The cluster will be sponsored by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure as part of a national innovation programme for hydrogen and fuel cell technology.
Angela Titzrath, Chairwoman of HHLA’s Executive Board: “Port handling and heavy goods logistics will make their contribution to climate protection and improving the quality of life in urban areas. The key element here is the decarbonisation of logistics. That can also be achieved with the help of hydrogen as the operating energy. This is why I am delighted to be launching a cluster alongside committed partners to test this promising new fuel source. CPL will provide an additional boost to the transformation process.”
As part of the CPL project, HHLA has already signed a letter of intent with Hyster Yale Group, Inc., a leading developer and manufacturer of handling equipment, on the supply of hydrogen-powered empty container stackers and terminal tractor units. The vehicles will be powered by fuel cells from Nuvera. The delivery of the terminal tractor units is planned for the end of 2022, and the empty container stackers are to follow at the beginning of 2023. The funding guidelines will be coordinated by NOW GmbH and implemented by Projektträger Jülich (PTJ).
