At 9:00 a.m. on September 1st, 2022, the Weichai hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicle strategic cooperation signing ceremony with the theme of “Green Power, Hydrogen Society” was held in Weifang, Shandong Province. After the operation handover of 200 hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicles on August 27th, Weichai signed another large order of 1100 vehicles, pressing the “acceleration key” for the commercial application of hydrogen fuel cells on a larger scale and in more scenarios.
At the meeting, Weichai and Sinotruk signed strategic cooperation agreements with Qingdao Shengtonghua Co., Ltd., Zibo Zhanhong Automobile Co., Ltd., Tongxin Logistics Technology Co., Ltd. and other customers. All contracting parties reached an agreement on deepening the promotion of hydrogen fuel cells in the field of commercial vehicles, and accelerated the large-scale commercial application of logistics and transportation scenarios. Through strong alliance, jointly seize the hydrogen energy track, jointly promote the rapid development of the hydrogen fuel cell commercial vehicle industry, and contribute to the realization of “Carbon Peaking and Carbon Neutrality Goals”.
The 1100 commercial vehicles signed in this batch cover 4.5t urban logistics vehicles, 18t logistics vehicles, 49t tractors and other series of products. The Weichai hydrogen fuel cell equipped with the vehicle has a power of 50-200kw, and has the characteristics of zero carbon, comfort, safety and reliability. It can meet the needs of many complex working conditions such as long endurance and low temperature, which can be called the ideal “hydrogen driving force” to achieve carbon neutrality in the future logistics and freight field.
This event also invited more than ten partners in the whole hydrogen energy industry chain of “production, storage, transportation, filling and utilization”, to discuss technological innovation, industrial collaboration, market expansion and other aspects, pool their efforts to build a mutually beneficial and all-win ecosystem, and strive to build a domestic leading and world-class hydrogen energy business demonstration cooperation model!
