November 3, 2020. FPT Industrial and Iveco, together with Snam, have signed a memorandum of understanding for technological and commercial cooperation in order to contribute to the decarbonization of the transport sector both in Italy and internationally by developing biomobility (biogas and natural gas) and hydrogen.
Firstly, the understanding calls for a collaboration between the three partners – active along the entire supply chain, from engines (with FPT Industrial) and commercial vehicles (Iveco) to distribution infrastructure and services (Snam, via Snam4Mobility) – to promote the central role of mobility with natural gas (bioCNG and bioLNG) and hydrogen. This will include innovative business models aimed at offering end-to-end solutions for light- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles, as well as buses.
The aim is to develop integrated sustainable mobility to promote further use of alternative drive vehicles, with a shared strategy of collaborative development of vehicles and distribution network. In this way, the collaboration will also focus on compiling studies designed to plan and experiment with innovative refueling solutions, technologies and infrastructure for fleets and professional customers.
Furthermore, FPT Industrial, Iveco and Snam plan to collaborate on sustainable mobility projects in the field of local public transport and public utility. Within this context, further initiatives combining engagement and advocacy with institutions at a regional, national and European level will aim to facilitate the expansion of sustainable mobility solutions based on natural gas and hydrogen.
