VANCOUVER — Loop Energy, a developer and manufacturer of hydrogen fuel cell-based solutions, announces an agreement with Aliant Battery, a division of ELSA Solutions SRL, a systems integrator based in Italy specializing in development of battery-electric solutions for commercial vehicles and stationary power applications.

This agreement marks a key step for Loop in advancing hydrogen-based electric solutions for commercial vehicles, and it allows Loop to meaningfully engage with Aliant’s extensive list of OEM customers that manufacture commercial vehicles and transportation fleets, as well as industrial and heavy-duty materials handling equipment.

Through this partnership, Aliant Battery will also become a value-added integration channel partner for Loop, on the one hand providing engineering service to Loop’s customers, including hydrogen fuel cell and battery electric systems integration, and, on the other hand, expanding the Loop Energy customer ecosystem by leveraging its market position to identify and engage prospective vehicle OEM and stationary power genset manufacturers looking to transition their product portfolios to the hydrogen electric technology.

“I am eager to develop hydrogen electric applications and systems in cooperation with Loop Energy, demonstrating how battery powered vehicles can benefit from hydrogen fuel cells to increase vehicle autonomy,” says Davide Pal Pozzo, Partner at Aliant Battery. “We have a long history of utilizing range extenders with internal combustion engines, and as hydrogen begins to play a key role in commercial vehicle electrification in the near future, we believe Loop Energy is the right partner with their advanced fuel cell solutions. Together, Aliant and Loop will be at the forefront of this technology adoption.”
