Leading global supplier of zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles Hyzon announced an agreement with Geesinknorba to be its exclusive vendor for zero emission trucks. Geesinknorba already deploys zero emissions vehicles throughout Europe, with 300 trucks or more expected to be supplied by Hyzon during the three-year contract. The companies expect annual demand to grow as customers prioritize the decarbonization of waste collection, and this will be facilitated by increasing availability of hydrogen throughout Europe. Recent announcements on green hydrogen production and the buildout of hydrogen infrastructure have reached fever pitch in the wake of the COP 26 Summit in Glasgow. Diesel-powered refuse collection vehicles suffer from high maintenance costs and extremely poor fuel efficiency due to the nature of their daily operations, and are frequently the source of noise complaints in residential neighborhoods. Refuse collection offers a particularly suitable application for hydrogen fuel cell technology, as the back-to-base model allows for a central refueling infrastructure. Operating the hydraulic compaction system and lifters for many hours each day is very demanding; Hyzon’s hydrogen powered fuel cell trucks can readily meet these operational requirements. Battery and fuel cell electric vehicles are also significantly quieter than traditional refuse collection trucks. The two companies will collaborate to provide ongoing maintenance and service to end-use customers, making it easy for fleet owners to switch to an emissions-free solution. The initial Hyzon trucks are expected to be deployed by Geesinknorba to the government of Barcelona. They will be produced in Geesinknorba’s facility in Emmeloord and Hyzon’s manufacturing plant in Groningen, Netherlands.
