Chippenham-based Siemens Mobility has launched its first dual-fuel field-services van in partnership with Aberdeen City Council, introducing hydrogen to its road vehicle fleet.

The introduction of the new van demonstrates the company’s commitment to supporting the development of alternative energy solutions for transport technology.

In October Siemens Mobility announced global plans to develop and offer hydrogen systems for the rail industry and the company has well-advanced plans to launch hydrogen and battery-powered trains in Scotland and the rest of the UK.
