Hyzon Motors to Participate in HyTrucks Program
Leading global supplier of zero-emission hydro gen fuel cell-powered heavy vehicles Hyzon Motors announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to participate in the newly established HyTrucks consortium in Europe. The HyTrucks consortium, founded by Air Liquide, DATS 24, the Port of Rotterdam, the Port of Antwerp and the Port of Duisburg, is one of Europe’s largest initiatives aiming to deploy zero-emission heavy vehicle fleets into the continent’s busiest transportation corridors.
By entering into the agreement, Hyzon will support the HyTrucks program’s goal to have 1,000 heavy hydro-gen-powered trucks on the road, as well as establishing 25 new hydrogen refueling stations, by 2025, ena-bling emissions-free road travel between Belgium, the Netherlands and western Germany. More than 100,000 tons per year of CO2 emissions, equivalent to 110 million kilometers (68 million miles) driven, could be avoided from successful deployment of FCEVs such as those that Hyzon manufactures.
Through its participation in HyTrucks, Hyzon joins yet another powerful and growing ecosystem of hydrogen partners that represent the entire mobility value chain: truck manufacturers, transport companies and fuel cell suppliers. As previously announced, Hyzon has joined the Covenant on Hydrogen in Mobility in Utrecht, which plans to bring 1,800 hydrogen vehicles to the Netherlands, and is a member of a European consortium of automotive companies that specified a joint target to deploy up to 100,000 hydrogen fuel cell-powered trucks from 2030 onwards.
Notably, Hyzon has also taken on the role of a hydrogen ecosystem convener through the establishment of the Hyzon Zero Carbon Alliance, an international effort to advance hydrogen ecosystems. With founding members such as AXA, Bank of America, Raven SR, ReCarbon, and Total, Hyzon has aligned the supply and demand side of the sector, pooling collective expertise to make zero-emissions hydrogen mobility a reality.
