The new agreement involved HVS providing Mannok with trial vehicles for testing the application of HVS hydrogen fuel cell trucks on its fleet. The trials are set to commence in late 2025. Following this phase, Mannok intends to convert part of its fleet to these zero-emission HGVs.

Mannok, known for its manufacturing and service excellence in the UK and Ireland, has been a leading provider of premium construction products and sustainable consumer packaging solutions for over 50 years. The partnership with HVS aligns with Mannok’s broader sustainability goals, reflecting its commitment to innovation and environmental responsibility.

“We are excited about this partnership with HVS as it aligns perfectly with our commitment to sustainability and innovation. By exploring the integration of Hydrogen fuel cell HGVs into our fleet, we are taking a crucial step towards achieving our net-zero carbon goals,” said Kevin Lunney, Chief Operations Officer for Mannok.

“We are delighted to partner with Mannok in pioneering the integration of hydrogen fuel cell HGVs into its vehicle fleet. This collaboration represents a significant stride towards decarbonizing the transportation sector and underscores our shared commitment to sustainability. We look forward to working together to transition to zero,” said John McLeister, Chief Commercial Officer at HVS.

The Transition to Zero Programme by HVS aims to support partners in their journey towards zero-emission transportation. Participants will engage in a trial involving HVS’ innovative Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV) HGVs, allowing them to experience the vehicles and hydrogen fuelling equipment firsthand. Comprehensive support will be provided to facilitate the transition to zero-emission fleets, including technology options, infrastructure guidance, finance options, and training programmes.
