ALBANY – After clambering up into the 5-foot high cab of his semi-tractor truck, driver Danny Gamboa buckles his seat belt and takes off. He steps on the accelerator and the massive truck surges forward with barely a sound. While this semi is designed to haul an 80,000-pound load, it rides more like a luxury SUV but with even less noise.
This Kenworth truck may look like the scores of semis one sees any day on an interstate highway. But rather than a diesel motor, this one is powered by hydrogen.
