ULEMCo Ltd, based on Liverpool, was founded in 2014 as a spin out of Revolve Technologies, with founding directors Amanda Lyne and Paul Turner, to commercialise their intellectual property and capability in hydrogen combustion engine technology. The company specialises low emission technology, offering engineering services for the conversion of engines to run on hydrogen, particularly the conversion of commercial vehicles to run as dual fuel hydrogen diesel vehicles, where the approach allows fleet managers to reduce their carbon dioxide emissions to ultra-low levels.
The company secured investment funding from the North West Equity Fund in the summer of 2014.
Amanda has over 10 years’ experience in the hydrogen and fuel cell technology industry, having previously founded ACAL Energy and working through her consultancy business Burgundy Gold Ltd as a specialist in the commercialisation of clean tech businesses. Her career spanning over 20 years includes various positions at ICI Chemicals and Polymers, particularly Chlor Alkali, which produces hydrogen as a bi-product of the chlorine production process. She is a Director of the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise partnership and Chair of UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association.
Paul is a degree qualified engineer through the UK’s Open University and also holds City and Guilds, ONC and HNC qualifications obtained through an Automotive Apprenticeship. His career started in the test operations group at Weslake Developments in Rye, and continued in the Gasoline Engine Department at Ricardo in Shoreham. After 7 years at Ricardo Paul moved on to SAGEM as a systems engineer in the engine controls group, and then head of the Emerging markets group. In 1998 Paul left to join Roush Industries as the Engineering Manager, and has since become the Technical Director of Revolve Technologies Ltd. Paul has lead Revolve’s drive towards alternative energy systems in Hybrid, Electric and Hydrogen technologies.
