Nicholas Wrigley, Chairman of First Hydrogen, said, “We are very excited as First Hydrogen Automotive takes another step forward to decarbonisation and providing a sustainable energy-powered vehicle.   

“We are utilizing MAN eTGE vans for our demonstrators to build customer following and bespoke design references and this new phase of development will define First Hydrogen’s own vehicle design interior and exterior, optimised for hydrogen and fuel cell powertrains.  

“Our Energy Division is working to develop refuelling and green hydrogen production sites in Liverpool, Manchester, London and the Thames Estuary, which will serve our customers’ fleet of vehicles and other users of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
