Italian energy infrastructure company Snam, truck maker IVECO and powertrain manufacturer FPT Industrial are collaborating on hydrogen technology in the transport sector both in Italy and internationally.
Under a new agreement, the three partners will develop hydrogen solutions for light and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, as well buses.
The aim is to develop integrated sustainable mobility to promote further use of alternative drive vehicles, with a shared strategy of collaborative development of vehicles and distribution network.
The collaboration will also focus on compiling studies designed to plan and experiment with innovative refuelling solutions, technologies and infrastructure for fleets and professional customers.
Furthermore, FPT Industrial, IVECO and Snam said they plan to collaborate on sustainable mobility projects in the field of local public transport and public utility.
Within this context, further initiatives combining engagement and advocacy with institutions at a regional, national and European level will aim to facilitate the expansion of sustainable mobility solutions based on natural gas and hydrogen.
“With this agreement, we aim to strengthen the role of natural gas as an immediate solution for reducing emissions, leveraging Italian leadership in this sector, and to develop biomethane, and subsequently hydrogen, as key solutions for sustainable mobility in the future, particularly in the case of heavy-duty vehicles,” said Alessio Torelli, CEO of Snam4Mobility.
“Through Snam4Mobility, we are building an increasingly widespread distribution infrastructure which is already at the service of biomobility and will soon be for hydrogen.”
“Through our commercial partnerships, such as the one we are undertaking with FPT Industrial and IVECO, we want to collaborate with key players in the sector to grow and develop technology within the value chain at an international level, helping to reduce polluting emissions and achieve climate change objectives for the benefit of the community.”
