UK’s “first” zero emissions ambulance on track

11 February 2021

Hydrogen fuel cell vehicle due for Autumn delivery

UK ambulance conversion company VCS said it is on track to deliver what it said is the country’s first hydrogen fuel cell ambulance to the London Ambulance Service by Autumn 2021.

The prototype zero emissions ambulance is the product of the ZERRO (Zero Emission Rapid Response Operations ambulance) project which is funded by the Office for Zero Emission Vehicles which is a team working across UK government to support the early market for ultra-low emission vehicles.

The project is a joint effort between VCS and Promech Technologies, as well as project-lead and hydrogen fuel company, ULEMco.

Mark Kerrigan, Managing Director, VCS, said: “The way in which emergency service fleets embrace zero emissions technology is important for the country’s wider drive towards carbon neutrality.”

The ZERRO project follows the introduction of the UK’s first fully-electric front line ambulance, the E-DCA, by VCS in 2020, VCS said.
