Gilbarco Veeder-Root Prepares For The Hydrogen Transport Revolution

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Hydrogen Fuel News.

This is the first two paragraphs.

Gilbarco Veeder-Root today announces a strategic mission to become a pioneer in enabling future hydrogen-powered transportation.

It is making available a suite of compression, dispensing and software solutions, allowing the creation of a network of renewable or low-carbon hydrogen refuelling stations around the world.

Two statements from the article.

  • According to most industry experts, hydrogen is better suited for heavy-duty commercial vehicles than pure electric power, due to the rapid refuelling time, their weight, and duty cycles.
  • Hydrogen fuel cell trucks and buses are currently being developed by most of the leading global truck manufacturers and it’s predicted that 15% of commercial fleets will be hydrogen powered by 2030.

It looks like Gilbarco Veeder-Root have decided to join the hydrogen party.

I find this significant, as having a good hydrogen refuelling network, that operators know they can trust, will surely encourage them to decarbonise, by changing to hydrogen fuel.

  1. In a way you’d be amazed if Gilbarco Veeder-Root weren’t to engage in the dispensing of hydrogen, given that the company’s prime business is as the provider of refuelling and storage equipment for fuel stations. Presumably all their competitors, and their must be many must be planning their futures in the same light given they’ve got to take on technology that’s outside of their current experience.
