Could you explain how you have partnered with other projects HECTOR and FCH JU REVIVE and how this benefits H2-share?
The municipal waste operator of Breda is operating 2 waste collection vehicles within the FCH-JU REVIVE project. These vehicles needed a refuelling station in anticipation of the multi-fuel HRS, built by TotalEnergies. To bridge the gap, they could refuel at our H2-Share mobile hydrogen refuelling station (the WyRefueller built by Wystrach). The City of Duisburg is also operating a hydrogen waste vehicle in the HECTOR project. They wanted to test their vehicle over long distance and Wystrach was able to showcase the mobile HRS. A demonstration and gathering was organised in Breda. The capability of the station was tested with a back-to-back refuelling of 2 waste collection vehicles ánd the H2-Share truck (piloting for DHL Express in Breda). The refuellings ran without any problems, showing the station’s easiness of use. So in essence, we shared knowledge and experience on truck technology, day-to-day operation and the hydrogen refuelling infrastructure. This overarching cooperation was made possible by Interreg and the FCH-JU. (See news article).
Could you quantify some of the expected long-term results of the project? Maybe in terms of CO2 reductions?
During the 2 years of demonstrations, H2-Share aims to have brought about a 75 ton CO2 reduction. The long-term target is to reduce GHG emissions with 1 million tons of CO2 per year. By reducing these carbon emissions, air quality will be improved significantly.
In the long run H2-Share also targets a 5% market share of heavy-duty hydrogen vehicles by 2030 and a stimulated H2 truck production in NWE.
