Loop Energy Secures Design Win With Global Fire Truck and Special Purpose Vehicle Manufacturer

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA and SEVILLE, SPAIN –– Loop Energy™ (TSX: LPEN), a leading hydrogen fuel cell manufacturer, is pleased to announce it has been selected to supply fuel cell systems for a new fire truck platform by an established specialty vehicle OEM with significant global presence operating in 14 countries with over 1,400 employees.

The new hydrogen electric fire truck will be fitted with two of Loop Energy’s T505 fuel cell systems. In the first stage of the roll-out plan, a pilot project will see a vehicle put into operation at an airport in Spain.  In subsequent stages, the OEM is looking to scale production for use in other locations with production expected to begin in Q4 of 2023.

With this new partnership, Loop Energy is entering the market for special-purpose vehicles, which presents a significant opportunity for electrification via hydrogen fuel cells due to their unique operating requirements including high operational uptime and power needs.

Loop Energy’s Vice President of Sales and Business Development EMEAR, Luigi Fusi said, “Special-purpose vehicles like fire trucks have their unique challenges when it comes to electrification. Fuel efficiency and storage capacity play a critical role in determining range of the vehicle and its ability to operate longer without the need to refuel, which are critical as these vehicles are designed to service many mission-critical situations.  We are excited to see Loop Energy fuel cells being used in a new category of vehicles, and look forward to the successful completion of this pilot project.”

Loop Energy fuel cells were selected for their high fuel efficiency compared to competitive products – a key differentiator of the eFlow™ proprietary technology.
