Suttons Tankers has won a three year contract with Ryse Hydrogen for the exclusive provision of logistics services to transport bulk hydrogen gas from the North West to the capital for Transport for London.
As part of their commitment to become a zero-carbon city by 2050, TfL have purchased 20 new hydrogen fuelled buses which is a prominent move towards providing more sustainable methods of transportation.
Ryse Hydrogen recognised Suttons as a market leader in the logistics sector for bulk gas distribution. Their national network of strategically positioned sites, reputation for class-leading levels of safety and the comprehensive engineering and technical support were key factors in being awarded the contract.
The contract will be going live at the end of September with a phased transport solution leading to a day and night time operation once the capital’s fleet is fully operational. Due to its skilled workforce, Suttons are able to offer a maintenance package for the service and testing of the customer’s kit to ensure the highest levels of compliance, safety and efficiency.
Michael Cundy, Managing Director of Suttons Tankers, said:
“We are thrilled to be awarded this contract with Ryse Hydrogen which represents a significant move in TfL’s pledge to offer more sustainable modes of transport. This will demonstrate to the wider public transport sector the practical and environmental benefits of hydrogen fuelled technology.
“This work with Ryse Hydrogen builds upon our strategy of delivering service excellence and our ability to add value to our customers through providing more than just a haulage solution.”
Jo Bamford, CEO of Ryse Hydrogen:
“Suttons Tankers are a reputable logistics provider of bulk gas which made them the obvious partner of choice. Their attention to detail and ability to create a bespoke solution based upon our requirements were second to none.
“We look forward to working with Suttons on this contract and are proud to be supporting the capital in its efforts to reduce its emissions.”
Suttons operates in the UK with a fleet of more than 700 vehicles focused on the chemicals, gas and fuel sectors and internationally with key business centres in New Jersey, Widnes, Antwerp, Ludwigshafen, Kuantan, Singapore, Shanghai and Tokyo.
