Element 2, the UK’s leading hydrogen refuelling business, has announced an agreement with XPO Logistics, a leading provider of freight transportation services, to transport hydrogen to Element 2’s UK-wide network of hydrogen refuelling stations.
Under the multi-year agreement, XPO will begin by transporting hydrogen fuel from partner production sites to Element 2 refuelling stations in the North and Midlands regions.
Network of hydrogen refuelling stations
Element 2 is paving the way for the rapid transition of heavy goods vehicles and commercial fleet road transport to zero carbon and zero emissions through its UK network of hydrogen refuelling stations.
By building a network of hydrogen refuelling stations and the associated infrastructure, Element 2 enables the transition to clean, green fuel needed to meet the UK’s zero carbon targets by 2050.
James Harris, chief operating officer, Element 2, said: ‘The safe, reliable transport of hydrogen across our network is critical to our mission and the success of the hydrogen economy. We’re very pleased to work with one of the UK’s most trusted names in transportation to serve our locations and valued customers. We’re primed and ready to fuel the country’s road transport sector with high quality, clean hydrogen fuel.’
Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, said: ‘We share Element 2’s commitment to decarbonising the UK economy and firmly believe that green hydrogen will play a critical part in achieving this vital aim. Together, we’ll be creating a network to support UK commercial transport in making the necessary step change to a carbon-neutral future.’
