The REVIVE (Refuse Vehicle Innovation and Validation in Europe) project partners met in Munich in mid-November for the first in-person meeting since 2019 (pictured). This time Proton Motor hosted the General Assembly, at which partners discussed the project’s progress, shared learnings and best practice to date and planned for the next period in the project. In addition to a presentation by Director Sales & Marketing of the host company, Manfred Limbrunner, Proton Motor CTO & COO Sebastian Goldner gave the REVIVE partners a tour of hydrogen fuel cell production in Puchheim.
The EU funding project REVIVE is targeting the construction and commissioning of 15 commercial vehicles for refuse collection in Europe. The drive for these refuse collection trucks is 100 percent electric, which makes them quiet and does not emit any greenhouse gases or harmful particulate matter. To increase the range, the vehicles will be equipped with the hydrogen fuel cell system HyRange® that converts hydrogen into electricity. Proton Motor is delivering 14 HyRange® fuel cell systems to be integrated into the zero-emission refuse collection vehicles developed by E-Trucks Europe from the Netherlands.
