HTEC to deploy 100 hydrogen fuel-cell-electric trucks in B.C. – Truck News

The HTEC H2 Gateway Program will see 100 hydrogen fuel-cell-electric trucks deployed on B.C. roads, leased and managed through HTEC’s new Vehicle Leasing Corporation (VLC).

HTEC said it will also build and operate a network of up to 20 hydrogen fueling stations that will serve up clean hydrogen produced in Burnaby, Nanaimo, and Prince George, B.C.

Meanwhile, a North Vancouver facility will liquefy 15 tonnes per day of vented hydrogen byproduct. HTEC already runs five hydrogen stations in the province.

“Hydrogen technology is our best option when it comes to building a clean economy in B.C.’s commercial transportation sector, which accounts for 25% of total provincial emissions,” said Josie Osborne, minister of energy, mines and low carbon innovation.

“HTEC’s project deploys 100 hydrogen trucks, helping to reduce the sector’s reliance on fossil fuels. Innovative, forward-thinking projects like this, are driving our clean economy and creating good jobs far into the future.”

“We are grateful for the province’s support to scale-up zero-emissions, hydrogen-powered commercial transportation,” added Jeff Grant, vice-president of transportation solutions at HTEC. “Building on HTEC’s B.C. Hydrogen Pilot Trucks Project and the B.C. Hydrogen Ports Project, the H2 Gateway program will establish the first large-scale, heavy-duty hydrogen powered fleet of trucks to operate in BC.”

HTEC says its new VLC subsidiary will manage vehicle deployment and coordinated hydrogen supply and demand in targeted regions, focusing on Classes 7 and 8 trucks – both fuel cell and direct injection.

It will use proprietary telematics to track vehicle performance, and maximize usage and reliability.
