies on technological partners, all leaders in their sectors, which are exploring the universe of electric-hydrogen propulsion as they too prepare the future of motor sport.

TOTAL

Total joined MissionH24 very soon after the launch of the project by becoming its reference partner. The French energy company provides essential expertise in refueling management for which it has created a unique mobile refueling station that travels to all the circuits with the H24Racing team.

MICHELIN and SYMBIO

By becoming a MissionH24 partner, Michelin is now directly involved in the technical solutions linked to the motorisation of racing prototypes while remaining the exclusive tyre supplier to the H24Racing team. Symbio, which became a joint venture between Michelin and Faurecia in November 2019, will bring its expertise in hydrogen systems for mobility.

RICHARD MILLE

Richard Mille, a tech-savvy visionary, who presides over the destiny of the brand to which he gave his name, has followed with interest the development of the project since its launch in 2018 and has decided to use it as a vector for his communication. The Swiss luxury watch brand is accompanying the programme initiated by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest and GreenGT since the end of the 2020 season.

PLASTIC OMNIUM

Plastic Omnium is among the biggest automotive equipment suppliers in the world. Thanks to the MissionH24 programme the French giant will be able to develop the first fuel tank for racing cars at 700 bars, which will exclusively equip the competitors entering the electric-hydrogen category that will be part of the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans.

« As soon as the Mission24 project was launched it was clear to Total that it was a programme we wanted to be involved in. Hydrogen is one of the most promising tangible solutions to make the energetic transition of mobility a success. The ACO and GreenGT are doing a great job promoting this aim in the realm of motor sport. The introduction of a category reserved for prototypes powered by electric-hydrogen propulsion in the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans goes with the flow of history. »

Rethinking refueling

Total has designed and produced the first mobile hydrogen refueling station. It can be transported from circuit to circuit and enables the racing prototype in the Mission24H programme to fill up with hydrogen in just a few minutes. When the team’s refueling technician connects the hose to the fuel tank an infrared system enables the refueling station “to talk” to the car and optimize the refueling speed depending on the quantity to be injected as well as on weather conditions (temperature, atmospheric pressure).
Refueling time will be greatly reduced as soon as the refueling pressure, currently 350 bars, increases to 700 bars thanks to developments Total is currently working on to improve the performance of the station.
