Hyvia with BWT Alpine F1 Team: it’s just the beginning
This seems to be a first step towards a future collaboration between HYVIA and the French F1 Team for its logistic needs. In fact, HYVIA provides professionals with a range of 3 Renault Master H2-TECH (Van, Chassis Cab and City Bus).
Statements from the CEOs
“Renault Group has strong ambitions in Formula 1 with BWT Alpine and in hydrogen mobility with HYVIA, the joint venture we created with Plug. Complementary to our electric offer, hydrogen provides a promising carbon free mobility alternative to support the energy transition”, commented Luca de Meo, CEO Renault Group.
“As leader in hydrogen solutions, Plug share the values of high-technology excellence with BWT Alpine F1 Team and with HYVIA. Plug already brings its expertise to HYVIA on fuel cells, H2 refueling stations and electrolyzers”, added Andy Marsh, CEO Plug.
“One year after its creation, HYVIA begins the launch of three hydrogen-powered light commercial vehicles with a complete and unique H2 ecosystem. It is a major human, technological and industrial challenge that we share with Renault Group, Plug and BWT Alpine F1 Team”, stated David Holderbach, CEO HYVIA (here’s our interview with him).
