“Hydrogen monitors provide high value and low maintenance, which translates to increased reliability and decreased costs for utilities, particularly important during this time when companies must cut back on in-person monitoring of their transformers,” said White. “H2scan provides a world-class product no other company can compete with and has the talent to grow tremendously in the coming years. I look forward to playing a role in this growth.”
