Veteran Express Secure Logistics (VEXSL) has successfully completed the hydrogen conversion of its first armored vehicle as part of the VEXSL Hydrogen Project. The conversion was carried out by Hydra Energy, and this milestone marks the beginning of VEXSL’s transition to a hydrogen-powered fleet. The converted truck will now be used for return-to-base transport routes in and around Edmonton. VEXSL plans to convert the remaining armored vehicles in its fleet and utilize hydrogen refueling infrastructure at Edmonton International Airport. By adopting hydrogen technology, VEXSL aims to reduce its environmental impact and operate at diesel-equivalent fuel prices. VEXSL CEO Cole Fouillard expressed enthusiasm for this environmentally friendly solution and highlighted the benefits it brings to the trucking industry. Hydra Energy CEO Jessica Verhagen emphasized the partnership with VEXSL as a crucial step in establishing a hydrogen corridor in western Canada and praised the company’s commitment to innovation and sustainability. The collaboration between VEXSL and Hydra Energy is set to convert nearly two dozen vehicles in VEXSL’s fleet.
