The partnership builds on Hiringa’s technical expertise and relationships with international fuel cell manufacturers, integrators, and OEMs. Hiringa and TR Group will work together to ensure New Zealand-suitable solutions are available to meet heavy vehicle operators’ needs and introduce the technology to the country.
Hiringa Energy’s chief executive, Andrew Clennett says that TR Group’s “truck and leasing expertise is critical in ensuring we can offer decarbonisation pathways for all heavy fleet operators across our refuelling network. With Hiringa’s deep expertise in hydrogen mobility solutions and TR Group’s broad reach across New Zealand’s premiere heavy freight and transport companies, the partnership will be a catalyst in accelerating the decarbonisation of New Zealand’s heavy fleet.”
Our managing director, Andrew Carpenter says that customers are really interested in getting zero emission trucks on the road. “Our aim with this partnership is to help make it easier for clients to get to their goal and reduce some of the risks for them along the way.”
