Launch of REVIVE project - for the validation and deployment of fuel cell refuse trucks in Europe
The launch of a groundbreaking project targeting sustainable and clean urban waste transportation in Europe took place on the 17th of January 2018 in Brussels (Belgium): REVIVE, which stands for Refuse Vehicle Innovation and Validation in Europe.
This project has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 779589. This Joint Undertaking receives support from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and Hydrogen Europe Industry and Hydrogen Europe Research.
The project will be coordinated by Tractebel and is based on a partnership of fifteen members. Among them, the vehicle (E-Trucks) and fuel cell (Swiss Hydrogen, Symbio FCell) manufacturers will work together to develop a high-performance fuel cell refuse truck. Fifteen fuel cell trucks will be operated and tested in seven deployment sites: Antwerp in Belgium, Amsterdam, Breda, Groningen, Helmond (operated by SUEZ Netherlands) and Roosendaal (operated by Saver) in the Netherlands and South Tyrol (operated by SEAB SPA and ASM Merano-Stadtwerke Meran) in Italy. The local coordination of the trucks deployment will be addressed by WaterstofNet and Tractebel.
