Fifteen fuel cell trucks will be operated and tested in eight deployment sites: Antwerp in Belgium, Amsterdam, Breda, Groningen, Helmond (operated by SUEZ Netherlands) and Roosendaal (operated by Saver) in the Netherlands, South Tyrol – Bolzano and Merano – (operated by SEAB SPA and ASM Merano-Stadtwerke Meran) in Italy and Freiburg (operated by AndreyGroup) in Switzerland.

Doubling the range

The vehicle manufacturing partner, E-Trucks, will integrate European fuel cell systems from three suppliers into its existing electric truck platform, doubling its operational range and allowing it to meet the demanding duty cycles of European waste operators in real-world, day to day urban waste collection activities. The aim is to trial 15 high performance fuel cell refuse trucks in a normal operating environment in 8 deployment sites for at least two years. The 15 trucks will be operated by the usual waste collection fleet operator for the city in question, which is either the city authority itself, or a private waste contractor. Moreover, these vehicles will be operated on a daily basis along equivalent duty cycles to conventional diesel based trucks, performing back-to-base missions every day. The vehicles will be operated for at least 24 months, but some will be operated for up to 34 months.

More information on each demonstration site coming soon.
