Hyzon Motors has signed a binding agreement with JuVe Automotion GmbH (JuVe) for the selling of hydrogen-fueled heavy-duty trucks.

JuVe is a spin-off of Austrian supermarket chain MPREIS’s hydrogen effort, and will deliver the vehicles to MPREIS and other early adopters in the hydrogen fuel cell field. This announcement comes ahead of Hyzon’s planned public offering following the completion of a definitive business combination agreement with Decarbonization Plus Acquisition Corporation.

The first truck is scheduled to arrive in Q4 of 2021, with the rest vehicles arriving over the next three years. The initial batch of vehicles includes three distinct heavy-duty truck configurations, including tractor/puller and rigid chassis configurations, all of which are designed to accommodate refrigeration units.

The Hyzon trucks are scheduled to be constructed at Hyzon’s European factory in the Netherlands’ Groningen region, where orders for Hyzon-branded commercial vehicles have already been confirmed for delivery to various nations worldwide.

The relationship is significant since MPREIS is contributing to the transition to a zero-emission society. Along with constructing electric vehicle charging stations at a number of their over 300 locations and founding JuVe, MPREIS is currently developing its own hydrogen production facility near Innsbruck, Austria, as well as a network of hydrogen refueling stations. Notably, MPREIS will use hydropower to generate green hydrogen, so establishing an entirely renewable energy ecosystem.

Additionally, the companies have inked an agreement to work on the H2Alpin feasibility study. The study’s objective is to demonstrate that fuel cell electric vehicles are capable of meeting the challenges of alpine mobility, which include high hills and inclement weather.

The findings, which include ecological and life cycle assessments, are likely to influence future uses of hydrogen-powered passenger and commercial transport in the most extreme regions. Hyzon did comparable trials in Australia with success, demonstrating the applicability of fuel cell electric vehicles under intense heat and in the face of extremely difficult, ultra-fine dust.
