A new Dutch consortium is aiming to develop and test two 44 tonne hydrogen-electric trucks as well as a new public hydrogen dispenser at a filling station in the Netherlands.
Both of these aims are a priority for the DREAMH2AUL project aiming to advance hydrogen’s application in the mobility sector to accelerate its adoption.
In providing a new hydrogen dispenser at a filling station in the A1 Deventer Business Park, hydrogen vehicles will have access to a steady flow of hydrogen with this and the trucks expected to be operational in mid-2023.
For the project, TotalEnergies Marketing Nederland will be responsible for adding a hydrogen option to the filling station with Zepp.solutions taking on the development of the trucks.
These trucks will be able to operate with a range of more than 600km by implementing a hydrogen powertrain to fuel the vehicle.
As well as this, Vos Transport Group and BCTN Group will each put a hydrogen-electric truck into service within their day-to-day operations with TNO to compare the performance of the trucks to alternatives on the market.
Should the project be successful, the consortium expects this will significantly increase the rollout of sustainable, hydrogen-powered road transportation.
