The city of Oldenburg can purchase two garbage trucks that are operated with state-of-the-art hydrogen technology.

The corresponding funding commitment was received from the Federal Ministry of Transport in June 2021.

“The city is receiving funding of 1.358 million euros and can get involved in an important future technology for the energy transition,” says Mayor Jürgen Krogmann.

“This is not only good news for us as a city but also for the entire network in the region that is committed to the expansion of hydrogen technology. This also includes the construction of a corresponding filling station in Oldenburg, for which there is now a calculable purchase guarantee with these two vehicles. “

City contribution

The two garbage trucks can now be ordered and will probably be used in Oldenburg next year. The city’s own share in the investment is around 150,000 euros.

Key element to climate neutrality

Green hydrogen is considered a key element on the way to climate neutrality in Germany. In the region, EWE plans to build a hydrogen production facility on the site of the natural gas storage facility in Huntorf (Wesermarsch district).
