The UK’s first Hydrogen Fuel Cell truck OEM, Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) has announced a partnership agreement with Explore Plant & Transport Solutions (Explore), to supply 30 HVS hydrogen electric tractor units onto their fleet.

Under this signed agreement HVS will provide service, maintenance and training support to ensure the safe use of hydrogen refuelling and driving.  

Additionally, hydrogen refuelling infrastructure will also be put in place to meet Explore's operational needs.

Chris Gatheridge, Operations Director for Explore said: “It is our firm belief that Hydrogen-electric fuel cell vehicles are set to revolutionise the long-haul and line-haul trucking industry, providing a clean alternative to traditional diesel engines.

“These new HVS units will significantly reduce Explore’s carbon footprint, and this Agreement underscores our commitment to advancing green technology within our business. We are excited to be collaborating with HVS to achieve this transition.”

John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer for HVS  said: “This landmark Partnership Agreement is testament to our shared vision of a sustainable future. Our innovative, zero-emission fuel cell technology provides fleet operators with the heavier payloads, longer range and faster refuelling required of modern logistics operations seeking to decarbonise their fleets.

“We are looking forward to working with Chris and his team as we both aim to lead the logistics industry in sustainability.”
