Loop Energy™, a developer and manufacturer of hydrogen fuel cell solutions, announces it has won the tender process to supply Tevva Motors Ltd. ("Tevva"), a British electric and hydrogen truck pioneer, with its T505 (50 kW) Series fuel cell system for Tevva's 7.5 tonne electric truck platform. The partnership grows Loop Energy's European customer base and provides the opportunity for its fuel cells to power numerous vehicles in the coming years.
Tevva's tender process began with a single unit order in Q4 2021 to evaluate and test the fuel cell system. Loop Energy's product outperformed multiple offerings from international fuel cell manufacturers. The evaluation process focused on fuel efficiency and reliability, and to ensure seamless integration with Tevva's Fuel Cell Range Extender for its 7.5t truck platform. The truck is designed to provide operators with up to 500 kilometres (310 miles) of all-season service range.
Following testing, Tevva selected Loop Energy as its supplier and placed initial orders for multiple units. It now enters the Scale-Up Phase of Loop Energy's Customer Adoption Cycle. The orders were included in the company's previously announced purchase orders for 2022. Both companies are now working towards finalizing a broader supply agreement.
"By combining Loop Energy's hydrogen fuel cell with our 7.5t battery electric truck platform, Tevva is taking an exciting step towards delivering our zero-emission range-extended trucks," said Tevva Founder & CEO, Asher Bennett. "Our customers are passionate about the cost, performance and emissions of their fleets, so we are highly selective about the energy systems in our trucks. We are delighted to find a technology partner in Loop Energy that can support our ambitious performance expectations and growth plans – that aim to remove 10 million tonnes of global transportation CO2 emissions by 2030."
"Our customers are at the heart of everything we do, so we are delighted to be selected to deliver products that meet Tevva's performance expectations," said Loop Energy President & CEO, Ben Nyland. "The order shows we have the technology and production capabilities to supply to OEMs who are dedicated to manufacturing the next generation of commercial vehicles as we move towards meeting zero-emissions requirements."
