PRINCE GEORGE – Hydra Energy achieved another significant milestone in its Prince George, British Columbia project rollout by signing detailed MOUs with eight new commercial truck fleets in the region.
This represents 82 Class 8 trucks to be retrofitted using Hydra’s proprietary hydrogen-diesel, co-combustion conversion technology. Hydra is currently building in Prince George to be operational in 2024 which leverages green hydrogen produced on site by two 5-megawatt electrolysers powered with hydroelectricity.
These new fleet commitments and supporting hydrogen infrastructure from Hydra will make this the largest commercial deployment of hydrogen-diesel co-combustion transportation vehicles in the world as Hydra continues to fast-track emissions reductions in the hard-to-abate trucking sector.
“Upon signing our first commercial fleet customer in Prince George and breaking ground on our local refuelling station last year, we had an initial goal to secure 65 heavy-duty trucks to leverage the new station once operational next year. We’re pleased to surpass this target with the signing of these eight fleets highlighting the continued interest in hydrogen trucking and the benefits it delivers for fleets of all sizes, even with heavy payloads in challenging weather and road conditions like those found in Northern B.C,” explained Hydra Energy CEO, Jessica Verhagen.
