The launch of the project REVIVE, which stands for Refuse Vehicle Innovation and Validation in Europe, took place on the 17th of January 2018 in Brussels (Belgium). This is the first project of its kind and will be the occasion to boost commercialization of heavy-duty fuel cell trucks while demonstrating the added-value of this zero-emission technology for the environment and public. REVIVE’s overall objective is to be the largest demonstration of fuel cell-range extender trucks to date, one of very few options for the decarbonization of heavy duty vehicles. For urban trucks, there is an increasing need for zero emission solutions to comply with upcoming access restrictions imposed by cities as part of pollution reduction strategies. The REVIVE project will serve as a major step towards the commercialization of fuel cell refuse trucks and developing technology ready for application to all truck types which is able to meet the needs of heavy-duty transport operators.

Fifteen fuel cell trucks will be operated and tested in seven deployment sites: Antwerp in Belgium, Amsterdam, Breda, Groningen, Helmond and Roosendaal in the Netherlands and South Tyrol in Italy.

The partners are: CEA, City of Antwerp, City of Amsterdam, City of Breda, City of Groningen, Element Energy, E-Trucks Europa, Saver, SEAB SPA, ASM Merano-Stadtwerke Meran, SUEZ Netherlands, Swiss Hydrogen, Symbio F-Cell, Tractebel, WaterstofNet.

The project has received funding from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking under grant agreement No 779589.
