Air Products & Cummins to Introduce Hydrogen Trucks Worldwide
Allentown-based Air Products, an industrial gases company that supplies and transports hydrogen, recently partnered with Cummins Inc., a global power and hydrogen technologies company based in Indiana, to accelerate the integration of hydrogen fuel cell trucks in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. Under the agreement, Air Products will convert its global fleet of approximately 2,000 distribution vehicles to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles using hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrains Cummins provides. The powertrains will be integrated into select original equipment manufacturer partners’ heavy-duty trucks.
The companies also plan to increase the accessibility of renewable hydrogen.
Air Products plans to convert its global fleet after the demonstration and pilot phase, scheduled to begin next year.
