Markus Körner (53) is strengthening the Clean Logistics team to expand sales of the conversion of heavy-duty diesel-fueled trucks to emission-free hydrogen fuel cell technology. After training as a car mechanic and then studying mechanical engineering, Mr Körner spent many years in a leading position in the service and sale of commercial vehicles – from vans to heavy trucks – for MAN Truck & Bus and Daimler AG.
Mr Körner will use his market knowledge and experience to find certified partners for converting large numbers of trucks to HyBat Trucks with hydrogen hybrid drive. The HyBat Truck prototypes 1-5 and the pre-production vehicles 6-30 are manufactured by eCap in Winsen (Luhe). Starting in 2021, production vehicles will be retrofitted by selected partners with kits supplied by Clean Logistics to meet the expected high demand – with more than 600,000 heavy trucks on Germany's roads alone.
With the handover of a grant from the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), Clean Logistics has been given additional planning security for its innovative business idea: the conversion of heavy diesel trucks to hydrogen hybrid drives. For that purpose, BMVI State Secretary Enak Ferlemann presented on 2nd October 2019 the notice of approval for the grant amounting to 3.3 million euros to the two managing directors of Clean Logistics, Dirk Lehmann and Dirk Graszt. In just one year, the first climate-friendly converted trucks will be able to get road approval.
Our team and our partners from E-Cap Mobility GmbH and Home of Classics GmbH & Co. KG celebrated the opening of the new production hall in Winsen an der Luhe. After only six months of construction, everything is now set for the first conversions of heavy Diesel-trucks to HyBat Trucks with hydrogen hybrid drive.
