The world’s first plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell class “8” truck has been deployed into routine drayage operation at the Port of Long Beach today. Total Transportation Service, Inc.(“TTSI”), in conjunction with Vision Motors have released the “Tyrano” into service which features Hydrogenics HD16 (16.5 kW continuous power) HYPM fuel cell power modules hybridized with Lithium Ion battery set.

“We are proud to have invested in this cutting-edge technology which results in zero-emissions at the tail pipe” notes Vic LaRose, President of TTSI. TTSI took possession of the “Tyrano” last July for testing, and January 11th will mark the first date that the “Tyrano” will be deployed at the Port for routine drayage operations.
