Industrial gas giant Linde will demonstrate Plug Power’s ProGen fuel cell engine in Class 6 and Class 8 vehicles, which will be used for the delivery of products.
The companies today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding to solidify their commitments.
Plug Power’s ProGen fuel cell engines are well suited to heavy-duty vehicles and, in long-haul transportation, provide a unique advantage over a battery electric vehicle.
Andy Marsh, CEO of Plug Power, said, “Plug Power values our long-standing relationship with Linde, and views Linde as a key strategic supplier of hydrogen fuel.”
“Both companies are vested in decarbonising hydrogen production in order to bring a true green solution to customers in line with Plug Power’s stated plans to have more than 50% of the hydrogen used be green by 2024.”
The fleet of hydrogen-powered vehicles are expected to be on roads in early 2021.
