Hydrogen truck designer and manufacturer HVS has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement with Mannok Build Ltd to explore the integration of its Hydrogen Fuel Cell HGVs into the Mannok fleet. The latter is renowned for its manufacturing and service excellence in the UK and Ireland and has been a leading provider of premium construction products and sustainable consumer packaging solutions for over 50 years.

The MOA outlines the partnership’s objective to provide Mannok with trial vehicles to test the application of HVS hydrogen fuel cell HGVs on its fleet. The trial is set to commence when these groundbreaking vehicles become available for trial in late 2025.  Following this phase, Mannok will be in a favourable position to initiate the conversion of part of its fleet to these cutting edge, zero-emission HGVs.
