Clean Logistics has secured 5,000 hydrogen-electric trucks from GP Joule through a framework agreement. Delivery is scheduled between 2023 to 2027, with a pre-series expected by late 2023. The sales volume is in the low single-digit billion euro range for Clean Logistics.

The timing depends on when expected subsidies are approved. Clean Logistics and GP Joule said they have agreed on annual delivery volumes, but details of delivery terms and maintenance contracts still have to be fixed.

Dirk Graszt, CEO of Clean Logistics, said this was the largest contract of its kind in the world. Ove Petersen, CEO at GP Joule, added that Clean Logistics was “the perfect partner who will support us in covering the entire value chain from a single source, from the production and storage of hydrogen to the development of a corresponding infrastructure and the provision of hydrogen-electric vehicles.”

The contract has been made possible since Clean Logistics acquired the Dutch truck manufacturer GINAF Nederland in July. The acquisition enables the company to expand from its retrofit and conversion business into offering to develop and produce entire zero-emission trucks, also because GINAF has the status of an independent producer with the corresponding registration requirements of its vehicles in Europe.

Mentioning the acquisition in today’s announcement, Clean Logistics said it was “excellently positioned to significantly ramp up the independent production of trucks and buses with zero-emission hydrogen drive within the Group.”

The company will utilise the specially developed axle with wheel hub motors and the ‘HyBoss’ control system for building the new trucks.

Xpanse Drive Systems will develop the series production of fuel cell electric solutions for Clean Logistics.

Founded in 2009, GP Joule is a system provider for integrated energy solutions from solar, wind and biomass, as well as a utility-level partner for electricity, heat, hydrogen and electric mobility.

The company says the fleet of hydrogen-electric trucks will enable them to cover the entire value chain of hydrogen, running from production to delivery and providing its customers in logistics, trade and industry with the corresponding vehicles.
