The new hydrogen fuel cell bus and waste truck is the next step for Trelleborg municipality and Trelleborg Energi on the journey to reduce the municipality’s carbon footprint.

The hydrogen bus will be the first of 10 to join fleet in the Trelleborg Municipality’s first steps to reach zero emission by 2045.

H2X & Trelleborg, have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop the City’s first ever hydrogen high floor buses in collaboration with local energy company Trelleborg Energi, marking another major step towards making the municipal fleet zero-emission and cleaning up the city & outer regions air. 

The new environmentally friendly bus will be the first of the proposed high floor buses and the first from H2X Global in Europe. The new buses will have both hydrogen fuel cells and super capacitors for the use as a school bus across the city and outer regions.

The non-binding MOU between H2X and the Trelleborg Municipality creates additional jobs in Sweden as the production of commercial vehicles for Trelleborg will come from H2X’s European HQ based in Sweden where the full production and Service is located increasing further volume to the recent awarded MoU with the City of Gothenburg.

Head of H2X in Northern Europe Peter Westh said the company is pleased to bring the hydrogen buses to Sweden.

The MOU between H2X and Trelleborg is important for the regions transition to zero emissions

"H2X is paving the way for commercial vehicles across the Nordics and are especially pleased to have signed the MOU with Trelleborg Municipality in the form of a Joint Initiative for Hydrogen Buses for the school program. This on the back of our recent agreement with Gothenburg. This is a further step to connect our Zero emission powered vehicles along the European Hydrogen corridor," he said.

Magnus Sahlin CEO for Trelleborg Energi spoke about how momentous this was for the region.

"This memorandum marks another leap forward in the zero carbon ambitions for the municipality. We want to show that sustainable energy and mobility solutions are not about the future, but about making changes today," he said.

"The first hydrogen bus proves how we take concrete steps towards zero emission transports in the region. With the first fuelling station up and running in Trelleborg in January 2023, these initiatives are an amazing start in transforming the vehicle sector in this region."
