November 30 (Renewables Now) - Plug Power Inc (NASDAQ:PLUG) said today it has teamed up with French engineering company Gaussin SA (EPA:ALGAU) to develop green hydrogen-powered vehicles.
The companies plan to start offering vehicles, including big machines like terminal tractors and smaller ones like automated guided vehicles, equipped with ProGen engines running on green hydrogen in early 2021.
The partnership will eye new cargo markets, such as logistic centres, seaports and airports in Europe, the US and other countries.
"We are working to integrate ProGen engines in cargo transportation and on-road vehicle applications with best-in-class partners to make the freight and logistics markets greener with our green hydrogen and sustainable energy solutions,” Plug Power CEO Andy Marsh noted.
