Hydrogen refuelling business Element 2 has announced an agreement with XPO Logistics to transport hydrogen to Element 2’s UK-wide network of hydrogen refuelling stations.

Under the multi-year agreement, XPO will begin by transporting hydrogen fuel from partner production sites to Element 2 refuelling stations in the North and Midlands regions.

Element 2 is developing a network of hydrogen refuelling stations and last week revealed it is to partner Forecourt Trader of the Year winner and Top 50 Indie Exelby Services to develop two hydrogen refuelling stations in the North of England.

James Harris, chief operating officer, Element 2, said: “The safe, reliable transport of hydrogen across our network is of critical importance to our mission and to the success of the hydrogen economy. We’re very pleased to be able to work with one of the UK’s most trusted names in transportation to serve our locations and valued customers. We’re primed and ready to fuel the country’s road transport sector with high-quality, clean hydrogen fuel.”

Dan Myers, managing director – UK and Ireland, XPO Logistics, commented: “We share Element 2’s commitment to decarbonising the UK economy and firmly believe that green hydrogen will be playing a critical part in achieving this vital aim. Together, we’ll be creating a network to support UK commercial transport in making the necessary step change to a carbon-neutral future.”
