HYZON Motors has signed an agreement with AIDRIVERS to develop an integrated vehicle platform to produce autonomous zero-emission trucks, buses and coaches for off-road industrial mobility operations.
Under the agreement, HYZON and AIDRIVERS will jointly collaborate on the design, manufacture and delivery of autonomous-drive hydrogen-powered trucks, buses and coaches with an initial focus on ports in the Asia-Pacific region as end-users.
The first trial of a fully autonomous hydrogen fuel-cell powered truck is expected in 2021. The first fleet of operational trucks is expected to be deployed in 2022.
The use of traditional fossil fuels is still dominant in most operations. As industrial operators embrace the energy transition, the combination of automation and clean fuels marks a new chapter for many seaports and airports.
