“As a municipal service provider, it is not only our goal to deliver high quality,” explains Lord Mayor Eckart Würzner. “We also want to make a contribution to climate protection.”

Zöller-Kipper GmbH is delighted to have gained another strong partner in the green transformation of heavy commercial vehicles in waste disposal with the city of Heidelberg. The refuse collection vehicle was financed by the “H2Rivers” project of the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region, which is receiving 20 million euros in funding from the Federal Ministry of Transport. Heidelberg has ordered three more hydrogen vehicles and other cities in the metropolitan region, such as Mannheim and Ludwigshafen, will soon follow.

“With our hydrogen model project, we are shaping a sustainable future in the Rhine-Neckar metropolitan region,” affirms Dr Doris Wittneben from Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar GmbH. Zöller-Kipper GmbH is ready for further projects.
