In the year 2008, the largest Swiss retailer COOP announced to have a decarbonized operation in place in 2023. Beside measures for reducing CO2-emissions of goods production, real estate and supply chain management, also measures for the on-road transportation fleet were investigated. As an outcome of this investigation, on 4th November 2016 a production plant for green hydrogen, the first public hydrogen refueling station in Switzerland and the worldwide first 34 to fc-truck were presented to the public.
As a next step in the efforts for decarbonization of transport-mobility and as announced on 19th September 2018, a fleet of 1’000 fc-trucks will be built-up in Switzerland within time period of 2019 to 2023.
The presentation will cover the following topics
- Objectives and economic rational
- Technology of hydrogen production and supply
- Technology of 34 to fc-truck and operational experience
- Upscale of hydrogen production, supply and fc-truck fleet
