EQS-News: Clean Logistics SE
/ Key word(s): Miscellaneous
Lower Saxony's Environmental Minister, Olaf Lies, presents Clean Logistics SE with a grant notification in the amount of around EUR 7.6 million for a planned development project
Furthermore, the project aims to develop and build up to five prototypes of the medium-duty truck class with an electric drive concept equipped with a scalable hydrogen fuel cell system as a range extender or main energy source. This type of vehicle can be used around the clock in urban and regional distribution transport thanks to its performance, emission-free drive and especially its low noise emissions. The vehicles are to be actively used and tested in distribution traffic for this purpose. In addition to the development of the prototypes, a possible serial production is already to be prepared conceptually.
Olaf Lies, Minister for the Environment, Energy, Construction and Climate Protection of the State of Lower Saxony: “We urgently need to reduce CO2 emissions in transport in order to achieve our climate targets. To do this, we need not only concepts in the passenger car sector, but alternative drive systems for all vehicle classes - including freight transport. There is currently no manufacturer on the market that offers medium-duty trucks with fuel cell electric drive as a series vehicle. But we absolutely have to get there. However, we do not need individual solutions or conversions, but a universally practicable concept. I am pleased that a project from Lower Saxony is making headway here and that we can support it with state funds."
Florian Brandau, Co-Founder and Managing Director of XPANSE Powertrain GmbH and CTO of Clean Logistics SE: "We are very pleased about the funding from the state of Lower Saxony. Our goal is to tackle the blind spot of zero-emission freight transport in medium-duty trucks as quickly as possible with series production-ready vehicles. What counts is speed and cost-effective solutions to close this gap as soon as possible. This is the only way to significantly reduce CO2 emissions from road traffic, make a significant contribution to clean and liveable urban environments and take freight transport towards a green age."
As a development company for the creation of future-proof drive systems, XPANSE will be responsible for the technical architecture development and system definition and will manage the commissioning. CLT will take over prototype manufacturing and quality assurance and will be responsible for component sourcing.
