Hexagon Purus (Kassel, Germany) has signed a Long Term Exclusive Supply Agreement (LTA) with one of the leading European bus suppliers. Under the agreement, Hexagon Purus will supply hydrogen storage systems for the OEM’s next-generation two-axle (12 meters) and articulated (18 meters) fuel cell bus offerings. This OEM is a long-time Hexagon Purus customer. Deliveries under the LTA will take place between 2021 and 2024 with an estimated sales value of around 30 million euros (including some deliveries already made in 2021).
The hydrogen storage systems will be supplied by Hexagon Purus’ facilities in Kassel, Germany, and will include lightweight Type IV cylinders from Hexagon Purus, providing a range of 350 kilometers.
“This agreement is a testament to the close collaboration with our long-standing client. We both share a common vision and interest: to drive zero emission mobility, ”says Michael Kleschinski, EVP Hexagon Purus. “We are pleased that an increasing number of countries are considering hydrogen technology, which is an excellent green solution for decarbonizing public transport. “
According to Hexagon Purus CEO Morten Holum, the company is seeing the adoption of zero-emission mobility solutions accelerate, which will ultimately lead to the rapid transition of more commercial vehicles, especially city buses, Holum reports. .
