Two major truck manufacturers have contracted Hexagon Purus (Oslo: HPUR) in North America to deliver complete vehicle integration of two Hydrogen-powered class 8 trucks. The total sales value is approximately USD 2.2 million (approx. NOK 20 million).
Hexagon Purus will assemble and deliver the complete trucks that involve integrating an electric drivetrain, a fuel cell module, and the Hexagon Purus ProCabTM Hydrogen Storage system and Hexagon Purus ProPackTM high energy density Li-ion battery packs.
“The momentum for zero-emission mobility continues to strengthen. We see growing interest in our fuel cell electric drivetrain technologies, and hydrogen will play an important role in the future of trucking,” says Todd Sloan, EVP Systems, Hexagon Purus.
The trucks will be delivered starting Q2 2022.
