Air Liquide and the Port of Rotterdam Authority have today revealed plans to get 1,000 hydrogen-powered zero emission trucks on the roads connecting the Netherlands, Belgium, and West Germany by 2025.
Several partners representing the whole supply chain, from truck manufacturers such as VDL Groep, Iveco/Nikola to transport companies Vos Logistics, Jongeneel Transport and HN Post, as well as leading fuel cell suppliers have already joined the project, which also includes plans for 25 hydrogen stations.
One of the largest projects in Europe for the development of hydrogen trucks and related infrastructure, it will contribute to improve air quality by reducing an estimated amount of more than 100,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions per year, which is equivalent to 110 million kilometres driven.
In order to have 1,000 hydrogen-powered trucks on the road, out of which 500 are expected to be based in the Port of Rotterdam area, the related infrastructure needs to be developed and deployed, which envisages 25 high capacity hydrogen stations to connect the Netherlands, Belgium, and West Germany.
