Hyzon, we all know, is a leading global supplier of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles that are zero-emission.
Geesinknorba, on the other hand, is involved in deploying zero-emission vehicles across Europe and will now have more than 300 trucks supplied by Hyzon during the next three years as per the contract.
Both the companies are expecting the annual demand to grow as decarbonization of waste collection starts to become a priority for customers in Europe.
Craig Knight, who is the CEO at Hyzon, is of an opinion that the partnership is born out of the fact that both the companies have a mutual ambition to improve the local community and reduce the effect on the global environment.
Geesinknorba, which has more than 7500 refuse collection vehicles on road, has over the years, been a pioneer in the manufacturing of zero-emission refuse collection technology and is operational in 30 countries.
Understandably, diesel-powered collection vehicles, specifically for refuse, are a victim of extremely poor efficiency and high maintenance costs.
Both Hyzon and Geesinknorba have decided to collaborate on ongoing maintenance as well as service to end-use customers and thereby make it easy for fleet owners to switch to electric.
