Information about IRDI Systems

IRDI Systems is one of five British Columbia companies receiving a total of $1,190,856 aimed at developing advanced technologies, such as hydrogen fuel cells, batteries and other hydrogen fuelling equipment.

This will help the Province move towards the ultimate goal of zero-emission vehicles — cars, trucks and other transportation machines that do not produce any pollution at all.

IRDI is a B.C. hydrogen fuelling technology developer located in Richmond that exports products internationally. IRDI will develop and commercialize a hydrogen fuelling nozzle for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, which will incorporate controller area network protocol. This protocol is used in fuel cell vehicles for communication between vehicles and fuelling stations.

This project will allow medium- and heavy-duty vehicles to fuel more quickly, as they will be able to use 700 bar pressure. The project is expected to be completed by December 2019.

Amount funded: $54,990
Total project cost: $109,980
