QUANTRON and Westgass Hydrogen sign Strategic Partnership Agreement for Hydrogen Production & Distribution
Quantron AG and Westgass Hydrogen have signed a Strategic Collaboration Agreement (SCA) for the deployment of zero-emission trucks in the Nordics (Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Finland and Denmark). The companies will collaborate to provide a joint offering based on hydrogen-powered electric vehicles from QUANTRON and the supply of hydrogen through a network of refuelling stations provided by Westgass Hydrogen.
Westgass will also be the green H2 supply partner for a future dispensing network across Europe. The bundled offering will be made available to customers as part of the 360-degree ecosystem Quantron-as-a-Service (QaaS).
Westgass Hydrogen is a Norwegian company that aims to promote the use of clean hydrogen as an alternative to fossil fuels. They distribute and sell green hydrogen with access to more than 25 hydrogen retail sites and supply across Norway.
QUANTRON sees the Nordics and its high hydrogen affinity in heavy duty as an ideal prooving ground for Quantron-as-a-service. This OEM-open ecosystem offers its customers through the Clean Transportation Alliance a 360-degree platform, including zero-emission vehicles as well as the associated infrastructure from green H2 generation to refuelling. As part of the Strategic Cooperation Agreement, Westgass Hydrogen is joining this partner network.
QUANTRON will begin the first phase of its commercial roll out to Norway in 2024, with Westgass selected as QUANTRON’s preferred green Hydrogen suppliers for QaaS clients in the Nordics. The parties have a joint ambition to get the first trucks with launch customers of Quantron-as-a-Service on the Norwegian roads in 2024.
Kinar Kent, CEO of Westgass Hydrogen AS, said:
We are excited to collaborate with QUANTRON on this joint offering and contribute to the transition to zero-emission within the transportation sector using green hydrogen as a fuel.
Michael Perschke, CEO of Quantron AG, said:
The collaboration with Westgass Hydrogen paves the way for Quantron-as-a-Service tailor made for Nordic transportation requirements.
“Besides dispensing green H2 to our QaaS clients, based on the competitive supply and distribution of green H2 by Westgass, this will also serve a supply partner for a H2 Fuelling company, where QUANTRON will give more insights during our upcoming Q-Days on 24.04.2023 in Gersthofen / Augsburg (Germany).”
This Agreement will also help to significantly decarbonize transport of goods as only one Heavy Duty 44 to truck emits up to 150 to CO2 per year and QUANTRON plans to deploy up to 500 Fuel Cell trucks only in Norway till 2027 allowing CO2 emission reduction of 75.000 to per annum through QaaS.
