Clean Logistics SE receives new orders for the delivery of hydrogen trucks
The initiative launched by Logistik Initiative Schleswig-Holstein e. V. includes, apart from Clean Logistics and Hypion GmbH, renowned companies such as EDEKA Handelsgesellschaft Nord (Neumünster), EDEKA AG (Hamburg), Ernst Krebs (Neumünster), F.A. Kruse jun. (Brunsbüttel), Herbert Voigt (Neumünster) and Netto Marken-Discount (Henstedt-Ulzburg site). Clean Logistics will make a decisive contribution to the success of the Initiative as an enabler by converting existing diesel-powered vehicles of the project partners to zero-emission trucks with hydrogen-electric drive systems. This innovation cluster aims to establish a sustainable hydrogen-based hub for freight transport in Neumünster. From the production of green hydrogen in the region to the distribution of the gas via an effective filling station infrastructure to the actual use in the transport and logistics industry, an economically viable overall system is being set up by the network.
Clean Logistics will convert seven conventionally diesel-powered semi-trailer tractors (40-tonne trucks) to zero-emission hydrogen drives. For this purpose, all combustion engine elements will be removed and replaced by a battery-electric fuel cell drive. The vehicles to be converted are expected at the Winsen site in the next few weeks.
In addition, Clean Logistics has signed delivery contracts with the haulage company Hans Wormser AG in Herzogenaurach, Bavaria, and the haulage company Pflaum GmbH in Speyer, Rhineland-Palatinate, for the delivery of one and two trucks, respectively. The semi-trailer tractors converted from conventional diesel drive to zero-emission hydrogen drive are likewise scheduled to be handed over to the customers in the first half of 2023.
Clean Logistics has thus obtained orders for a total of 12 vehicles, which were approved by the German Federal Ministry for Digital Affairs and Transport (BMDV) as part of the first call for funding under the Directive on the promotion of commercial vehicles with alternative, climate-friendly drives and associated refuelling and charging infrastructure (KsNI Directive). Clean Logistics had already concluded a delivery contract for hydrogen trucks with the DEVK subsidiary hylane in April 2022. The approval rate for applications submitted by Clean Logistics customers was hence a very good 80 %.
Dirk Graszt, CEO of Clean Logistics: "With the Hydrogen Initiative in Neumünster, we are taking a major step and contribute to the development and establishment of a hydrogen-based transport hub with a role model character in Germany. A local refuelling infrastructure is being created with a simultaneous guaranteed purchase of green hydrogen by fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs): a solution which scores points all along the line with its efficiency and sustainability. We are also experiencing a strong demand for our solutions beyond this. The shift in the haulage industry paradigm continues to gain momentum. In the coming months, our zero-emission vehicles will be seen increasingly often in the day-to-day business of haulage companies on the roads in Germany."
