HVS collaborates with Edwin C Farrall Transport

UK full cell truck manufacturer Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) has entered into a strategic collaboration with Edwin C Farrall Transport to explore the integration of Hydrogen Fuel Cell HGVs into its fleet.  

The group has a focus on delivering a sustainable road map of carbon emission reduction and management, and as a result has signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with HVS to commit to zero emission commercial vehicle trials. 

The MOA outlines the partnership’s objective to provide the Farrall’s Group with HVS hydrogen fuel cell HGVs when these zero-emission vehicles become available for trial in late 2025.

The sharing of vehicle data, TCO (Total Cost of Ownership) modelling, route planning, infrastructure support and performance optimisation are just some of the benefits of the MOA partnership, it said. 

Managing Director at Farrall’s Group, Matthew Farrall, said:

“Our team is continually looking at ways to reduce and improve our environmental emissions output. We all have a responsibility to look after our environment and as a family we are extremely conscious we must set a responsible example for all to follow. Our partnership with HVS allows us to explore the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and helps us to deliver a greener running fleet to improve our impact on local communities.” 

John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer for HVS said:

“Here at HVS, our focus is on collaborating with transport and logistics providers to help them achieve their net zero targets. We are closely aligned to the climate aims of the Farrall family and are looking forward to supporting them on their net-zero journey. Our close cooperation with the hydrogen supply chain will ensure that our vehicles offer a highly competitive TCO by supporting with the most appropriate hydrogen infrastructure for the organisation, and providing a zero-emission fuel cell vehicle that offers heavier payloads, longer range, and faster refuelling compared to battery electric alternatives.”
