Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) has signed a Partnership Agreement with Explore Plant & Transport Solutions to supply 30 HVS hydrogen electric tractor units onto their fleet.  
 
HVS will deliver 30 state-of-the-art hydrogen-powered fuel cell tractor units for Explore to deploy on their fleet across the UK.

The vehicles will be supported by a service and maintenance plan, full training on the safe use of hydrogen, refuelling and driver training, and a hydrogen fuelling infrastructure that fully meets the needs of their operation.  
 
Chris Gatheridge, Operations Director for Explore says, “It is our firm belief that Hydrogen-electric fuel cell vehicles are set to revolutionise the long-haul and meet the heavy demands of the construction logistics sector, providing a clean alternative to traditional diesel engines. These new HVS units will significantly reduce Explore’s carbon footprint, and this Agreement underscores our commitment to advancing green technology within our business. We are excited to be collaborating with HVS to achieve this transition.” 
 
John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer for HVS, comments, “This landmark Partnership Agreement is testament to our shared vision of a sustainable future. Our innovative, zero-emission fuel cell technology provides fleet operators with the heavier payloads, longer range and faster refuelling required of modern logistics operations seeking to decarbonise their fleets. We are looking forward to working with Chris and his team as we both aim to lead the logistics industry in sustainability.”  
 
HVS' state-of-the-art powertrain solution, designed as a native Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) from the ground up, promises superior efficiency, outstanding performance, and a reduced environmental impact by offering heavier payloads, longer range and faster refuelling compared to battery electric alternatives.
