Norweign wholesaler turns to hydrogen

Cummins’ hydrogen fuel cell modules are powering four electric Scania trucks for Norway’s largest grocery wholesaler ASKO as part of the company’s commitment to efficiency, low emissions and sustainable development.

ASKO has switched its 27-tonne trucks’ internal combustion to an electric engine, which is powered by fuel cells fed with hydrogen and managed with rechargeable batteries.
