Quantron AG, a leading provider of emission-free solutions for sustainable passenger and freight transport, and Norwegian Hydrogen AS, a producer of green hydrogen and operator of hydrogen refueling stations, have announced a five-year strategic collaboration to promote hydrogen-powered heavy-duty trucks in the Nordic region. The partnership aims to accelerate the transition towards zero-emission logistics in the Nordics, which include Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Finland, and Denmark.
QUANTRON is an early mover to introduce the latest generation of hydrogen trucks to the Nordic market. The heavy-duty truck QUANTRON QHM FCEV offers a range of up to 1.500 km depending on the customer need, making it ideal for long-haul transportation.
Norwegian Hydrogen joins the Clean Transportation Alliance launched by QUANTRON and will be the preferred hydrogen supplier for QUANTRON in the Scandinavian countries, supplying green hydrogen through its production facilities. The H2 refueling stations there will be operated by the newly founded subsidiary VIREON AS. This enables QUANTRON customers to benefit from the comprehensive Quantron-as-a-Service (QaaS) offering, which ranges from vehicle procurement and the corresponding infrastructure to the supply of green hydrogen.
Michael Perschke, CEO of QUANTRON: “QUANTRON is in the process of setting a new standard in emission-free transport of people and goods. Our goal is to offer comprehensive solutions that not only include the vehicles themselves, but also energy deliveries and the necessary infrastructure. In Norwegian Hydrogen, we have found an excellent partner to achieve our ambitions in the Nordic market.”
Jens Berge, CEO of Norwegian Hydrogen AS: “Norwegian Hydrogen has established a dedicated subsidiary to build a network of hydrogen refueling stations along major transportation corridors across the Nordic region, and the agreement with QUANTRON represents a substantial contribution to our ambitious growth strategy. It is also a great recognition to be selected as a strategic partner by such an innovative and leading company as QUANTRON. We are also very excited to join QUANTRON’s Clean Transportation Alliance as a preferred supplier and enabler of the QaaS solution in the Nordics.”
