MiTAC-Synnex and Hyzon Motors to launch hydrogen trucks in Taiwan market
Monday, Rochester, New York, EV hydrogen fuel cell startup Hyzon Engines announced a significant partnership with the Taiwanese industrial conglomerate MiTAC-Synnex. The companies signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to develop commercial hydrogen vehicles and distribution models for the Taiwan Marlet.
Under the terms of the agreement (which is not binding), Hyzon and MiTAC-Synnex are affiliated HwaQi will work to establish a common operating model offering a portfolio of products, services and logistics operations tailored to the needs of the Taiwan Marlet. The companies plan to secure orders from municipalities and private companies, targeting the first commercial shipments in 2022.
Hyzon is expected to supply two fuel cell electric trucks to MiTAC-Synnex next year, in support of the conglomerate’s broader decarbonization efforts. Pending the successful deployment of these first trucks and the appropriate regulatory frameworks in Taiwan, Hyzon and MiTAC-Synnex plan to jointly create substantial business volumes for Hyzon FCEVs by Taiwan.
âThe partnership with MiTAC-Synnex allows Hyzon to expand its crucial work of decarbonizing heavy transport in Taiwan,” noted Craig knight, CEO and co-founder of Hyzon. âMiTAC-Synnex’s strong relationships, large operational footprint and market knowledge are invaluable as we seek to transition from commercial trucking into Taiwan to Hyzon vehicles for years to come.
Accelerate the adoption of Hyzon vehicles through Taiwan, the companies are evaluating the possibility of exploring hydrogen production and refueling infrastructure assets and partnerships to deliver green hydrogen to Hyzon fleets.
âOver the past 60 years, MiTAC-Synnex has established a track record of success, leading innovation in many growing industries. By collaborating with Hyzon, MiTAC-Synnex extends its commitment to reduce emissions and air pollution in Taiwan by addressing one of the biggest contributors, âsaid Matthieu miau, MiTAC-Synnex President and Chief Strategy Officer. âThe combination of Hyzon’s technology with the market experience of MiTAC-Synnex creates unique access to every step of the hydrogen value chain.
This announcement follows several recent partnership announcements from Hyzon regarding partnerships, spanning large green hydrogen production, distributed hydrogen hub models and heavy truck deployments in industry segments that significantly contribute to the global emissions. Helped by building tailwinds from pro-hydrogen decarbonization policy frameworks in the European Union, United States and elsewhere, fuel cell commercial mobility applications are expected to grow rapidly around the world.
Last month, Hyzon signed a similar memorandum of understanding with Japanese conglomerate Sogo Shosha. ITOCHU Company jointly pursue hydrogen business opportunities in the minerals and metals industry.
âHyzon’s singular goal is to decarbonize heavy mobility,â Hyzon said Knight said in making this partnership public. âThis requires alignment at all levels of the hydrogen value chain, from production to distribution, including off-take. “
