Cummins said it will provide hydrogen fuel cell electric powertrains integrated into selected original-equipment manufacturer partners' heavy-duty trucks for Air Products, as Air Products begins the process of converting its global fleet of distribution vehicles to hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
Air Products said it plans to convert its global fleet of 2,000 trucks to hydrogen fuel cell zero-emission vehicles. Cummins and Air Products expect the demonstration phase to begin in 2022.
