HVS collaborates with Mannok

Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Mannok to explore the integration of hydrogen fuel cell HGVs into its fleet.

The strategic collaboration marks the beginning of a zero emission commercial vehicle trial showcasing Mannok’s commitment to sustainability to achieve its net-zero carbon goal by 2050.  

The MOA outlines the partnership’s objective to provide Mannok with trial vehicles to test the application of HVS hydrogen fuel cell HGVs on its fleet. The trial is set to commence when these groundbreaking vehicles become available for trial in late 2025. 

Following this phase, Mannok will be in a favourable position to initiate the conversion of part of its fleet to these cutting edge, zero-emission HGVs. 

HVS, headquartered in Glasgow, aims to revolutionise the heavy-duty commercial vehicle industry by building a native fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) from the ground up.

Kevin Lunney, Chief Operations Officer for Mannok, said: “We are excited about this partnership with HVS as it aligns perfectly with our commitment to sustainability and innovation. By exploring the integration of hydrogen fuel cell HGVs into our fleet, we are taking a crucial step towards achieving our net-zero carbon goals.” 

John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer at HVS, said: “We are delighted to partner with Mannok in pioneering the integration of hydrogen fuel cell HGVs into its vehicle fleet. This collaboration represents a significant stride towards decarbonising the transportation sector and underscores our shared commitment to sustainability. We look forward to working together to transition to zero.”
