“We are happy to have secured a significant H2Station® order for fueling of heavy duty vehicles in the U.S. As the deployment of hydrogen as a fuel for the heavy-duty sector is moving faster than expected, we are also gearing up our efforts and technology developments more toward offering solutions that can accommodate growth in this segment,” says Jon André Løkke, Chief Executive Officer of Nel.
The H2Station® order has a total value of more than $6 million. The H2Station® equipment will be deployed in the U.S. and will be capable of fueling both heavy duty trucks as well as light duty vehicles.
