EU’s flagship hydrogen truck project kicks off
The International Road Transport Union (IRU), its members Fiap (Italy) and UTNRR (Romania) and the Austrian Economic Chamber (through IRU member Aiso) have joined the H2 Accelerate Trucks project to advance the decarbonisation of long-haul trucking in the European Union.
The projects, which involve hydrogen producers, infrastructure operators, and vehicle manufacturers, will test 150 hydrogen heavy-duty vehicles on the main north-south corridors connecting Scandinavia with Italy.
The H2 Accelerate partnership has also secured funding for the deployment of eight heavy-duty hydrogen refuelling stations in the EU. The industry requires a dense EU charging and refuelling network to decarbonise, IRU said. – (ben)
