New order for Proton Motor to equip garbage collection vehicles
Puchheim near Munich, January 23, 2020 – The German high-tech market leader for hydrogen fuel cells and electric hybrid systems with a carbon-free footprint, “Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH” (www.proton-motor.de), from Puchheim in Bavaria, has received a new order from the company “E-Trucks Europe” (www.e-truckseurope.com). The customer, a specialist for the construction of electric-hydrogen hybrid commercial vehicles, which is based in the Netherlands and Belgium, has ordered five fuel cell systems from Proton Motor. The successful delivery of an initial order at the beginning of 2020 was preceded by the first HyRange®-45-solution of the Bavarian technology provider for range extension. Its integration into a vehicle is currently being implemented by E-Trucks Europe.
This order stems from the EU funding project “Refuse Vehicle Innovation and Validation in Europe,” “REVIVE”, (www.h2revive.eu). The corresponding tender, running from 2018 to 2021, is targeting the construction and commissioning of 15 commercial vehicles for refuse collection in Europe.
The drive for these refuse collection trucks is 100 percent electric, which makes them quiet and does not emit any greenhouse gases or harmful particulate matter. To increase the range, the vehicles will be equipped with a hydrogen fuel cell system that converts hydrogen into electricity, its only emission being clean warm water.
As a member of the consortium to which the REVIVE project has been allocated, Proton Motor Fuel Cell GmbH will be required to supply in total 14 fuel cell systems for the equipment of refuse collection vehicles. Utilisation of these vehicles is envisaged in eight regions or municipalities such as Breda, Helmond, Amsterdam, Groningen, Roosendaal, Antwerp as well as Bolzano or Merano in South Tyrol.
