Hydrogen Vehicle Systems (HVS) has recently announced an agreement with UK-based transport company Edwin C Farrall Transport. The aim is to explore the integration of hydrogen-powered fuel cell heavy-duty vehicles into the Farrall’s fleet.

Farrall’s Group is a third-generation family transportation company based in the northwest, and with a clear focus on delivering a sustainable road map of carbon emission reduction. With HVS, Farrall signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU), which outlines the partnership’s objective to provide the Farrall’s Group with HVS hydrogen fuel cell HGVs when these groundbreaking zero-emission vehicles become available for trial in late 2025.

“Our team is continually looking at ways to reduce and improve our environmental emissions output. We all have a responsibility to look after our environment and as a family we are extremely conscious we must set a responsible example for all to follow. Our partnership with HVS allows us to explore the benefits of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and helps us to deliver a greener running fleet to improve our impact on local communities”, said Matthew Farrall, Managing Director at Farrall’s Group.

“Here at HVS, our focus is on collaborating with transport and logistics providers to help them achieve their net zero targets. We are closely aligned to the climate aims of the Farrall family and are looking forward to supporting them on their net-zero journey. Our close cooperation with the hydrogen supply chain will ensure that our vehicles offer a highly competitive TCO by supporting with the most appropriate hydrogen infrastructure for the organisation”, added John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer for HVS.
