H2X Global to supply Trelleborg with hydrogen buses and a waste truck
H2X Global Limited has recently announced that it has signed a Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with Trelleborg Municipality. H2X will collaborate with Trelleborg Energi, a local energy company, to develop the City's first ever hydrogen high floor buses and a waste truck. This marks another significant step towards cleaning up the air in the City and outer regions of Sweden.
Being the first of the proposed high floor buses and the first from H2X Global in Europe, the new environmentally-friendly bus will have both hydrogen fuel cells and super capacitors. Across the City and outer regions, the vehicle will be used as a school bus.
Under the non-binding MOU, H2X's Sweden subsidiary will produce the commercial vehicles for Trelleborg, building on the recent MOU H2X has with the City of Gothenburg. This in turn will create new auto jobs in Sweden.
H2X's Head of Northern Europe, Peter Westh, says:
"H2X is paving the way for commercial vehicles across the Nordics and are especially pleased to have signed the MOU with Trelleborg Municipality in the form of a Joint Initiative for Hydrogen Buses for the school program. This on the back of our recent agreement with Gothenburg...is a further step to connect our "Zero Emission" powered vehicles along the European Hydrogen Corridor."
H2X CEO and Founder, Brendan Norman, says:
"We are pleased that Trelleborg and Gothenburg have entered partnership with H2X where we (will) both work together in delivering not only the vehicles tailored for their needs but the total solution for their vehicle management.
“Sweden has one of the most progressive hydrogen strategies, projects and activities in Europe, but we need to continue to act now to tackle climate change to improve our cities air quality. Introducing hydrogen buses and commercial vehicles to authorities’ fleet, by using the right technology for the varying operational requirements will help us all breathe cleaner air.”
