The global demand for zero-emission commercial vehicles is rising as the world is becoming ever more committed to combatting climate change.
Hexagon Purus, with its purpose to help drive energy transformation through zero-emission solutions, announces the opening of its new engineering and manufacturing facility for battery and hydrogen storage systems in Kelowna, Canada. This is Hexagon Purus’ second opening of a new manufacturing facility this year, following the successful opening of its new hydrogen cylinder production facility in Westminster, Maryland, USA in January.
The 60,000-square-foot facility will support the annual production of more than 1,000 battery systems for heavy-duty vehicle applications and will employ up to 150 engineers and assembly technicians.
“We are currently providing battery and fuel cell electric systems for several heavy-duty trucking OEMs. This site will serve a dual role, not only as a highly automated battery pack production site but also a technical center of excellence for everything zero emission focused” says Todd Sloan.
