Hyzon: accelerating the energy transitionAndre Lagendijk, Sales Manager Europe, Hyzon Motors

  • Discover why hydrogen is a viable option for fleet operators.
  • Find out when hydrogen is available.
  • Discover if Hyzon can also provide hydrogen.

Andre started at Hyzon Motors Europe in December 2020 and is responsible for the sales of hydrogen-powered heavy-duty trucks in France, Spain, Portugal and the UK.

Before starting this new career, he was already active in the world of emission-free vehicles and applications. In those days either fully electric or hydrogen.

working in the inspiring world of hydrogen mobility. He is proud to make the world a better place to live.

Making Diesel History: deploying a nationwide hydrogen refuelling infrastructure – Brendan Bilton, Co-Founder & Chief Technology Officer for Element 2
