In This PROCON Episode

In this episode 4 of the PROCON podcast, Paul is joined by Ron Hochstenbach the Business & Finance Manager, and Gabriel Garcia Aparicio the Project Manager at Forze Hydrogen Racing where they discuss How To Drive Your Project On Hydrogen.

Like any racing team, there are high risks in every area, and learn how project controls in reducing these risks for the team.

The team discusses how project controls positively impact the team to address some of the challenges it faces including:

  • Having to onboard a new team each year
  • Having a relatively large team of students working full-time on the projects
  • How it addresses the steep learning curve of the new management board that is also new every year 

The Forze cars utilize a different and far more efficient concept including using a fuel cell onboard the vehicles that convert the energy stored in its hydrogen fuel, to electric energy.

This means that the hydrogen fuel cell system can be used to power an electric drivetrain like a battery.

Forze Hydrogen Racing is setting a great example on how to be efficient, use the data and drive new initiatives using projects, listen to the podcast to learn more about this exciting business.
