After the UK has launched its first hydrogen-electric truck by Tevva Electric that features Luxfer Gas Cylinders, a deal has been struck between Equitus Design Engineering and Innovations and Luxfer Gas Cylinders Division of Luxfer Holdings PLC to support the sustainable transport sector. The deal will see Equitus offer design support for Luxfer on numerous systems it is currently developing for sustainable transport sector clients including Tevva Electric, Van Hool and HVS.
Luxfer Gas Cylinders works with multiple commercial vehicle manufacturers around the world to supply industry leading hydrogen cylinders while also designing hydrogen fuel systems. With an 80 year legacy behind, Luxfer has a main base in Riverside, California, manufacturing facilities in Canada and China and boasts a specialist and expanding alternative fuel facility at its Colwick, Nottingham operation.
“At Luxfer, we are dedicated to creating a greener world for future generations! With over 150,000 alternative fuel cylinders in use and over 18,000 vehicles running with Luxfer alternative fuel cylinders, Luxfer is established as the go to supplier for cylinders and systems for alternative fuel solutions,” said Jim Gregory, European Business Development Manager at Luxfer Gas Cylinders.
“We are delighted, after a successful period of collaboration, to have signed an agreement with Equitus Design Engineering and Innovations. Their expertise will only bolster our growth ambitions during what is an exciting time for the sustainable transport sector.”
Meanwhile, Equitus, a Manchester, London and Bangalore-based design, engineering and innovation company, has pledged to support Luxfer with 3D modelling and CAD Design, draughting, structural and fluid mechanics assessments, in order to achieve their common goals in sustainable transport.
“Equitus sees this as a privilege. To be able to support forward thinking and ambitious British organisations like Luxfer as they look to create a brighter future for sustainable transport and mobility,” added Raam Shankar, Equitus Founder and CEO.
“This new relationship will help Luxfer accelerate their growth, whilst helping Equitus establish themselves as a reliable and competent value provider to the sustainable transport sector. As two UK companies we are collaboratively aligning with five United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), which given that not too long ago COP 26 was held in Glasgow, is very positive.”
