OneH2, a North California-based hydrogen fuel production company, has been selected to supply zero emission hydrogen for a fleet of fuel cell electric trucks to be operated at the Port of Los Angeles and San Diego.
The Fast Track Fuel Cell Project (Fast Track) is managed by the Gas Technology Institute (GTI), technology partners include TransPower, Frontier Energy and the Centre for Sustainable Energy.
The hydrogen powered on-road heavy trucks have been funded through a California Air Resource Board (CARB) grant with $6.8m of matched funds from CARB and the technology partners.
OneH2 will provide mobile and fixed hydrogen infrastructure to allow truck refuelling, as well as the hydrogen fuel to power the fleet. The project expects to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 77 metric tonnes per truck per year.
Fast Track aims to provide the State of California and commercial enterprise with performance data in order to assess the benefit of the operation of hydrogen powered trucks.
It is expected that the data from the project will provide on-road heavy truck fleet managers with a clear pathway to switch to zero-emission hydrogen fuel without compromising day to day operating costs.
Fast Track was awarded $5.1m by California Climate Investments, a state-wide programme that focuses on reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment, particularly in disadvantaged communities.
