the transport industry's need for fossil-free fuel. "

Ready access to green

of 800 VDC.
hydrogen for other applications. Installations at multiple
locations could enable a network with locally produced
green hydrogen available for the transport sector.
" The transport sector is undergoing a paradigm shift,

including from its Americas operations.
and heavy-duty applications, as well as for hydrogen-fueled combustion
engines. The arrangement will ensure that no surplus hydrogen goes to
waste and that the cost efficiency of recycling this byproduct and converting
it to energy will be passed on to customers, Volvo said.
As part of the collaboration, a hydrogen filling station will be built
alongside Ovako's plant in Hofors, Sweden, allowing Volvo to start
fueling its hydrogen-powered test fleet " in a couple of years from
now. " The initiative is supported by the Swedish Energy Agency.
With the new hydrogen plant in Hofors, Ovako claims it will be the
first in the world to heat steel with hydrogen prior to rolling, marking
a major step towards climate-neutral steel production. The technical
solution also will enable large-scale and cost-effective production of

and green hydrogen will be one of the most important
energy vectors in the transport industry for long-haul
and heavy freight, " said Lars Stenqvist, Chief Technology
Officer at Volvo Group. " Decentralized hydrogen production
in the steel industry fits very well with the transport
industry's need for fossil-free fuel. This technological
solution is scalable because it can be used by the steel
industry in large parts of the world. Working in partnership
with other industries to be involved in the entire
value chain around our transport solutions is essential. "
Access to green hydrogen has become more critical
for Volvo Group and Daimler Truck since the launch of
their joint venture cellcentric, which is developing fuelcell
systems for use in commercial vehicles and other
applications. The OEMs plan to start with customer tests
of their fuel-cell trucks in about three years and to be in
series production during the second half of this decade.
Volvo and other truck manufacturers are calling for
the installation of around 300 high-performance hydrogen
refueling stations suitable for heavy-duty vehicles
by 2025. The collaboration with Ovako is an important
step toward that goal, Volvo said.
