RONN discussions with a nairobi group for a hydrogen electric delivery truck pilot program
RONN announced it has entered into a formal discussion with Pauline Muthigani based in Nairobi, Kenya, as part of the new Africa push to commercialize hydrogen energy use in Nairobi, Kenya, and ultimately Africa, in both mobile and stationary applications.
“The alliance will cover an expected 3 phases,” announced Ronn Ford. “Phase one would be deploying our new class 3-6 hydrogen-electric logistic trucks through an initial pilot program followed by strategic purchases and deployment throughout Nairobi, Kenya, and potentially other African municipalities or fleets. Deployment could potentially begin as early as the 1st quarter of 2024. We will work with the Nairobi and Kenyan governments for land, tax, and regulatory concessions,” added Ronn.
“Phase two would create and implement a hydrogen hub for mobile and stationary applications, leveraging our relationships with Bayo-Tech,” Pauline Muthigani stated.
“Kenya will have the first electric hydrogen trucks and hydrogen hub. We are already negotiating concessions that we will need from the government, and we need to prioritize this under the hydrogen Policy in Kenya,” Pauline stated. “I have already started work on this plan and expect a definitive MOU within two weeks as it is our utmost desire. We will push to commercialize hydrogen power, clean the environment, and manufacturing and job creation are huge for us in Kenya and the new government.”
