Loop Energy has won the tender process to supply Tevva Motors Ltd with its T505 (50 kW) Series fuel cell system for Tevva’s 7.5-tonne electric truck platform.
Tevva (a British electric and hydrogen truck company) started its tender process with a single unit order in Q4 2021 to evaluate and test the fuel cell system.
The partnership grows Loop Energy’s European customer base and provides the opportunity for its fuel cells to power numerous vehicles in the coming years.
The evaluation process focused on fuel efficiency and reliability and ensured seamless integration with Tevva’s Fuel Cell Range Extender for its 7.5t truck platform. The truck is designed to provide operators with up to 500 km of all-season service range.
Following testing, Tevva selected Loop Energy as its supplier and placed initial orders for multiple units. It now enters the Scale-Up Phase of Loop Energy’s Customer Adoption Cycle. The orders were included in the company’s previously announced purchase orders for 2022.
Asher Bennett, Tevva Founder & CEO, said, “Our customers are passionate about the cost, performance and emissions of their fleets, so we are highly selective about the energy systems in our trucks.”
Ben Nyland, Loop Energy President & CEO, added, “The order shows we have the technology and production capabilities to supply to OEMs.”
