Glasgow G75 0QF, United Kingdom- Hydrogen Vehicle Systems Limited (HVS)., a hydrogen fuel cell truck manufacturer, has entered into a strategic partnership with Edwin C Farrall Transport Ltd., (Farrall’s Group) to integrate Hydrogen Fuel Cell Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs) into Farrall's fleet.

Farrall’s Group, a third-generation transportation company in the northwest, has signed an MOA with HVS to trial zero-emission hydrogen fuel cell HGVs starting in late 2025. The partnership aims to reduce carbon emissions and includes benefits such as vehicle data sharing, TCO(Total cost of ownership) modelling, route planning, infrastructure support, and performance optimization.

Mr. Matthew Farrall, Managing Director at Farrall’s Group said, “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.”

Mr. John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer for HVS said, “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, and providing a zero-emission fuel cell vehicle that offers heavier payloads, longer range, and faster refuelling compared to battery electric alternatives.”
