- First zero-emission truck presented by Clean Logistics
- Already before presentation high demand for fyuriant in four-digit range
- Significant expansion of conversion capacities
Hamburg, June 23, 2022: Clean Logistics SE (ISIN DE000A1YDAZ7) today presented its first hydrogen-powered zero-emission truck to the public at the Stade airfield. With fyuriant, Clean Logistics is ushering in a new era in the field of environmentally friendly solutions for freight transport on the road and reaching another important milestone in its corporate history. As early as summer 2021, the company handed over pyuron, the first converted bus with fuel cell hydrogen drive in public transport in Europe, to Uckermärkische Verkehrsgesellschaft. In the process, the bus's ordinary diesel drive was exchanged for a zero-emission hydrogen-based drive. This is also possible with immediate effect for heavy-duty tractor units weighing 40 tons.
The trucks feature pioneering technology. Among other things, the first fyuriant is equipped with two hydrogen fuel cells with 2x120 kW output as well as hydrogen tanks with a volume of 43 kg. This enables a sufficiently high range of over 400 km and short refueling times of less than 15 minutes. The rear axle equipped with wheel hub motors has a maximum torque of 17,000 Nm, which gives the truck the appropriate power in any driving situation. Clean Logistics' in-house developed intelligent control system enables efficient control of the overall system in every driving situation. For example, the energy recovered during braking is temporarily stored in a battery and made available again for the next acceleration process.
Clean Logistics is already experiencing very high demand for its trucks and buses. The company is currently massively expanding its capacities in Winsen (Luhe). With the new production hall, which has a floor space of more than 10,000 square meters, Clean Logistics will be able to increase the number of vehicles delivered to up to 450 per year from the end of 2023.
Dirk Graszt, CEO of Clean Logistics: "We are very pleased to present our fyuriant today. The truck is an important milestone in decarbonizing the transport sector in Germany and Europe. With our trucks and buses, we are meeting with a high level of response in the industry. This is because we are already in a position to provide the market with zero-emission vehicles. Thanks to the conversion of classic diesel vehicles into zero-emission hydrogen vehicles, this is also being done in a very resource-friendly way. In this way, we will rapidly drive the transformation of mobility into a sustainable future."
The project is being funded by the German Federal Ministry of Digital Affairs and Transport as part of the implementation of the German government's Mobility and Fuel Strategy (MKS) with a total of around 3.3 million euros. The funding measure is coordinated by NOW GmbH. "We would like to take this opportunity to thank the BMDV for its support - without the funding, the prototype development, which represents the cornerstone for our further growth, would not have been possible," emphasizes Dirk Graszt.
In the context of the fyuriant world premiere, with its extraordinary visual design, Clean Logistics also presented its new corporate identity. This visual realignment is accompanied, among other things, by a new corporate design, a revised web presence and a new corporate logo. Clean Logistics thus underlines its positioning as a visionary and sustainable company with the ambition to lead heavy-duty transport into an emission-free future.
"By sharpening Clean Logistics' purpose and vision, the company's future viability is underlined. This is the next logical step in the evolution of the entire Clean Logistics Group," said Tom George, COO of Clean Logistics.
