A 27-tonne hydrogen fuel cell rigid truck built by VDL started its first demonstration with BREYTNER as part of the EU-funded H2-Share project in Schelluinen, the Netherlands. (Earlier post.) Wystrach GmbH built a low-energy mobile hydrogen refueler to accompany the truck on its demonstration sites.
This hydrogen truck is unique in the Benelux. The trial marks the first time that such a truck will be demonstrated in a setting like this, certainly in combination with a mobile refueling station.
BREYTNER, a zero-emission transport provider, will operate the truck for three months in retail logistics, such as replenishing stores and feeder lines for zero-emission last-mile solutions. By testing the truck in different types of logistical processes, BREYTNER hopes to contribute to the question of where a hydrogen truck is best deployed.
After the demonstration at BREYTNER, the truck will go to one of the other project partners for its next demonstration.
