Canadian company puts hydrogen-powered truck on the road

Harnois Énergies Wednesday said it is proud to be the first company to introduce a hydrogen-powered truck on Quebec's roads. This vehicle, built by Nikola Corporation and supplied by ITD Industries, represents a major step forward for the transportation industry and will be tested for a month. The truck opens the door for a future in which hydrogen power has a place in the energy portfolio of the company, according to Harnois Énergies.

The truck will be in operation on various routes in the province, allowing Harnois Énergies to test its efficiency and performance during real-life conditions. This pilot project is also an opportunity to demonstrate the advantages of hydrogen power to the public and other companies as an alternative energy source, all while participating in the decarbonization of heavy transport.

During this trial period, the truck will be fueled with hydrogen from the only multi-energy station in Quebec, located on Wilfred-Hamel Boulevard in Quebec City and owned by Harnois Énergies.
