Hydrogen powered trucks offer a zero emission alternative
Hydrogen internal combustion engine and fuel cell vehicles offer a zero emission alternative with high operational flexibility allowing for long-haul deliveries, while featuring a relatively short refuelling time.
Hydrogen fuel constitutes a good fit for a wide range of heavy-duty utilisation patterns, with hydrogen powered vehicles able to deliver payload capacities and a total cost of ownership most comparable to diesel trucks.
Reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 90%
The European Union (EU) plans to reach carbon neutrality by 2050, with the transport and logistic industry being called upon to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 90%. Industry action is pivotal, as over 75% of all freight transport today relies on road transport.
A recent study commissioned by the European Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) produced a commitment for the transport sector in Europe to deploy up to 100,000 Hydrogen Fuel Cell heavy-duty trucks, as well as up to 1,500 hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS), with hydrogen powered trucks set to become the cornerstone for achieving CO2 reduction targets.
The hydrogen refuelling solution for hydrogen fuel vehicles
The world’s leading vehicle manufacturers are actively developing hydrogen fuel vehicles now more than ever, with heavy-duty applications at the forefront. However, the lack of fixed hydrogen refuelling stations presenting limited accessibility to hydrogen fuel is hindering the introduction of such vehicles across the EU & UK.
For HGV vehicle fleet owners looking for a low-cost, reliable refuelling solution that can help get their hydrogen vehicle fleet off the ground fast, there’s Pioneer!
The Pioneer 145 Mobile Hydrogen Refuelling Station is the ideal solution for small fleets of hydrogen powered trucks. Pioneer 145 can service up to 7 heavy-duty trucks, delivering efficient hydrogen vehicle refuelling in 20-60 minutes.
Typically half the cost of a traditional hydrogen refuelling station, the Mobile Pioneer HRS provides a complete solution for in-field and mobile hydrogen refuelling to enable the localised distribution, storage and dispensing of hydrogen fuel.
- Combined hydrogen gas storage, distribution and dispensing solution
- Low cost - capital cost significantly lower than a fixed Hydrogen Refuelling Station
- Reliable - mobile nature enables units to back each other up, resulting in a more reliable hydrogen refuelling network.
- Mobile - rapid deployment, no fixed utilities
- Easily scalable - facilitates growing hydrogen powered vehicle fleets
